Weekend of Birthdays

Let's just say the fountain coke is my BFF today. Oof.

Friday night Aaron played poker with some of the neighborhood guys. I met some friends at the corner bar to hear live music. I have no pictures. My phone was dead, but let's be honest, I probably wouldn't have any pictures anyway.

Saturday we hosted a surprise birthday party for our friend Bo. We really did pull off the surprise and it was a great time, ending with a garage dance party.

Aaron sang at church Sunday morning. I didn't move a whole lot all day, but I did do my nails:

Sunday evening we celebrated our neighbor Martin's birthday. Martin & Christin and Colin & Amy are next-door neighbors and we utilized both backyards. Colin & Amy just had a big redo of their backyard. It looks amazing.

Bottom Right: They had a large tree that needed to be removed last winter. The landscape designer (who also happens to live in the neighborhood) turned it into a table by using part of a wire spool for the top. So cool.

The night was made even more perfect when Martin's band treated us to a concert of originals and covers.

It was a fabulous weekend. And now I'd like to recover.
