Happy Birthday to me! The Birthday Extravaganza!

I love birthdays.  I feel they are important and should be celebrated at every age.  It is the one-day a year each person gets to feel special.  My husband doesn’t share the same school of thought on birthdays; at least not with adult birthdays.  This year he asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday and I told him I just wanted to go to a nice dinner with our family.  He called and made a reservation at our favorite fancy spot.   I was thrilled.  I suggested we take a taxi so that we could have a glass (or two) of wine.  Well, he surprised me with a limo and two-dozen roses!

The kids were so well behaved at dinner and I was a proud mama!   After dinner, the surprise continued as he dropped me off at a friend’s house for a night cap and he took our kids and my friend’s kids to the candy store in the limo.  The next morning, our four year old walked into our bedroom and said, “I had a dream last night, that I went to the Candy Baron, in a limo!”

We had so much fun and I will cherish the memories of that night forever.

What was your best adult birthday celebration since parenthood?
