Yesterday was my 22nd birthday (like you didn't already know that), and it was a good a good day.
It started off with me waking up (dur) and seeing a pile of presents on the table. Ok, not a pile, but a few. :) I wasn't expecting much this year with our money worries, but mum made sure I had something to look forward too. I got presents from McGee, Coda, Eowyn and George. McGee gave me a POTC pen with Will Turner on it. Mmmmmmmmmm, Will Turner pen. Eowyn, Coda and George gave me one of the books off of my list. Mum gave me a pink faux pearl necklace with matching earrings and bracelet. I then opened the pressie that mum and dad got me. NCIS season 1 on DVD!!!!
Yaye! I bounced when I opened it, because I am a nerd. :P
Afterwards mum went out to pick up the cake. And when she got there the cake wasn't ready. The woman who took the order was sick and the other employee's apparently didn't bother looking at the orders and so the cake wasn't ready when mum got there. She had to wait 20 minutes while they made it up. Wankers. After the little delay we head off to pick up gremmie_goo
and head to Maplewood Farms.
I hadn't been to Maplewood Farms in years. I think the last time I was there was when I was in kindergarten. It's basically just a local farm/petting zoo with lots of
animals. We lucked too, because we read in the paper that there were two new arrivals at the farm a week before, Prince and Tom, two Belgian Work Horses that are retired logging horses/hay ride horses. We were looking forward to meeting them. ( pictures ahoy! )
After the farm we decided to grab a late lunch/early dinner. We went to the Marina Grill which has yummy seafood. We just relaxed and talked and watched this guy get hoisted up the mast of a sail boat.
We then went over to the movie theatre to see what was playing. After much confusion and indecision we decided to see The DaVinci Code
, but it didn't start for another hour, so we went to Starbucks and I got a free drink because gremmie_goo
told the guy it was my birthday. When I handed over my partner card he was like "No free drink for you then!". He was kidding of course, but the majority of the drinks I get from Starbucks are free (because I drink them on my shift). But it was still nice to get a free drink on my birthday and he even wrote 'Happy B-day' on my cup. :D
We went to the theatre to get the tickets and while we were in line we decided not to see The Davinci Code
and see Over The Hedge
instead. I guess we really just wanted a silly 'don't have to think about much' movie. It was really cute and I liked it a lot. gremmie_goo
was nice and bought me a POTC 2 popcorn bucket at the concession! :D I now have a bucket with Will, Jack and Elizabeth to put stuff in. ( Theatre photos )
After the movie was done it was time for cake! We came home and got it out of the freezer.( Mmmmmmmmmmm cake )
So yeah, it was a good birthday and I had fun and my mum and Leann had fun. It'll be something I remember for a long while. Now tomorrow I get my pressies from dad and his birthday dinner to me! :D
