Happy Birthday, Daddy!

 Paul's birthday was yesterday, May 23rd.  We don't have a lot of time to celebrate on Mondays (Paul gets home from work at 6:15pm and I tutor at 7pm), we chose to celebrate all weekend!

On Friday, Paul took a half day and we went on a long birthday date.  First, we went to a shooting range (Paul's choice) to practice.  It was my first time...Paul was a good teacher.  I learned a lot!  It was really fun!

We then went out for burgers, fries and shakes at Five Guys.  Mmmmm!  We did some browsing at the outlet mall, and then headed to the Twins game.

 It was a really fun date day!  Thank you to Grandma and Grandpa K for babysitting!

On Saturday, we let Daddy "sleep in" (i.e. stay in bed...hard not to be awake with three excited kids!) while we decorated Daddy's door and made him breakfast in bed.

We then headed off to a family activity (Paul's choice) to go hiking at Lebanon Hills.  I was very impressed as both older kids hiked the whole trail around the lake!  It's fun having big kids!

For dinner that night, Daddy picked to go to a new Mexican Restaurant where our friend from church is the chef.  

On Sunday, Paul's parents drove down to have lunch with Paul for his birthday!  We also got to see many brothers/sisters too!  They took us to a delicious Mexican restaurant that is one of our favorites.  Our Daddy loves Mexican food!  That afternoon, we opened presents/cards.  Daddy got a new watch, as well as some fishing stuff and quite a few freezie pops!  Both older kids made him super sweet cards!

On Daddy's actual birthday, Monday the 23rd, we celebrated with ice cream cake, candles and singing :)

We love our Daddy!  Happy birthday Paul!
