Devin's 25th Birthday

Devin's birthday is August 31, but in anticipation of the baby being born so close to then, we celebrated it early this year.

First, we did a home-version of a "couples' cooking class" with our friends, Josh and Joy (Josh's birthday is August 20, so Joy & I planned a combined activity for the boys). The whole thing was a surprise until we got together and the boys got to open their gifts: authentic white chef coats and not-quite-so-authentic (paper) chef hats. They were so excited as they opened them and we told them what we were doing. They got to pick the whole menu of drinks, appetizers, main course, and dessert. They picked root beer, twice baked potatoes, rib eye steaks with mushrooms and salad, and ice cream. We went to the store to get the ingredients we needed and came back and began preparing...



I love this man! He really is so wonderful and I am so blessed he picked me to be with him throughout eternity!
Oh, while we were at the store Devin saw that there was "Birthday Cake" Blue Bell ice cream. (It's a rotating flavor, so they don't have it all the time and Blue Bell is his favorite store-bought ice cream.) He was so excited he did this cute little surprised cheer and smile! It was one of those moments where I was reminded of why I love him, when he does those cute, little-boy-excited things:) Anyway, here he is with his ice cream...

Second, Devin's family took us out to eat at LoLo's Chicken & Waffles in Phoenix. I don't know where Devin heard about it, but it's a Southern thing and so he wanted to try it. I was definitely freaked out at the thought of eating fried chicken and waffles on the same plate for the same meal, but it was really yummy food!
