The thing about growing older is birthdays don't seem to matter as much.
Don't get me wrong.
I still love a good dinner with the husband and small gatherings with friends. But I'm slowly and surely edging away from big celebrations and crazy parties.
Last Saturday, the galfriend and the husband conspired to book a yacht for the morning so that we can all head out to sea, as a little birthday treat. I knew of the plans prior, but still it's such a thrill to be spending some time onboard a boat with my favorite people.
The kids had a ball of a time. My little girl took to it like she had always been lounging in a yacht whilst the boys were lapping up all the packets of potato chips that the crew has laid out.
We got a chance to explore St John's Island for a bit but it was sooo hot that we retreated back to the boat for a BBQ prepared by the staff.
The girlfriend baked a gorgeous 3 tiered chocolated cake iced with marshmallow icing. It was so yummy that my baby was licking her fingers clean.
I have to say I left the yacht feeling happy like a lark. There was everything to love that morning. Great weather and great company.
Thank you for a wonderful birthday, guys!!
