Birthday weekend fun!

The first weekend of November was John's birthday weekend, and we did it up good! Aunt Terri came to town to watch the kiddos, and John and I went out to dinner at Lidia's in Kansas City. Alone. By ourselves. This just doesn't happen that often. It happened to be First Fridays over in the crossroads art district, so it made our Friday night date even more special.

The next day, we all had a very special date at my friend Erin's farm. Erin had a big bonfire and barbecue, and it was a great time. The weather was perfect! It was also a milestone day for the Taylor family...Sam and Sloane's very first pony ride. I even got John on a horse, for the first time in 30 years. :)

It was a pretty perfect weekend, and what I hope was a pretty memorable birthday for John.

Sam and John on Gordo...Sam was not impressed, per usual. :)

Look! It's an urban cowboy!

Sweet Sam, enjoying the stock tank with the goldfish in it. A pasture full of ponies to ride, and my kid wants to play with the fish. Typical.

Me taking Sloane on her first pony ride. She loved it! There will be many more to come.

Hello Gordo! My name is Sloane. I am a diva.
