The big 3-0!

Rog turned the big 3-0 on January 5th!

Corbyn was my shopping buddy the Saturday afternoon before his birthday. That night I put the finishing touches on his homemade gift and wrapped all the presents. Sundays are crazy at our house (although a little less crazy this year because we have 9:00 church), so I wanted to have everything ready before Sunday hit.

His birthday was on Monday. The U didn't start school until the following Monday (the 12th), so we got to spend the whole day celebrating! We started with presents.

He got a soccer ball (want), a pillow (need), tech gloves (wear), and Elder Hollands' new book, To My Friends (read).

He also got his marathon frame.

And keeping with tradition, Corbyn got him a bad guy to fight against his Ninja Turtles.

We had homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast. For lunch we were supposed to go to Texas Roadhouse with all of the Riries, but we found out they are not open until 4:00 on weekdays. So we went to Golden Corral instead. We went to the outlets to exchange a coat he got for Christmas and when we got home, we let him play a video game for a bit. We were all still full from lunch, so we didn't actually eat dinner. 

Then we had the Woods over for a birthday treat. We had Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars instead of a cake because we were kind of sick of cake after Jared and Cailey's wedding. (We ended up taking home a lot of the leftover cake.) 

On Friday night we went with my parents to Texas Roadhouse (for our date exchange) and you better believe I told our waiter it was his birthday, so he'd have to sit on the saddle!

I gave him a hard time about already falling apart before he turned 30 (with losing his hair and having old man feet), so bring on 30!

Happy (late) Birthday Young 'un!
