My Birthday Weekend

I had the BEST birthday weekend! David really worked hard on planning every single detail and really made it special for all of us.

Friday night, Chloe went to her first slumber party at her friend Carsen's house.
She was so excited and had so much fun playing with her friends, watching movies, eating popcorn and just staying at someone else's house! She's already asking when she can have a slumber party at our house!

Saturday morning, we picked Chloe up and headed to OKC.
 Our first stop was the OKC Zoo. We've talked about going there for a while, but just haven't found the time.
 I'm so glad David did all of the planning for me and I was just along for the ride!

After spending a few hours at the zoo, we headed to our hotel, that David picked out and booked all on his own! It was right downtown and just perfect for our stay!
We showered, changed clothes and walked down to the RiverWalk in Bricktown to find somewhere to have dinner. On our way, we passed these carriages and decided to take a ride around Bricktown! The kids loved it!
On our ride, we passed by one of the places that David and I went to on our very first date!

After dinner, we walked around a little bit and found an arcade that was perfect for the kids. Everything was just their size and on their ability level. It was the perfect cheap entertainment.

The next morning, we got up, ate breakfast, checked out and headed to the outlet mall for a little shopping. This was a treat for me because I know everyone else HATES shopping. So I REALLY appreciated David doing this part for me. We took the wagon and he just walked the kids around while I did my shopping and didn't complain one time, even though I know he really wanted to!

I took the next day, my actual birthday, off from work and it turned out to be a great Monday and the perfect ending to the long weekend! We dropped the kids off at school and then I took a class at the gym. Then we went shopping and went to lunch and then we came home and relaxed in the pool. I might have even fell asleep on my raft! It was amazing!

It was the best birthday. Not because of all of the things we did, which were great and I love having the memories, but because such an effort was made by David to make it special for me and that we did things that I always have to plan for us to do as a family. I can tell that he put so much thought into it to make it special for me and it really was just the best! Thank you David!
