....it is also the gift he received from our best friends...
Yes, that's right - our best friends gave my husband a Red Ryder BB Gun for his 30th Birthday! Including those various cans for target practice - aren't they thoughtful! ;) lol!!
And yes...that is my four year old standing with the men as they do target practice - they literally went through 300 BB's that day - did he turn 30 or 13?
Today is actually my hubby's 30th but we had some friends and family in on the weekend to help celebrate this milestone. He's the last, in our close knit group of four, to hit the big three-oh. Do you remember last year? When we had my hubby's birthday celebration at our friend's house?
We had no idea, then, that in a few short weeks we would sell and move and that this year we would be able to celebrate with a bon fire on our own land! Praise the Lord!! And thankfully my husband did not burn off his eyebrows or eyelashes this year and no, no one shot their eye out!
We had amazing weather, great guests, delicious food and lots of fun! As I said, the weather was unbelievable for the end of April and I think a few of us were a tad...uh...sun kissed by the end of the day. We had family in, complete with our two nephews, some good old friends and some dear new ones too! All the kids adored the new play set and Joseph enjoyed eating various grasses and leaves when no one was looking!
Oh and someone gave this crazy lady (me!) a hunting knife to cut up the birthday cake!?!?
Terrifying eh?? - and I'm not all that talented with cutting a cake...or using a knife ....hmmm.... anyways the cake was well enjoyed!
So my sweet hubby is now on his way home from a long day at work. I have baked him a second peanut butter cheese cake to celebrate - because, well that first one was gobbled up too fast! It will just be the five of us tonight, celebrating and thanking God for this wonderful man!
I feel very blessed and honoured to be able to celebrate and be apart of his life! He is the love of my life, my best friend and more then I could have ever hoped for. I pray that God richly blesses him this year and draws him ever closer! I pray that my sweet hubby continues to live boldly and passionately for the Lord and that this year rains down wondrous and amazing things for him.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE!
I LOVE YOU!!
I LOVE YOU!!
