April Birthday Fun!

Chris and I both have birthdays in April, so it's usually a month filled with a variety of good times. This year was no exception.


Technically, we started the celebrations at the end of March with our friend Dave's birthday. Like so many of our celebrations, it was enjoyed at Disney World. 

Our Goofy kid and Mater at the Flower & Garden Festival at Epcot.
Dave and James like to wear many hats. All of them silly and fun. 
Look out for the ninjas!


My birthday was next and Chris took the day off so we could spend the day together at the Flower & Garden Festival. I love flowers, Epcot, and the many awesome foods and drinks available during these special events, so jackpot!

Love my little family!
This dragon in China was really cool!

Knowing I love gifts that are both meaningful and useful, my wonderful boys surprised me with a homemade gift designed by James. It's an elephant-shaped earring holder to hang in my closet with the necklace holder they made me last year. I love it! 

Safety is adorable!

I was lucky enough to also enjoy a wonderful birthday dinner with friends at one of my favorite restaurants, Francesco's. I wish we had actually taken a big group photo! Thanks again to Caroline for watching all the kiddos so we could enjoy adult conversation!!

Stacy and I all dressed up and ready to eat! And drink! See our smiles? They say, "Woohoo! No Kids!"
My grandparents, Tom & Joyce, came over for a birthday visit as well. James made them pipe cleaner hats. 


The fun continued with small celebrations and fun times out and about.

James lost his top two front teeth within a day or two of each other.
Our caterpillars completed their metamorphosis and we had butterflies!

Chris's birthday wouldn't be complete if we didn't spend the day at Disney (seriously, we do go other places), so we hung out at Dockside Margaritas at Disney Springs listening to Matt play and then headed over to Epcot for a fun dinner with friends at Biergarten Restaurant in Germany. 

James made Chris a book of all his favorite things that they do together. So sweet!
Chris's parents surprised him with an acoustic bass for this birthday. He's in love!

Still not too big to sit in my lap and snuggle. For now. 
Matt and Ayesha took us out to the amazing Jazz Tastings for great food and even better live music!
