Its my 24th birthday

Well it was my birthday yesterday. I think it was honestly the best birthday I have ever had! Well my birthday in Germany was pretty great but yesterday everything was just perfect. We woke up early to Andrew's call and I was glad because I told Daniel I wanted to go walking the morning of my birthday on this pretty walk over by the ocean. So we got up and Daniel told me to go buckle the kids in the car and then he surprised me with my double jogging stroller. I was so happy. I have wanted one since Eva was born and I wanted one after Alexander was born and now I am so excited. So we got to use it on the walk and it is so much easier than two strollers and it pushed along so well. Oh and no one else was on the walk that morning (its usually pretty crowded) and it was raining all night so the walk was nice and cool only 75 degrees and it didn't rain at all on the walk. Then we went home and the kids and Daniel took naps and I watched what not to wear (there was a mini marathon). Then I took a shower with no interruptions and I was able to get ready with no distractions. Then we were going to go to lunch but decided just to go to the mall (they have this great Hawaiian food booth there). But we ended up just going to Macy's (they were having their pre fall sale) and Daniel let me try on whatever I wanted and took Alexander to the ball machine for 40 minutes. I was able to try on 20 pairs of pants and shorts and found a perfect pair of jeans ( I know that is a lot of pants but all I brought to Guam was my maternity clothes and I haven't bought much since having Eva) that I liked so I got them then I found two great pairs of shoes and I got them. Daniel didn't complain the WHOLE time. It was wonderful. Then we went home and got ready for our date. Rachel came to watch the kids. So we went to dinner at the Jamaican grill and it was delicious. Tangy spicy ribs and chicken, they call it JERK. I LOVED that place. I usually hate going out to eat (because of the kids). I hated serving, every minute of it was torture so when I go out to eat all I think about it serving and how horrible it was. But we checked out the street menu then ate outside so we got to look outside. We knew what we wanted so we ordered everything at once. She brought out our drinks and then my fruit bowl and Daniel's soup and the dinner too!! ALL OF IT AT ONCE!. It was lovely. It took her like 5 minutes tops to bring it all out. So we ate and they didn't have good dessert. But WHOLLY COW what a great experience. My best dining experience to date! We were in and out in 30 minutes and the food was sooo good. I hate eating out because when I decide to go eat I am usually hungry and I don't want to wait a half an hour for my food to be made or my order to be taken but that was great.
So we made it to our movie perfectly (we were running really late). We decided to see Mama Mia and Peirce Brosnan can't sing and I even felt uncomfortable when he sang like I was embarrassed to watch. I loved the songs I knew and the movie put me in a happy mood although I will not see another singalong or musical in a long time ( I don't like movies where they keep breaking into song unless its old such as singing in the rain or the wizard of oz or Mary Poppins). Then we went to Cold stone I got pineapple sorbet and I didn't realise until we left that people go there so they can make their "own" ice cream. I didn't want much dairy so that was a dumb choice. But then we got home the kids had gone to bed just fine and I was so happy. What a great birthday I got to go clothes shopping and shoe shopping and wow it was the best birthday ever!!! Thanks Daniel you made it a wonderful day. I felt very spoiled and now back to reality. Sorry I wrote for so long.
