I baked a cake for my birthday, too! It ended up kind of messy, but the taste is what counts! It was the best I could do, as I was still dealing with double vision at the time and my hands weren’t working that well. 🙂 My vision is back to normal now!! 🙂

Happy Birthday!

Decorations were designed by me (Kim). Simple.

We had our friends and neighbors over to celebrate with food, drink, and cake!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!

We celebrated the holiday by going to our first Mets game! It was pretty fun! There were some people above us that were a little careless about peanut shell bits raining down on us, and another who accidentally sprayed us with water, but it was good overall! 🙂

Not many people were there. We ended up leaving at the top of the 9th when it was tied 2-2. We took our snacks and our promotional gnome home and settled into air conditioning.

The game was won by the Diamondbacks, by the way – after 15 innings. We would have been pooped and sunburned worse than we were if we stayed until the end.
