Happy Birthday Brant!

Happy birthday to my amazing, hard working, extraordinarily funny, and easy going husband..and I must not forget "incredible dad"! Today he turned 37 and for his birthday he wanted to go to the beach...despite the fact that it is December and the high here in Sequim today was 40 degrees! But the sun was shining, melting the reaming snow, so we bundled the kids up and headed out for a trip to the beach. It was beautiful, as the beaches here usually are, but after about 20 minutes of playing the wind had blown through us all and we were ready to head over to the little store for some coffee and hot chocolate. This evening my mom made a wonderful dinner and a homemade German chocolate cake for the birthday man. The kids sang and helped him blow out the "fire" on top of the cake. I'd say he had a delightful birthday! Here's to another blessed year!

Ahhh...15 yrs we've been in love!
Once again, no Ben! He's to busy killing something with a stick!

Kids sliding down a sand dune, we love the beach despite the freezing cold wind!
Happy 37th!

Here is Ben in full motion! I caught him in a photograph, unbelievable! I know you all needed proof he does exist!
