Love me some cake

Every once in a while you get those years where you birthday is on a crappy day of the week. Not one of the awesome weekend ones. Well this year was a bit of that for poor Matt. We started our drive to Canada on Saturday. Sunday was Fathers Day, on which we drove all day. You can imagine of fun that was for him. He did get a watch he's really been wanting, but that was about it. The next day, Monday, was his birthday. We had just gotten into the hotel Sunday night... I knew nothing about the area... and he had to go to work. The kids and I did our best. Birthday gifts weren't the funnest. He's really getting this road bike he's been wanting.

But I couldn't very well pick that out without him.

Or drive it to Canada for that matter.

So he got a card. Saying he was getting a bike.

Super exciting. No?

The kids picked out their usual type of gifts. A bike bell (at least it went with the theme this year), and nerf football (one of the girls actually), cologne (no it wasn't me that picked it), and some chocolate eggs.

But the best part of it all was the cake. Oh that awesome so delicious cake. Luckily we had an awesome grocery store close by, so we drove over in hunt of a cake. Picked out this awesome looking/sounding cake. We dig in... and


We couldn't even eat the thing. Even the kids were talking about how gross it was, which kids are usually pretty adept at eating anything with frosting on it. The cream was horrible in it, the texture was disgusting... just the whole thing really. It was so bad, we still are laughing about it. Wow. And that was our first experience in Canada! Needless to say, the entire thing ended up getting thrown out. We did get to go to an awesomely nice Italian restaurant close by. So that helped even the score. Just a little though!

For me though, it was the best Father's Day/ Birthday because we actually got to spend it with him. I mean, really. Other than work.. one of the days he was trapped in the car the entire day with us. And then we had him all to ourselves in a little hotel room. We have been seeing so little of each other lately, that I was very happy. :) I love this man to death!

Love you babe! Happy Birthday!!!
