May 9: Happy Birthday to Daniel

Happy 30th birthday to Daniel!

We celebrated last Friday by going out to dinner with friends, so today was fairly low key.

Audrey helped me go shopping for Daniel's present, and she insisted that we get him five presents!  So we picked out five (fairly small) gifts for him, and then we gave them to him throughout the day today.  This was the first test of Audrey's ability to keep a secret, and she failed miserably.  She told Daniel multiple times what his presents were, sometimes right before he started opening them!

On Wednesdays, we normally take dinner over to our friends Adam and Lindsey.  (And on Tuesdays, they bring dinner to us...we've been doing this since September, and it's a lot of fun!).  Instead of dropping dinner off at their house today, we invited Adam, Lindsey, Simon and Elliot to come eat with us and enjoy some cake for Daniel's birthday.

Our meal was pretty good, if I do say so myself!  We had some of Daniel's favorite foods:  BBQ shredded chicken sandwiches, homemade WHITE hamburger buns (he requested something with white flour, as we eat wheat almost exclusively these days!), roasted potatoes and asparagus, and some fruit.

Here is Daniel's cake (dessert #3 of the five I am planning to make this week!).  This cake was nothing fancy, just a box cake mix and tub of frosting and lots of sprinkles.  Audrey was in charge of the sprinkles, can you tell??
