The Mister's Birthday

April is our Festival of Birthdays!
Now that Bubba's is out of the's time for Kevin's birthday!
And since his birthday falls on a Monday this year (tomorrow), we decided to go out for his birthday last night.  We went to the Wildlife Museum and ate at the food trucks they had set up outside first.
A couple times a year, this museum has a light's out event where you bring your flashlights and you can go on a scavenger hunt for animals in the dark.  It was actually pretty fun!
Here we are looking like the tired and exhausted parents that we are!! :-)
So waaaaaaaaaaay back in the 4th Grade, I did a report on this bird called a Quetzel.
I've told Kevin about it a million times but he doesn't didn't believe me.
Until last night.
During our scavenger hunt in the dark, we came across a WHAT???
That's right...a QUETZEL!!!!
Booyah! You're wrong, I'm right!  Na-na na-na boo boo!
(I'm totally reverting to immature childish behavior right now and it doesn't bother me one bit!!)
Anywho, I made him take a picture as proof.
And in case you're wondering, the quetzel is the green bird on the right with the long green tail feathers!

Today, I made my man a yummy Turtle Chocolate Cake for his birthday!
We decided to celebrate today because one of my BFF's is coming into town on Tuesday and I just know tomorrow is going to be a crazy day cleaning and getting ready for company!
The cake DID taste as good as it looks! :-)

I know this year doesn't compare to last year's birthday (surprise trip to the Grand Canyon)...
but stick around until his 40th and I'll make sure to top his 30th!! :-)

Happy Happy Birthday Love!
