Chana Days Recap

I won't lie - this years birthday was pretty great. It was relaxing, calm, exciting, yummy, and filled with friends.

On Friday (my actual birthday), Fred and I went to breakfast then off to buy me some accessories for my new iphone (hello gorgeous...welcome!). Sadly, Freddie had to go bring home that bacon so he went to work and I went to the pool with my good friend Aubrei.

We had a BBQ with our friends Lauren and Tanner that night and then headed to the fireworks.

fred insisted on showing up to the car show in a clean car.

I stayed in the car and entertained myself.

On the 4th, we met Lauren and Tanner at the Scout Breakfast then headed to the Cruise In to check out the killer cars, lame cars, and do some people watching. Here are some gems:

This is a girl.

This is a boy.

**all weekend Fred was really weird. He kept stealing my phone to play games and was texting lots and lots. I just wrote it off.

So on Sunday - after church and a snack we were just hanging out at our house when Jake and Dana came over. Jake insisted on Fred going with him to help do something at their house. So Dana and I plotted for the surprise birthday party I've been planning for Fred.

About 30 minutes later, Dana gets a text from the boys telling us to meet them at the park. We get there and park next to Jake's truck. As we start walking into the park, I'm looking for Fred and I see a bunch of people we know. 'that's weird that they're here' I think.

As we get a little closer - I see a BBQ, more friends, and Fred grinning ear-to-ear. He planned a surprise birthday party for me!

It was so much fun! There were lots of friends we hadn't seen in awhile as well as new friends too. I don't usually get too cheesy about my husband but I will say that this was one of the most thoughtful and best surprises he's ever done! I loved it. I was so happy most of our friends were able to make it!

Overall, Chana Days was a huge success. I can't wait until next year! Although maybe I can because I'm bummed about 24...25 is even older.

Thanks for all the birthday calls and texts!
