Big Leap Day

Birthday Balloons

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....

and also the Sweet 16.....

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!

The best birthday party I ever had, and shared with my very best friends, two very special people.

And, yes, the gorgeous, work of art, carrot cake that Farmer Jen made was as delicious as it looks.

Sweet 16 and loving it!!
