So, yesterday was my birthday. I celebrated by taking my boys to the dentist in the morning. Good times. Their teeth are fine. Deacon's 2 year molars are coming in, and Zeke has an absess above one of his front teeth that we need to have checked out by a pediatric dentist. They both freaked out about having their teeth polished (Deacon was crying before he even got in the chair), so they both got, maybe a quarter of their teeth polished. But they were great and opened wide for the dentist.
Even though taking the boys to the dentist made for a long morning, I did have a nice birthday. Saturday we went to Cold Stone Creamery for free ice cream. If you join their online birthday club thing, they email you coupons for free ice cream on your birthday. So I signed us all up, printed out the coupons for Zeke's bday and mine, and we all had some ice cream Saturday afernoon. Zeke decided he doesn't like ice cream though. Deacon on the other hand LOVES ice cream. That's my boy.
Sunday after naptime we all went out to dinner to a local Italian/Greek restaurant in town called Piccolino's. It was yummy. Our waiter was great too. He got the kids drinks in cups that had lids and straws, and he brought them coloring books and crayons that keep in the restaurant. Very cool. Josh and I even managed to eat almost all of our meals before the boys started getting antsy. We were able to finish while we waited for the check. The boys really were very good and I had a nice time out.
Then yesterday, the actual bday, I celebrated by putting the kids in bed a half hour early so I coud watch "Chuck". And while I have not recieved it yet, I'm getting an ice cream maker for my gift from my menfolk.
All in all, a very nice birthday.
