Happy Birthday DaDa!

We are heading out to the beach tomorrow so I thought I would go ahead and post Matt's birthday wishes a little early in case I don't get a chance. My sweet wonderful husband is turning the big 30 on Sunday!!! We love birthdays around our house so we have been looking forward to this for quite a while.

I asked Ben about a month ago what he wanted to get DaDa for his birthday and he said "a hat." I thought ok we can do a hat. So I took him to Dick's sporting goods a couple of weeks ago to pick out a hat. I asked him what kind of hat and of course he said "golf hat." So off we went to the golf section where they have probably 25 hats. I pick up each hat and show it to Ben and ask if this is the hat. He says "no" over and over. Finally on hat # 23 he says "yes!" He had the hat in mind that he wanted to get his daddy! He also picked out golf balls and golf tees (a lot for that $6 he has). Of course the minute daddy got home that day he said "I bought you hat, balls and tees." So much for surprises! I also told Ben about a couple of other presents I got Matt and of course he promptly told! I knew if we wrapped the presents that Ben would bug Matt to open them so we waited until yesterday and of course the first thing he wants Matt to do when he comes home is open presents. We tried to talk him out of it but there was none of that to be had. So Matt opened the present from Ben (and was shocked!). Here are some pictures from their gift opening time.

Note the perfect hat that Ben picked out!
We are excited to be heading down to the beach to celebrate Matt's birthday. We have done this for the past 2 years. We pick up Matt's favorite cake from the best bakery in Birmingham! It will be a fun week!
Happy Birthday Matt!!!
