Happy Birthday Bruce!

Aug 5, 2013

Happy, happy birthday, to the captain of our crew!

Today is Bruce Wayne's 30th birthday, and despite my many suggestions of making big plans for the day, Bruce just wanted to keep things low key. So that's what we did. We kept things simple and celebrated as a family. All weekend long. Ü

The 30th birthday celebration started Saturday with a day trip north for cooler temps and some trout fishing. Yesterday we had a little birthday dinner with Bruce's dad- we grilled our fresh caught trout and Bruce blew out the candles on his angel food birthday cake. Today's portion of the celebration included donuts and oj for breakfast, Portillo's Chicago dogs for lunch, finally seeing Monsters University and then Meet the Teacher night at Sunshine's school. We finished out the day with our Back to School dinner and Family Home Evening lesson. Simple, but still special. We enjoyed lots of family time, which was just what we needed before the hustle and bustle of the school year begins. Life is about to get crazy busy so it was nice to relax and enjoy a quiet weekend together. 

We hope that despite the lack of surprise parties or big, elaborate gifts, that Bruce knows how much we love him. The wee ones and I are so very grateful that 30 years ago, our captain, our own personal superhero, was born. We are so blessed to have him leading our family. 

Happy, happy birthday, Bruce!
