I can't decide whether that's funny or sad.
Today was N's actual birthday. My sweet husband empties the dishwasher for me every morning before he leaves for work, so as a surprise, I did it late last night and left a "Happy birthday!" note in there for him to find. He had slept in an extra half hour this morning so that actually worked out really well!
After N left, B and I quickly ate breakfast and made a birthday card. B dictated what he wanted me to write on the inside, and part of the message included, "I hope you like your card. It's adorable." I had to pretend that I needed a drink of water to keep from laughing when he said that part.
We were going to our monthly outing to the Nature Explore Family Club at a nearby Environmental Education Center, and since B wanted to get Daddy a balloon for his birthday, I had to wake the baby up before she was ready so we could fit everything in this morning. Thankfully, she's a pretty happy little morning person!
We picked up the balloon and headed off to "the garden center" (which is what B calls it). The topic today was "Yummy in My Tummy: Fresh from the Garden." Last month, we talked about pollination and all the different pollinators, which led nicely into today's lesson about fresh fruits and vegetables.
The kids then got to pick fresh produce from the garden, wash them, and bag them to bring them home! What a treat!
N's office isn't too far from the Environmental Education Center, so we headed over there to surprise him.
Hope everyone's week is off to a good start!
