Daddy turns 30

Shawn turned thirty this past week!

It was a very difficult birthday for Daddy. He felt super old and was mopey and dopey all week. Andrea was super patient and a great wife though and helped him through his traumatic week of turning officially old.

Monday, Andrea and Genie put together Shawn's birthday dinner. Andrea made her mom's famous homemade noodles for the first time along with a chicken in the crock pot, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. Tuesday, Shawn took the day off of work and went shooting. Wednesday was the terrible day of turning thirty, and we went to eat at Jason's Deli, and Andrea got a Dairy Queen ice cream cake for dessert. Friday, the Vernons came in town and on Saturday we met up with the Anders and Vernons for dinner at Granite City brewery for dinner.

Shawn had entirely too much to drink, and then was surprised when Andrea brought out the surprise gift! Andrea got Shawn his dream watch! It was the best birthday gift ever! Thanks Andrea!

After dinner we went back to our house and ate cake and played games until we were exhausted.

Thanks everyone for all the gifts and for coming together for Shawn's birthday! It was a memorable one!
