Yesterday was Ben's birthday and we did a little family celebration.
Ben had a very long day at the office, so I did a very quick breakfast for the two of us before he left.
Once Ben got home, we had dinner, cake, and presents!
This is what greeted Ben when he came down for breakfast
Birthday plates and doughnuts, a great start to a birthday!
The birthday man and his birthday breakfast
On his way out the door for work.
I know he had a really long day ahead, but at least he got to wear a polo and jeans
(and not his usual suit and tie)
It's the small things people...
Once Elizabeth got up, she found her party hat and had me send this picture to Ben
She was ready to party!
Once Caroline went down for her morning nap, Elizabeth and I made Ben his birthday cake
You have to cuddle before cake making
And you have to lick the spoon...
While the cake was baking, I brought up Ben's presents and set them up on the bar
Once Ben got home the girls had to have a cuddle.
Happy Birthday Dad!
I was trying to finish dinner and Ben turned the camera on me...
Grilled lamb cutlets, mash potatoes, green beans, and a roll
Once Ben and I finished dinner, Elizabeth joined us for cake
Happy Birthday! Make a wish!
After cake, Ben opened presents
He got a #1 Dad badge from Elizabeth
and this shirt...
Ben's parents sent him this shirt
And this tie, and another shirt and a belt :)
(Elizabeth enjoyed getting cake on her face)
This was the only gift Ben gave and "Ooooh!" too
It's from Andy, Lolly, and Annalise and he was very excited about both things!
Meat rubs for the grill and round ice cube molds for scotch
He was very happy!
I got him the movie Let's Be Cops
He also got a new tennis racquet and tickets to the Nats game for Saturday night.
Happy Birthday Ben!
I hope you had a very wonderful birthday, we enjoyed celebrating with you!
We love you!
