Well today is the day. The big 3-0. I made it with little or no trouble. I got a few "old man" ribbings and I responded with a few "whippersnapper" comments and the like.
The morning started off good, Lily and Lorna were happy and everyone got off to work/daycare on time and without any trouble. Work was pretty easy going today. Lots of birthday wishes from friends both here and at work and on Facebook. I thank you all! My boss took me to lunch which was nice and I got out the door on time today!
My birthday party was great! I got to spend time with my family as well as some extended family. We had dinner and some wonderful cupcakes that my wife prepared. They were awesome, key lime, coconut with white chocolate icing and sunny lemon with lemon curd. If you want the recipe, let me know, I will direct you to it and you can make and try your own.
As I grow older I learn to appreciate the time spent with family even more than the gifts, but this year's gifts were pretty cool. I got tickets to a Nascar race at Texas Motor Speedway, Gift cards, a Wii game, some movies, a LSU window cling, a St. Patrick's day stein, and and sweet Ipod touch. I have a first generation nano, but the touch is so much cooler. It is basically an Iphone less the phone calling capability. I will be sure to download plenty of music, videos and apps. I am sure you will find out about some of my favs soon!
Overall this was a great birthday and I look forward to this year, thirty is not so scary, at least not the first day. More to come, stay tuned.
PS I am working on a big blog but it has been a little delayed as I cannot find all of the stuff I am looking for, but soon I will.
