Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband! I am so blessed to have such a caring, compassionate, talented husband and best friend. Bob is the kind of person who puts others needs before himself, and loves to help others, whether it be handiwork, grilling, or computer work. I love him so much for his generous heart.
We decided to have a big party yesterday for all of our friends. It was pretty low key, but we had a great time playing yard games, visiting, and trying out our new slip ‘n slide!
It was so hot outside, that the air-conditioned indoors felt amazing!

Hans and Jake
There was croquet….
some more croquet (or what looks like pool)
and also bocce ball…which proved to be a good game because we came away with a broken ball and had to fish a ball out of our pond in the front!

Matt and Bob

I wish I would have done a better job of taking pictures, because I realize now I missed over half of our guests! We had 25 friends over…and I hardly got pictures of any of them! Guess I was having too much fun!
Intense Slip N Sliding….
I woke up this morning (at 7am!) to Bob shaking me because he was ready to open his presents!
While he was watching a movie last night, I made his favorite coffee cake and he was SO surprised this morning! I guess me pounding around in the kitchen wasn’t enough to distract him from his movie!
My parents got him this DeWalt drill, a set of Craftsman screwdrivers, and this lifejacket….
which he got to open early because on Saturday we went to our friend Bethany’s cabin (look for more pictures next post!)
My sister and Nick got him this cute Gap shirt.
His favorite present (I hope!) was this Craftsman tool chest that I got for him! I also got him a weedwacker…but that was kind of a selfish gift because the lawn just really needs it!
We are so thankful to all of our friends who helped to make Bob’s birthday such a special day, but more importantly we are so blessed to have such wonderful friendships with so many amazing people!
