Spoiled rotten and baseball

I awoke on my birthday to an intoxicating smell of sausage, scrambled eggs, croissants, bread and fresh picked raspberries. Keith woke up early to surprise me with breakfast in bed. It is a big deal when he does this because he is NOT an early bird by any sorts. Each of the kids ran in and brought me cards that they had made and signed, a fresh flower picked from my garden was in a plastic kid cup.  It was so sweet. To top it off I got a gift certificate to my FAVORITE bead store ever. I asked dad to bring breakfast in so we all could eat together. We ate breakfast warm and snug in  my bed. Who could ask for a better way to start a  birthday?

Later on after swimming lessons and exercise class we gathered ourselves together and headed to Corvallis to meet Keith for my birthday lunch. I love Chinese food so of course we headed to King Tin. It is NOT the prettiest restaurant at ALL meaning there are Christmas lights left up year round and the decor is so outdated it has not been in fashion for a couple of decades. The egg rolls are to DIE for!

Afterwards the kids and I headed to the blueberry patch and picked a small bucket for snacking and went home to relax until the game. In the evening we headed to watch a local baseball team, the Corvallis Knights play against Portland. The knights won 5-3, scoring two runs in the 7th inning. It was a lot of fun for the kids and us to watch. We had not been to a knights game since Chloe was a baby. Since I do not go to Corvallis much any more since moving two years ago it was nice to be on OSU's campus again. It is such a beautiful campus to walk along. I miss it sometimes.

After the game was over  the kids were able to run the field around the bases.....Taylor LOVED it.
He wore flip flops that night and finally just took them off and booked it several times around.
I think it just made baseball all that more special to him.

I had a relaxing birthday spent with the ones I love. I feel blessed and eternally grateful for what the Lord has given me into my hands, for my cup runneth over with countless blessing.

I have a simple life really.....

But when all is said and done..... 

What more could a girl ask for!
