Birthday Weekend

My birthday was last Friday and Todd took the day off work to hang out and celebrate with Lucy and me.  Although Todd's plan for a hot air balloon ride on Saturday morning were cancelled because of the weather (we're hoping to maybe reschedule again in August for our anniversary), Friday ended up being a perfect day.  We took Lucy to the Worthington Touch-A-Truck event, had a picnic in Schiller Park (we picked up sandwiches at Katzinger's and dessert at Kittie's Cakes), I got a pedicure during Lucy's naptime, and then Todd & I had an evening out while Lucy stayed overnight at my parent's place.  We went to Third & Hollywood in Grandview for dinner and then had drinks at Prohibition in Powell.  It was such a great day and I can't complain one bit about how I spent my 32nd birthday.

Several trains went by while we were there and Lucy was just mesmerized by them

She loves school buses too

Kittie's Cakes

 I really liked how the inside of Kittie's looked and couldn't resist snapping a quick picture

Picnicking at the park 

Todd & his cheesy fake smile that matched Lucy perfectly

Todd & I split a club sandwich, potato salad, pickles, and chips

And we also split a mini Nutter Fluffer cupcake and Micky-O (oatmeal cookie sandwich with some sort of icing/fluff on the inside)

After we ate, we walked across Schiller Park and found a great playground for Lucy to run around on

After we got back home and Lucy was down for her nap, I went and had a much needed pedicure

One of the best things on the menu are their garlic skillet biscuits
Todd got the ahi tuna and vegetables

I had the Caesar salad with chicken, avocado, and corn

On Saturday evening, my parents came over for cake & ice cream to celebrate my birthday.  Lucy was really excited to help me blow out the candles and devoured her cake & ice cream in record time.

Patiently waiting to blow out the candles


Our niece turned 4 last week so we drove up for her Frozen-themed birthday party on Sunday.  It was hot & humid but that didn't stop the kids from running around outside all afternoon.

Lucy had already taken off her Frozen crown but Todd still had his antlers on

Playing with slime....and she obviously doesn't quite have using scissors mastered yet

Beautiful cake made by my mother-in-law

Best picture I could get of the 3 cousins
