Birthday Weekend.

Ben planned the most amazing birthday weekend. We drove south to a town called Mirissa. It was AWESOME! There were a lot of other families at our resort, which made it was perfect for our active boys. We stayed in a bungalow that was about 20 feet from the ocean. Like I said, it was amazing.
Before I tell you about the awesomeness I first have to tell you that as we were walking out the door, I quickly ran back to get the camera. When I went to take the first picture, sadness and disappointment flooded my heart when I realized the battery was still on the charger at home. Sad.
The highlights for me:
Waking up Saturday morning to the sounds of the ocean. We all immediately put our swimsuits on and headed out the door. It was 6:30.
After spending the morning between the pool and the beach, we all went inside and took a nap. The four of us on one bed. I wish I had a picture. It looked like we fell like dominos. Thomas laying across my feet, Jack's head next to mine, and Ben laying along side all of us.
After our nap, flowers were delivered to our room, followed by cake in the restaurant. Ben had been working on these surprises for awhile, and they were perfect.
Being told that our whale watching tour was cancelled, but that we had a few more hours of beach time.
I realized I LOVE swimming in the ocean if the water is warm and I can see the bottom.

When we returned from having cake, Ben arranged for flowers to be put on our bed.


I am so grateful for moments like these that help me appreciate my life, and my family so much. It was a great weekend.


Speaking of my birthday, have you sent your video or asked your interview question?

I am still accepting both. I was going to do it tonight, but I am tired and I still have sand in my hair, so I am going to wait until my Monday morning (Sunday night in the US of A).

If you send a video I will send you a party favor.

An interview question gets a shout out from yours truly, and the knowledge you have made me happy.


The videos I have so far are AH-MAY-ZING.
