Best part of your 4th of July weekend?

Did you dress yourself/kids/dog/husband in patriotic clothing for the 4th?

The best mom in the world just had a birthday!

My mom’s birthday was on Monday! Doesn’t she look really good for 40? 😉

We started the celebration on Sunday with lunch at Friendly Farms. This place is awesome…I had a crab cake and fried shrimp and the table shares a bunch of all you can eat sides.

My Aunt Janice (my mom’s sister) and my Uncle Gren were nice enough to come and surprise my mom. 🙂

We continued the festivities on Monday and my mom and I enjoyed dinner…and lots of cake! Chocolate cake with whipped frosting to be exact.

Baby Photo Shoot

This morning started with french toast

024

stuffed with this stuff.

After breakfast, my SIL Emmy and I went to the gym.  We had to get in a good workout to compensate for the gigantic dinner we were going to eat.

Today’s Workout

40 minutes on the elliptical at level 12

028

Rowing machine on level 10 – 4 intervals:  2000 meters, 1500 meters, 1000 meters, 500 meters=5068 meters in a little over 25 minutes

032

I ended with a one mile run on the hill setting for a quick 100 calorie burn.  I left the gym sweaty and happy :).

When we got home we prepped Annabelle for her photo shoot.  Emmy, who takes awesome pictures, was nice enough to take some shots of baby AB for us.  Here is a little sneak peek…

043 045 047  Absolutely love them.

We went to dinner at one of our favorite places ever…Friendly Farms.  Before you are seated, you order your main course…crab cake, shrimp, fried chicken, steak, etc.  Once you sit down, you are given appetizers such as cottage cheese, warm apples, cole slaw, apple butter, and rolls.  When your main course comes, you are given french fries, corn, and green beans.  Everything is served family style and you can get as much as you want :).

I ordered the crab cake and fried shrimp platter and it is sooo good.  Also, check out that roll…it is fried dough covered in sugar and I could eat them all day long.

034 033

AB was super excited about my crab cake.

035

Dinner was followed by ice cream…but they don’t let you have as much as you want :(.  The moose tracks is by far the best flavor and I ate it too quickly to even think about a picture.  Morgan and I were twins in our American Eagle sweatshirts.  We are trying to make matching cool again.
