He got an early birthday party in Galveston with the Mehtas, complete with presents and a cake!
On his actual birthday, he probably got the best present he could have hoped for --- a morning to sleep in! Little Olivia is usually our 6am alarm clock, but for some reason, she decided to sleep in till about 7:30! Feeling well-rested, we enjoyed a birthday breakfast together.
That evening we drove to College Station to spend the weekend with the McGuire's. A birthday weekend is best spent with best friends!
We were able to score a babysitter on Friday night after the kids went to bed and enjoyed a delicious sushi dinner.
The next morning, Olivia was anxious to get her hands on sweet Baby Win. After being well-trained by Bethany and baby Grace, Olivia knew the rules...Uncle Lloyd and Aunt Jennie were constantly asked during the weekend "Can I touch Win? Can I hold Win?" (Much to this mamma's relief!)
A little story time before heading out to the ranch.
There we enjoyed golf cart rides, good food, some more reading time, and exploring the ranch.
I'd say it was a good weekend because this was my view on the way home!
And finally, we had another birthday celebration with Pop-O & Tutu.
We have noticed recently that when Olivia gets around family, she becomes extremely extroverted and relishes in being the center of attention. We have taken to calling it "The Olivia Show" because she really does put on a 1-Woman show for everyone. She does tricks (wanna see how fast I can run/jump/ride my bike?), she dances, she sings, she tells stories -- it's really quite the show. And, Matt's birthday celebration was no exception. We got a special showing of The Olivia Show - Princess Edition.
First Fairy Abby Caddaby entertained us
And then Princess Elsa joined us for some biking, dinner and presents!
Hopefully Matt had a great birthday celebration and felt special by all the people who love him most -- especially me!!
And, now, it is October and I am slightly exhausted, but excited for some cooler weather and Fall activities!
