I had to work on my birthday, but my boss let me leave early, so that was a nice treat. I went home to flowers from Rick, who had the day off. We took a long nap at the pool, soaking in the warm sunshine. When I woke up, I picked up Avalon and we went and got pedicures. I love girly time with her, and so does she! We both picked silver sparkles.

On Saturday morning Rick and I took the kids over to Grandma's house for a weekend sleepover. Which meant our relaxing weekend began. We headed out to Jewelry District in Downtown LA and shopped for Rick. Then we sat down to lunch at our favorite sushi restaurant in the valley.

We finished up the weekend by picking up the kids at Grandma's house and enjoyed a family BBQ dinner with close family members. On the way over we moved around carseats for the pick-up, and noticed this:
