An Easter Birthday

 This year, 'The Hubs' shared his birthday with Easter Sunday.  He says it has happened before and when we looked at a calendar we saw that it happens every 11 years.  I wanted to make his birthday special so we to a quick trip (just the two of us) to San Diego.  It was perfect!

Happy Birthday, Mister martini! 
We enjoyed dinner and drinks at The Cheesecake Factory before heading to the theater to see Oz the Great and Powerful.

The next morning we woke up (late) and ran to the gym for a quick workout.  We spent the afternoon poolside reading and drinking margaritas.  So nice to sit by a pool with my eyes in a book rather than on three kids.

We had cocktails at the rooftop bar at the Marriott downtown.  We had a perfect view of my favorite little island.

Gigi sent us this picture of the shenanigans that were happening while we were away.

We spent the rest of our night at the yummiest steak house, Lou & Mickey's.  We both had filet Oscar, shared crème brulee, and killed this bottle of delicious wine.
We got home just in time for some early Easter fun.

Grandma sent baskets for 'The Littles' and we let them have at even though it wasn't quite Easter.

She crafted all afternoon in her Ariel costume.

Easter morning...

Three baskets for the three 'Littles'...

...and one for the birthday boy.


 'The Boy's'






We spent the afternoon at Gigi and Pop's where 'The Littles' were spoiled with more baskets and a candy filled egg hunt.


'Mister' got the hang of it pretty quickly.

He dug into the eggs while the other two were still hunting.

"Mommy!  I hear money!"


 I made coconut cupcakes for the birthday boy but forgot birthday candles.  Good thing I found this votive lying around.
Happy Easter/Birthday, my love!
