John surprised me by making me one of my favorite meals - gnocchi(sp??) I love the homemade stuff from my mother-in-law (compare all the ones I eat with it). John had her help (the chicken had to cook most of the day for the broth). While I was at rehearsal, he and Abigail went to grandma's to finish making it.
I was VERY surprised and loved it!! It made for a great ending to the day with my little family.
He topped it off with one of my favorite desserts: strawberries and cheesecake.
The other big birthday fun was an overnight to a resort. This is partly a big deal because it was the first time I left Abigail like that. I have been away from her for work, but John was still home. She also was left with Grandma one night because we were out late and would have been dropping her back off early the next morning.
It took me awhile to decide on going, but I am glad we did. We found a last minute deal on Hotwire.
John slowed down as we turned in because he already knew I would be getting the camera ready to take a picture.
Here was the view from our room.
We pretty much did nothing, but enjoyed being together. Here are some fun views from walking around the resort.
We even went all out and ordered room service.
