A Monkey Birthday

Saturday was Troy's birthday. I told Troy to wake me up as soon as he got up (he's is notorious for waking up earlier than any man should ever wake up) but he didn't. Luckily, I woke up around 6:30 and discovered him already awake. Don't even ask what time he actually got up...sheesh.

First things first...presents. Troy is also notorious for is guessing his presents before opening them. I don't know if he's ever opened a gift without already knowing whats inside. It's a pretty impressive talent. So this year I took things into my own hands. I wrapped every gift in the same size box with some extra stuffing so that it didn't make any noise when he tried shaking it. I thought it was genius but he claims that he still guessed some of them.

We had thought about going down to Vegas for his birthday (since he shares a birthday my dad as well...crazy right?) because he's really been itching to play a round of golf. We decided to save some money and stick around here since the weather has been so nice. It been in the mid 50s everyday. However, Saturday morning we woke up to this.

Can you believe that?! The nerve. 

With golfing out of the picture, we brainstormed some other ideas and ended up at a gun show. Yes, a legit gun show...where they show guns. Not one where people walk around pointing at their muscles. 

It was actually pretty fun. Troy got to look at all the guns and I got to play with some search and rescue dogs. Not a bad deal if you ask me. Afterwards we went to Cheesecake Factory to celebrate. Delicious. We did some shopping and made it home in time to catch a movie. 

Our movie didn't get out until 9:30 but we were champs and made some homemade brownies after getting home. Had to prove we are capable of staying up past 10 but we managed. We also got to talk to my dad and wish him a happy birthday. Coincidence that my two favorite men on the planet share a birthday? I think not. 

I forgot to get candles so we had to improvise a bit (thus the lack of was kind of sad display). I sung and we ate then fell asleep on the floor while watching a golf movie.

I was so excited to spend the whole day with Monk on his birthday. I'm voting that January 7th should fall on a Saturday ever year. Who's with me?
