Today is such a special day! It is Alec’s birthday! This weekend we did all that we could to celebrate his big day! On top of his birthday, he is starting a new job as an elementary school art teacher. With him being busy decorating his classroom, Saturday we did some shopping. We bought cute ‘Welcome’ banners and other things! We spend a few hours in his new classroom getting it all ready for the student’s return. Saturday night we went out to dinner at one of Alec’s favorite places to eat. They are known for their sourdough crust pizza. We met up with a few of his friends. I stayed for dinner and headed home while they hung out and played a few games at the restaurant.
Sunday Alec’s parents came over to our house for a cookout. We’ve been able to see them a lot lately which is nice! We grilled out burgers and had roasted potatoes, broccoli, and chips. For dessert it was homemade banana bread! One of Alec’s favorites. After his parents left, Alec was able to relax a little bit while I had one more thing! I make homemade bagels sometimes and Alec’s one request a few weeks back was that I make those for him. I have to admit they are pretty good ð.
While it seems like his birthday was yesterday, today is his actual birthday. We both have to work, but I’m cooking one of his favorite meals tonight for dinner. Homemade crunchwraps, like you would get at Taco Bell. The last surprise I have for him is tonight. I’m going to take him to our favorite ice cream spot for dessert, but my whole family will be there to do one last celebration for him! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALEC!
