Weekend Birthdays

February is a busy birthday month for my family. My husband's is the 22nd, my Dad's is the 23rd, and my sister-in-law's is the 25th. My Dad turned the big 60 this month! My Dad is such an inspiration. He works hard, but also takes time to enjoy his family and his passions. He loves to golf, but recently also started playing poker as a hobby. He and my Mom also enjoy the opera, movies, and Broadway. My siblings and I gave him and my Mom a weekend in New York City for their birthdays with Broadway, dinner, and hotel included. We also celebrated with dinner in the city Saturday night and Sunday we had dinner at my parents to celebrate all three birthdays. My sister-in-law, Katie, and I have become much closer since I've had Ellie and she has been a great friend to me and a great Aunt to Ellie!

Here is a picture of my Dad and I from my wedding day:

 And, another from this weekend with his grandchildren (minus one):

My husband and I celebrated his birthday with dinner in the city Friday night at El Vez, a Stephen Starr restaurant. My hubby loves Mexican and we both love Stephen Starr so this was perfect. It was nice to have a date night, especially after a long week of him and Ellie being sick. If you live in Philadelphia you must try this place. I've been there before with friends (and when I wasn't pregnant) and their drinks are yummy, too. We shared black bean nachos and split tortilla soup (with chunks of avocado) to start and he had pulled pork tacos and I had the mahi mahi tacos, which were delicious. After dinner we went across the street and sampled gelato (too full to eat dessert) and I enjoyed a cappuccino while discussing baby names. Ellie adores her Daddy and I know baby girl #2 will adore him just as much, too. They are lucky little girls! And, I am one lucky wife as I am married to my best friend of ten years! I am so grateful to have a husband who is caring, supportive, is a great father, likes to clean!, and works hard to allow me to stay at home. It was a much needed night out with my hubby and a fun-filled and family-filled weekend!

Happy Birthday Dad, Nick, and Katie!
