Last Friday was my birthday, so I've been celebrating since sometime around August 1st. At the last minute last week, however, my husband had to go out of town for work for several days, coming home the evening of my big day. It was one of those situations where staying home with my children allows for life to be much less complicated than it would be if I were also juggling a 40+ hour a week job. The blessing of this is not lost on me.
We had a playdate on Thursday with Fort Worth Moms Blog at a local park. It was a great turnout and a fun way to meet some other Fort Worth Mamas. That's one reason I love FWMB--it's allowed me to widen my circle a bit and make new friends. I've also learned a lot more about Cowtown and fun things to do with my children around the area. Total bonus.
Speaking of, here's one of my most recent posts about the Amon Carter Museum's Art After Dark. I'd never been there. It was cool, and they had free frozen custard. We are all over that!
After the playdate, I loaded up my babies and headed to my hometown to visit my family. I love that my kids will grow up knowing my town and my old haunts. Even Jack is convinced that the best snow cones in the world come from there (because it's true.) We had a great visit, and my parents kept them so we could go out for my birthday.

I came home on Friday for a birthday date with my husband. He took me out to Mercury Chophouse in downtown Fort Worth. We had a good night of catching up and ... quiet! Our house is so strange without our cuties at home. It was a great birthday, and I'm excited about another year with my sweet little family!
Does anyone have any fun little kiddo plans now that big kids are back in school?
