Shawn's birthday

This past Wednesday was my 36th birthday. On Tuesday, we did our family pictures up in the Amelia Island area, and then afterwards Grandma Alice and Grandpa Rick took us out for dinner at Cantina Laredo. Unfortunately, I forgot to get a picture on Tuesday.

My birthday was Wednesday, and I played tennis with a friend in the morning and then worked all day. The kids were home from school since it was Veteran's day, and we'd planned to take them to tennis in the afternoon like usual, but I was feeling restless since I hadn't gone to lunch and we decided to skip tennis. We went to the Cheesecake Factory, ate some dinner, and then ordered strawberry shortcake for dessert. Paige had been quick to mention to the server that it was my birthday, so she wrote happy birthday on the plate and a few of the servers sang Happy Birthday to me. I think Paige liked it more than anyone.

Paige made a cute birthday picture for me as well. It showed me standing next to a cake with three candles, and Paige next to me in a beautiful purple dress. We are both very hungry for the cake and our tongues are sticking out. It was very thoughtful of her, and nobody had even prompted her to make anything for me.
