Last week was action-packed here at the Barrett household. Steve turned 30. Jack got his first pumpkin. Okay, that doesn't sound like much, but really, it was.
I had the day off on Tuesday. So in the afternoon, Jack and I met up with the Carro's for a visit to Goebbert's. It was so much fun. Jack just loved playing with Olivia. I loved hanging out with my friend.
Thursday was Steve's 30th birthday. We celebrated first thing in the morning with the opening of cards and presents. Jack was so happy to celebrate too. He woke up smiling and laughing. I think that's what got Steve to be happy to open cards and presents at 6 a.m. On my way home from grad school, I picked up the second part of the celebration - the Chocolate Cake Shake from Portillo's. If you haven't had one of these, you need to. It's liquid chocolate cake goodness.
The birthday celebration didn't end there. On Saturday, after some hard playing around the house (and Jack starting to scoot/army crawl around the house) we headed off to City Grandma's house. Jack got to play with Nannie and Papa Pete while Steve and I had dinner with Phil and Nikki at Kuma's Korner.
This is the place for metal heads who like burgers. The rock music blasted while our thoroughly tattooed (and very knowledgeable) waitress waited on us. Just to give you an idea of how hard-core this place is, Steve's burger had a fried egg on it. My cousins Scott and Andrew, as well as my sister Connie, will love this place. We can't wait to go back.
We then headed down the street to Chief O'Neill's for some drinks. It was nice to feel like we lived in the city again, if only for a few hours.
Sunday was nice. Steve got his homework done. I got to catch up on sleep. Jack practiced maneuvering around the living room.
Alright, that about covers this past week. Here are some photos from Goebberts!
