Just three days after my birthday is Jeff’s birthday. He likes to tease me that we are the same age for those three days. But I know he’s still a year older. Jeff took the day off to enjoy his birthday. After my Bible Study Fellowship class, we went out to lunch and enjoyed a walk through downtown and along the river. It was amazing to see the huge log jam at the old bridge.

Later in the day both Anna and I had a performance at the Mall of America (Ellie came along) and Brandon had to work at his job at McDonald’s, so Jeff and Austin had a dinner out to celebrate. When we got home it was time for cake (another wonderfully decorated Ellie creation) and presents. Now we’re done with the birthdays in our house until next month (there are 3)!
