This year Dave celebrated his 29th birthday! While he was at work, Dawson and I stayed busy preparing for the birthday festivities that evening.
Right before I was expecting Dave to be home, I received a phone call from him saying that he had been in a car accident. Talk about bad luck- who gets into an accident on his birthday? There were thankfully no injuries, but because of that it took police a long time to respond to the accident because they were "busy". Also a positive was the fact that it was 100% the other driver's fault, so we didn't have to pay anything to repair the Corolla.
Needless to say, our birthday evening plans were thrown off a couple of hours. When Dave finally returned home we went out to eat at what Dave considers the best place on Earth: IHOP. I do my best to put on a smile and not make any negative comments every year when he chooses to eat there. After dinner, we came and opened presents and ate Dave's requested treat of no-bake cookies (I married a simple man).
Besides what he bought himself, I surprised Dave with some new shirts since he recently gave a bunch away to the DI. And yes, I made him take a picture with each one :)
Gift cards and money from family
Dave's birthday didn't go at all like planned, but we tried to make the most of it and ended up having a fun evening as a family. Happy Birthday Dave!
