Last weekend we celebrated the BIG 4-0 with Matt. We are just in a crazy busy season with the kids activities so we anticipated it to be a weekend full of baseball...until...it rained, and rained, and rained some more. Therefore, he got to enjoy a very lazy birthday at home, which couldn't have been more perfect! He wanted and needed down time more than anything.
His parents were in town so I decorated the dining room instead of the kitchen for our traditional donut breakfast. But then he said, I just want to sleep in and have Waffle House for breakfast. Hey...that works too. Except there was a 30 minute wait at Waffle House so we ended up at Joe's Diner.
Cooper wanted to unwrap his presents...and...insisted Matt keep his eyes covered. Matt was a good sport and let Cooper enjoy opening all the presents.
Cooper's face...too funny!!!
Like I said...all day long. Here James is wishing him a Happy Birthday from the hockey game all the way in Minnesota!!!
If you know Matt, you would NOT be surprised that he picked Moe's for dinner. Sweet Cooper could just not hang...he fell asleep and didn't wake until the next morning.
And you cannot have a birthday without blowing out a few candles...
How he really feels about the big 4-0...
Pretty sure this flat Matt had him laughing all day...all our family and friends were so sweet to take time to send him messages.
And honestly, how can it not be a good day when people like Donald Trump and Miss Mississippi wish you a happy birthday???
