We had a great time celebrating Ben's birthday this year---and successfully stretched it out into a two day affair!
Festivities began with a trip to Buffalo Wild Wings, one of Ben's favorite restaurants. Its my love language to him to eat things with him on his birthday that I would normally never eat ;).
I even went all out and accidentally ordered something deep fried. In my defense, the menu said they were crispy tortillas, not deep fried and battered. But anyway, I digress.
The next day, on his actual birthday we did the following, in no particular order:
Ate food with friends from small group, who put together a little birthday bash for Ben,
Made Ben wear funny hats, and sang happy birthday to him to make him feel extra uncomfortable & awkward on his birthday,
Made his favorite dessert: dirt cake,
opened lots of sweet cards from friends & family,
opened presents from the wifey,
ate at least three different birthday cakes,
