The BIG 3-0!

Chris turned 30 this week and we enjoyed celebrating his birthday together! We started the day with a special treat - Blueberry Stuffed French Toast! It's a family favorite, but sadly we're now officially out of Michigan blueberries...we're looking forward to going picking in July!!!

It's our tradition to let the birthday-er choose the dinner and dessert and we open presents at dinner. So, Chris chose pizza and apple pie. We'll be enjoying all of his presents in a couple weeks when we road-trip to Phoenix for a Red Wings game - we're all going! Chris and the boys also got Red Wings shirts to wear to the game, and Chris will get to do a little "fun shopping" while we're there.

I had fun decorating the house for this momentous occasion. Chris even said "You decorated. It seems like more than normal." I don't usually do much for either of our birthdays so it was fun to play it up; the boys thought it was great to have balloons and such for Chris and it was nice that he enjoyed it too!

We are so thankful for Chris and all he does for our family and we look forward to many more years of enjoying life together!
