Happy birthday, Ben!!

Ben turned the big 3-0 yesterday and we've been celebrating since Friday. On Friday I surprised him by whisking him away to St. Augustine for the weekend---what a fun trip! Ben's parents kept the children for us (thanks again, Carroll and Nancy!) and we were able to spend our first trip away together with just the two of us since before Grayson was born. We stayed at Casa Monica Hotel, which was absolutely gorgeous and right in the middle of the historic district. We went on a carriage tour, a trolley tour, a ghost tour (we loved us some tours!), went shopping, and ate some fabulous meals. It was so nice to spend time as a couple instead of parents for a weekend, even though the children monopolized many of our conversations. :)

We finished up the birthday celebration with a little party last night with 20 of our closest friends. Everybody came over for beer and cake for our first party at our new house. Happy birthday, old man!!
