…was technically almost 2 months ago. But, I had been holding out hope that Joe would blog about it, but he has decided this is now my blog, even though when it started it was “our blog.” I think Joe would say that he had a rather nice birthday. Joe bbq’d and we had some friends over. Although I have to admit, that morning I was not looking forward to having people over, because I was exhausted. But, I felt better as the day went on and it was fun. I guess, too, it was a big contrast from the year prior when people where here until 2:00 am. This year, Jude (well, more Joe) made sure that the party was over by 9:00.
The next day, we went to brunch at Nutty Brown Cafe with Joe’s family and our friends Steve and Courtney (and their two girls). Joe and I love Nutty Brown. We went for my birthday this year, but it seemed like it was 10 degrees hotter outside when we went for Joe’s (which is probably was — the difference between May and July). Overall, I hope Joe had a great 30th birthday, and enjoyed his first birthday as a dad.
