Birthday Week!

Because we look for any excuse to party it up, I decided that we would make Tanya's birthday a week long celebration. Here are some of the highlights.

Tanya got a LOT of clothes for Costa Rica/Hawaii, as seen in these gift bags (most of them had entire beach outfits in each bag). I accidentally made the mistake of wrapping up her valentine's gift and giving it to her again, which did not go over well. Sorry! We had friends over for cupcakes, diet coke with lime, and lots of cackling on Friday. Tanya's dad Bart also made a funfetti cake on Thursday. She also got an orchid plant to take care of since our fish Tyrone is not challenging enough.

We went on a date to Macaroni Grill on her birthday. It never disappoints. We loved our lemon rustica and ate 3 loaves of bread (and one to go!) They also let us order any dessert off the menu for her birthday, the opera singer sang happy birthday in Italian, and gave her a flower.

Tanya's mom's birthday was 3 days later so her dad took us all to Bonsai for a combined birthday dinner. It's a good one! Every course is amazing and it's so fun to watch them cook your dinner.

Pennie got her special Glaus Bakery mint chocolate cake, which she shared with us. Tanya's aunt Karen also made this bunny cake. What a week!

I'm a firm believer in "birthweeks" as apposed to birthdays! I'm trying to make it a real thing, so I'm glad to see you guys celebrate that way too :) We just had Landon's birthweek last week too! So fun. Happy Birthday Tanya and Pennie! :)
