Yesterday was Leap Day and a very special day for us as we had a special Leap Day birthday to celebrate around here. We like to celebrate every chance we get, so we celebrate everything. Since Leap Day only happens every 4 years, this was Bob's "Sweet 16" birthday. (I'll let you do the math...) So we made sure the whole town knew about the birthday....

Our close friend/partner Jack, baked and brought him his special Oatmeal Walnut Chocolate Chip cookies....

After Bob got home from his workday , we lit the natural beeswax (of course!) candles on the homemade birthday carrot cake,
sang Happy Birthday, and watched him make a wish, blow out the candles & open his presents. Then we all went to dinner at our favorite local little Mexican restaurant La Cabana . Over the course of the evening, we ate far too much delicious Mexican food, carrot cake and rocky road ice cream. There were a few glasses of Merlot consumed somewhere in there too. All in all, a fun family evening and a very special birthday celebration.
We hope all of Bob's birthday wishes come true!
Happy Sweet 16 Leap Day Birthday, Bob!
