turned, well I don’t know if he wants that number public knowledge; but his age did change today.
We had a great day. The kids and I planned and prepared for our BIRTHDAY PARTY all morning; while Jonathan did rounds at the hospital.
Once he got home, we headed out to lunch.
We decided to eat at Children’s hospital which is where he is working.
I know that sounds strange, but they have the best food; and it accommodates to all our tastes. They have so many items to choose from: salad bar, pizza, grill, and home- cooked, stick to your ribs kind of food. With so many options, we can make everyone happy.
It is also such a fun atmosphere with a fun gift shop, and beautiful scenery. The kids enjoy being a part of dad’s life outside our house, and Jonathan enjoys sharing it.
Jonathan pointed out some neat artwork that lined one hallway. It was all done by children. It had been framed and was a small art gallery that was a tribute to children and their creativity. This was my favorite part today. It helped me think about great art projects for the kids. The two older kids could not believe how much talent that some of the small children have.
We also enjoy hanging out in the lobby, and small park area. Just look at the scenery.
It is right across from the capitol.
It has beautiful streams and waterfalls. These connect to little streams and waterfalls that are indoors; where sick kids make wishes with pennies, nickels and dimes. We even saw a dollar bill in there today.
It was so beautiful that I couldn’t help but take a picture of the birthday boy with the crew.
…and all their birthday kisses.
Then we went home for our big party.

Jonathan loves ice cream so it seemed like the perfect sort of soirée to throw.
We laughed, giggled, tasted and shared.
We enjoyed our time together eating Jonathan’s favorite treat.
Little Miss even got in on the action.
Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?
(our kids favorite song these days; they like naming off all their cousins as having their hands in the cookie jar)
It was a marvelous day.
Jonathan’s night ended perfectly. He was able to go out fishing with his BFF, Brady.
I think if he were writing this he would tell you that his 30
something birthday turned out pretty spectacular.
We love you Jonathan.
We hope your day was special.
