Let me tell you about my birthday. I woke up with the intention of doing laundry and cleaning the floors. My husband was working and I was hoping to get to go out for supper that evening. I got ready, did the cleaning and then got a call from my cousin to join them at the pond to fish.
Cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends began to arrive, all showing up to surprise me for my birthday. It was a family afternoon at the pond, one of my favorite things. My daughter and my aunt had been busy cooking up this surprise just for me.
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, and the sky was the most beautiful blue. We went for walks, blew bubbles, and did a little unproductive fishing.
Yes, he’s eating a minnow. All part of a day filled with fun and laughter.
After the sun started to go down, we rounded everyone up at my house where they had a fish fry planned.
We ended the evening sitting round the fire pit playing with glow in the dark glasses.
This day combined all of my most favorite things: the outdoors, family, good friends, and it was all done right in my most favorite places, our family land and my home.
Birthdays just keep getting sweeter. I’m so thankful to have such a loving family.
