Even Riley seemed to get that this was a special day for her dad. She was been so cute and active that morning, paying special attention to Chris by determinedly focusing on him, as if trying to communicate through her gaze how much she loved him.
We went to Kneaders for their bottomless French toast-so rich and sugary! What a perfect way to commemorate a quarter of a century of life! But really, who needs an excuse to eat such a breakfast?
But wait-the day then got 10x better when we went home and took a NAP! Truly a blessed birthday gift-how many parents of an infant actually get naps these days?! After presents and Chris showing me Fantasia for the first time, he showed off Riley to his friends in the lab before succumbing to the long put-off work.
In the meantime, I grabbed a cookies and cream cake from Coldstone, and my friend Shell graciously bought us dinner that night (Brick Oven!) so when he returned we were able to eat like kings as we watched Big Hero Six. Such a good day!
I love birthdays and having the entire day to think about my Sweetheart.
