My Birthday

31 Mar

Tomorrow is my birthday. I won’t say “which” birthday. I am too many years over 40 now and I’m not happy about it. I know it beats the alternative. I am very blessed too but I sure feel old lately. For my birthday I asked Kevan if I could have a few hours to myself. I wanted to go to to eat alone. No kids screaming, no kids throwing food or wanting to go to the bathroom with me. I didn’t want to have conversation. Lol. I just wanted to be alone. I am an introvert. If I could spend a whole day reading a book all by myself I would be in heaven. I love being alone. Here is my alone birthday lunch today (they are not open tomorrow due to Easter).

Then, I wanted to go see a movie by myself. Yes, I love to go to the movies alone. I don’t know why people don’t like it. It isn’t like you can talk during the movie anyway. Unfortunately, our local cinema had no movies that I felt like I wanted to waste 2 hours on. So, I’m going to go home, to our media room and watch something on Amazon. Kevan is going to make me some popcorn. I’m still not sure what movie I’m going to waste my time on.

Speaking of Kevan. He has been so great. I’m so glad to have such a helpful husband right now during this crazy transition of going from one child to two. I have no idea how I would do it without him. I love you babe. I’m glad you are the one I’m walking through this journey with.

This morning we took the boys to their Grandpa’s farm. We brought or small and big 4 wheelers. They had a blast.

Riding with daddy…

Riding with Papa…

Riding the tractor spike like a horsey. They just did this. Lol. I didn’t tell them to.

Riding the tractor together…

Between rides this was Malachi….wanting to hold our hands…

While little brother explored…

We had a picnic lunch…

Does this 4 wheeler make me look big? 😂

Lets race daddy….

The cows didn’t really care about us…

Now, I’m leaving the restaurant to go watch a movie. Then, I might make me some cupcakes with the boys for my birthday cake. 🎂

    We are so much alike! I LOVE having time to read or watch a movie by myself. Introverts unite LOL! I hope you thoroughly enjoy your day! The pictures in this post are so precious. I can’t imagine a more fun place for two little boys than a farm! The pic of Josiah climbing the ladder is a classic! Never a dull moment! 🙂

    We only know of you through your brother, but my son and I love following your family’s story, Jayde. While you were in China, he asked with anticipation each morning if there was a new post about Malachi. We wanted to wish you the happiest birthday!
