I was very lucky that all my birthday celebrating overlapped a weekend when everyone could be around. Besides dinner out on Sunday and playing Rock Band, festivities continued on Monday. Joel, Blake and Zoe’s surprise birthday activity had to be postponed until today so a lunch date with most of us at Café Max became our alternative activity for the early part of Monday. In the evening, we gathered again for pizza, cake, and gifts.

Ali woke early Monday to make a chocolate wacky cake. When it cooled, Jenna made a special milk chocolate frosting and set it aside for later. I got lots of cards, flowers, a lovely vase, my favorite tea, a Sara Bareilles CD, and a gorgeous framed painting.

The surprise activity turned out to be a 2-1/2 hour ceramic craft experience, which we enjoyed today. Zoe provided the hand prints and I attempted to paint in the rest of our artwork, which once fired, will be a beautiful, personalized baking dish.

We also used some of our outing time on Monday to vote early. Three-day birthdays are as awesome as my family. 🙂
