Bronson turned 30 last Saturday, but we have had several parties starting two weeks ago! Two weekends ago we had a joint birthday celebration for Brons and his Dad because his Dad turned 50 two days later (Sorry Doug...I hope you don't mind that I just disclosed your age. :)
Saturday was a lazy day for us around the house and it was actually nice to have Bronson home for once doing exactly what he wanted to do....tinkering with the Vette. By the way, we sold the T-Bird and got a '77 Corvette. I'll save that for another post....but it's safe to say, my husband is officially obsessed with collecting Corvettes now!
Then Saturday night we had dinner with my parents and he opened his gifts from Jack, me, and my parents. I got him the audio version of The Last Symbol to listen to on our way to Mexico, the Complete Book of Corvettes, and a Wii. My parents got him the Wii Fit. I know we are a little behind the technology curve considering the Wii has probably been out for 2 or 3 years now, but better late than never.
Bronson and my Dad admiring his pink cake. I didn't really think about the fact that I was making him a pink cake until my Dad made some smart remark. It was strawberry and I know that Brons likes my strawberry cupcakes.....so sorry for the pink cake babe!
And of course Grammy couldn't show up with presents for Brons and not bring something for Jack. So he got some early Halloween goodies including a talking candy bowl, and halloween cup, and a bouncy ball made out of rubber eyeballs!
Then Sunday evening we had Bronson's celebration at Tracie's. She and Jamie made their delicioius homemade ravioli. I know it's an all day process and we REALLY appreciate their hardwork. It was wonderful, as always. And this time we actually got to finish our dinner without being interrupted with a trip to the ER like last time, if you remember. We tried to keep Jack's hand out of the hot ravioli this time.
