Happy 30th Birthday Bran!
This big birthday landed right smack in the middle of the week. We made your favorite, sprinkle birthday cake, and "yummy dessert" coconut pie! Yum!
We continued the celebrating over the weekend by heading north, destination: Portland, Maine.
We hit our favorite places, including Ken's Place and the Old Orchard Beach. The weather couldn't have cooperated more, if we had asked. It felt like 75 degrees the whole time we were there. We spent the whole day playing at the beach with the kids. Then, because we had not had our fill yet...we went back at dusk for a stroll along the beach. I had secretly been plotting to light some lanterns off on the beach in Brandon's honor, however, seeing that the beach is JUST as popular at night, as it is during the day, we chickened out! I was bummed, but in all honesty, the lanterns I bought, came with some pretty hardcore instructions, like calling the coast guard. Seriously?! The coast guard?! We ended up tossing a football around back and forth to each other, while the waves rolled in front of us. We had a great time....until the wrath of mosquitos attacked every bit of flesh that was exposed- which was not much since it cools down significantly at night. However, we didn't really want to end the trip with a case of the west nile. So, we left the beach just as quickly as we came.
Bran: I don't know what I did to deserve you, but you make our life, so, so amazing! Happy Birthday!
