A few days before her birthday, Dad and the boys surprised Mom with flowers, presents, and a cake. We had a busy day on Mom's actual birthday so they decided to surprise her and celebrate early. Mom got a pedicure coupon and a new toilet seat. Both were wonderful gifts. Her flowers are still alive almost two weeks later, and the cake was amazing. It was a mint chocolate cake which is her favorite, and everyone enjoyed it.

|This cake was amazing! Mom hopes to get it every year for her birthday.|
|We love going to Brick Oven even if Dax is always freezing!|
|Dax works hard when he plays goalie!|
|Dax actually does play a great goalie and had some good stops!|
|Mark and Mom hung out on the sideline of Dax's game, and |
didn't realize they matched until they took this selfie to prove it!
The rest of the afternoon was relaxing. Mom read her book for a little bit, and she played baseball with the boys. Mom also received her other present in the mail which was a bluetooth speaker. It has already been the best present. She has used it every day since she got it. We ended Mom's birthday with a game of Kick-the-Can, and then had the rest of the delicious mint chocolate cake. It was a wonderful birthday weekend. Mom loved every minute of it, other than the getting old part!
|Mom is so glad she has these wonderful boys who take good care of her.|
