i love surprises! (even if they aren't for me)

3 for 3!! you'd think he would catch on?!

well, I can now post fun details about Jake's birthday because....wait for it....we finally bought a new computer!!!!! the crowd goes wild!!!! that's right people, and we even made the switch and got a mac! i'm pretty excited about it, although i feel very old as i have no idea how to do some very basic functions. oh well, it's fun to play with!
so, as i mentioned, i love surprises!!!! i have surprised Jake with something big for his last 3 birthdays! and this year was another success!

what he knew: i was getting a babysitter and we were going to dinner and a movie to celebrate his birthday.
we were celebrating a week early because he had games the friday night and saturday night of his bday weekend.

what he didn't know: his parents and i had secret plans since THANKSGIVING!
Grandma and Grandpa Reynolds were flying in to babysit Makenzie.
i had hotel reservations.

how it all went down: friday, jake went in to work as usual. about 4pm i picked his mom and dad up from the airport and then headed in to DC. I met him at work and told him our babysitter canceled and that i had to find a last minute replacement. then i showed him a picture on my phone of his parents at our house with makenzie! he couldn't believe it!

we ate way too much amazing food at Mortons Steakhouse, got our favorite DC cupcakes at Red Velvet, saw a movie and slept in at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in DC. Saturday was just as fun sleeping in, shopping, and having a nice lunch.

and then of course we couldn't wait to see Makenzie again!!

Thank you! Thank you! to mom and dad for making this fun surprise possible!!

the next weekend was his actual birthday and Makenzie and I made him his fav breakfast of chocolate pancackes, he opened lots of presents and then we had lunch at our favorite pizza spot, We The Pizza in DC! even though he had to work that night, it was a fun day!

Happy Birthday babe! Here's to many more surprises!!
