Fortunately my birthday fell on a Saturday this year and one advantage of getting older is to know a little better where the fun is and that's how it worked:
Friday: Tim stays home from school, Marco comes home from work early, we go to the zoo, we visit the new penguin-habitat, I go toy consignment shopping, Dinner at Tutto Bella with Salad Pizza and Nutella Icecream.
Saturday: Sunflowers and salmon for breakfast, phone calls with family, gifts, a biketour with my new, great electric bike, nap, friends come to visit, Maroccan Chicken for Dinner, Hat-Party, Winetasting, stupid German comedy, in bed late (1 am!)
Sunday: Breakfast, Pretzel baking, walk, webcam chat with brother & family, Weisswurst with fresh Pretzels, Alki Beach Picnic with sandtoys, kites and cake, Dinner at La Rustica with Marco & Creme Brulee, kids in bed, favorite TV episodes & online surfing.
A lot of nice moments. A lot of nice people. A lot of cute kids. A lot of nice phone calls. A lot of nice emails. A lot of nice pictures.
Optimistic, curious, human bee.
