Birthdays, birthdays, and more birthdays!

My husband Lee turned the big 30 on the 30th of July.  It was a pretty big deal I thought.  A milestone, plus his golden birthday.  I wanted to plan something amazing for him.  But, he wanted to keep it low key. The day before his birthday we took him to Blissful Yogurt and ate some delicious Fro-Yo.  He then went to the store while Paisley was napping and came home with a mountain bike!  Although, I am a little irritated on this one, only for the fact that I had a really nice mountain bike, and last summer he told me to get rid of it, because I never use it and it was taking up space.  Now he has one, and I don't.  But my birthday is coming up at the end of the month, so maybe I will get one!  Hint, hint, Lee.  :) Anyway, on the morning of his birthday he went fishing with my dad and my brother-in-law.  While he was gone, the girls and I went to work on making him a few gifts.  I had the girls (mostly Tyra) tell me 30 things they love about their dad.  Then we put the pieces of paper in a jar and tied some ribbon around it. 
When he got home we just hung out around the house.  I made a dinner for him.  His request: ribs, roasties, and veggies.  He didn't want a cake since I was making him one for the next day. 
So, that was his big golden birthday.  Nothing crazy big, but he enjoyed it.
The next day was Sunday.  We celebrated Lee's birthday, my niece McKelle's birthday (who's is the same day as Lee's), and Paisley's birthday.  Paisley and McKelle are only ten days apart, which makes celebrating together lots of fun!  We got together with my family, and my sister's in-laws and celebrated all three of these birthdays.  We let Paisley open her presents that day, so it was like Christmas in July.  Wrapping paper was EVERYWHERE!    Shanny (my sister) and I decided to do Mickey and Minnie for the girls since they both love Mickey and Minnie Mouse.  Shanny's friend made the cakes and cupcakes for us.  They turned out so cute! I made a cake for Lee, so we had 3 cakes, and 24 cupcakes!  YUM!   I love celebrating birthdays!  I can't believe that my baby is almost 2!  Time flies by so much!   It seems just yesterday I was bringing her home from the hospital. 
Now, get ready for lots of pics!  Enjoy!
