This is a big deal, but Luke doesn't seem to think so. After asking and asking Luke what he wanted to do he said that he just wanted to hang out with us and maybe go try something new for dinner. That wasn't going to fly with me. Turning 30 is totally a big deal and just going to dinner wasn't going to cut it.
For weeks I thought of what magical event I could do for him, but again, he didn't want that....so I had to settle on this...
Thirty gifts for my thirty year old.
Luke was pretty surprised when he walked in and saw is table of gifts. He didn't know what to do or say, so he got on the table and posed. Haha.
And one by one he opened each gift.
I loved watching him open each gift because he was so excited. His favorites among all of them were his hat and his backpacking stove.
Later that night we headed up to Ruth's Diner. Luke had heard great things about their Mac and Cheese and we had never been there before so we thought "why not".
We didn't love it and thought it was way over priced (people tell us to go there for Breakfast, but who knows if we will ever go back), but we still had fun.
Later that weekend we had birthday cake. Oreo Ice cream cake that Luke made himself because I am such an awesome wife like that. We didn't sing him Happy Birthday or have any candles for him to blow out OR get to stuff his face in his cake which Oliver was sad about, but I think he had a pretty great birthday anyway.
