Happy Birthday Chris!

Today is Chris' 30th Birthday. Hopefully the kids and I made it a special day for him. After letting him sleep in this morning, we made him blueberry pancakes with the fresh blueberries that we picked this weekend. The kids made a scavenger hunt for Chris about the 30 reasons that we love him. Then we went to church and they did not have to page us to come and get Perry (something that hasn't happened in a long time), so that was Perry's gift to Chris. We went out to lunch and then Chris, Kaden, and Emmy took a bike ride and went on a nature walk. We finished the night off at the Japanese Steak House and home for cake. It was a relaxing but fun day.

The kids insisted that Chris had 30 candles on his cake.

Here are the 30 of the many reasons that the kids came up with for loving Chris
1. He fishes with me
