Wednesday, April 13 - Annika's birthday
We went shopping in the morning, to pick up a few things for Annika's party on the weekend, and an ice cream cake for the evening. I made Annika a special birthday lunch of grilled cheese sandwiches, pickles and chips (her request). While we were eating, I asked her if this was a yummy lunch, and she replied "it's a healthy lunch!" I guess we'll need to have a chat about what the word "healthy" means. :P When Carey got home we gave Annika her present - a trike. She was very excited about it. Then we went to Carey's parents' place for supper to celebrate both Annika's and my birthdays. Supper was delicious, but right around dessert time Emmett decided to start crying, and didn't stop until we left. So that was a bit unfortunate, but other than that it was a good time.
Thursday, April 14 - My birthday
Even though this was "my day", it was still mostly about Annika. I took her to her first swimming lesson in the morning (Emmett stayed with Carey's mom). We went to Perkin's for lunch with my mom, Carey's mom (and Emmett) and my 2 sisters-in-law. After a bit of down time in the afternoon (during which I was cleaning up and getting things ready for Annika's party), we had a quick supper and were off to Annika's first ballet class. Emmett stayed home with my mom, as Carey had worship team practice that evening. I had considered going out after ballet class (my book club was meeting, and I wanted to go even though I hadn't read the book), but I was so beat that I ended up just vegging out after putting Annika to bed. Carey came home from practice with 2 surprises for me - some beautiful flowers, and a Blizzard (courtesy of friends of ours). I had bought my own birthday present earlier (a great deal on eyelash extentions), so I wasn't expecting anything else. It was a nice end to the day.
