Oh my gosh! We had soooo much fun with friends and family this weekend!!! Drew just turned 30 years old on Tuesday and Saturday was my 31st. Here's how we celebrated...
After dropping the kiddos off in Lindale, with Poppa and Gigi, we headed to Fort Worth with our friends Melissa and Jerrod. Jalee and Chris followed behind us and we all stopped for a yummy lunch at Taco Cabana as we drove through Dallas. Before checking into our hotel rooms, we shopped a little in downtown and stopped by Starbucks. At the hotel, we spent some time relaxing and getting ready for dinner. The view of the Water Gardens was beautiful. We met up with Laura, Lynn, and Matt for an absolutely DELICIOUS gathering at PF Changs... we had egg drop soup, calamari, crab wontons, honey seared chicken, mongolian chicken, sweet and sour pork, and lots of other scrumptious entrees with perfect little desserts. Our waitress kicked butt; she even put little candles in mine and Drew's desserts after taking group pictures for us.
We headed back to the hotel rooms for cocktails with lots of friends. After some laughs, 16 of us squeezed into the elevator and into a couple of cars for a fun night at Pete's Dueling Piano Bar. That place ROCKS!!!!!!! We all jammed to songs from the last 3 or 4 decades while the piano players joked around and encouraged more drink purchases. What a fun night we had!
After sleeping in a little, we all packed up for breakfast at The Corner Bakery... mmmmm :) We then went to the Water Gardens for a few fun photos.
We stopped in Arlington for lunch, hosted by Lynn and Matt. They were all ready for us with balloons, flowers, cards, and burgers on the grill. Thanks, guys! It was great :) Jerrod and Melissa rode back with us to pick up Caleb and Caraline at the Bed & Breakfast.
Drew and I also want to thank everyone for helping make our birthdays soooo special! Thanks, Mom for the spending money... Thanks, Laura for the shopping trip beforehand... Thanks, Eric for your help with the hotel rooms... Thanks, Dad and Antoniette for keeping our little rugrats so we could get a break... Thanks to ALL of our friends and family for our 40 or 50 birthday wishes that we received over the weekend!!! We love you all and we truly feel blessed for having such an amazing circle of love around us! :)
