Happy 28th Birthday to my favorite person! We like to celebrate all weekend long around here. Friday night we had cake and ice cream with friends. Alex requested this from scratch vanilla cake with homemade buttercream frosting.
Saturday, the chosen activity was to race slot cars. Alex has been wanting to get into building his own slot car tracks (always the hobbiest), so we went to check out Races2U. We raced on three different tracks-a miniature of the Formula 1 track in Austin, a Nascar track, and a drag strip. It was actually really fun! Saturday evening Alex had to work...boo. We had been invited to go to dinner with some friends to celebrate another birthday. Luckily Alex got off work in time, and we got picked up in a stretch hummer to go to dinner! It was a super fun and awesome night with friends, and kind of neat we got to go for a ride on Alex's birthday weekend.
Monday, Alex's actual birthday, we went to dinner at Crave downtown and had Asian food for appetizers and American food for the main course. You get whatever you want on your birthday, right? Alex also opened his present and I got the best video of his reaction. (I've been forbidden to share on social media.) Trust me though that there were lots of giggles and smile on my end. I love surprising him!
It was a great weekend and I'm so grateful this guy was born!
