So as you all were aware, Landon's birthday was on Friday. And I played hookie from work that day so we could go snowboarding and spend the day doing what Landon wanted to do. It was a beautiful morning and Landon ran through the house waking everyone up so he could finally open the giant box that held the death threat. We all gathered round and watched him basically climb inside the box filled with colorful paper to pull out his brand new Play Station 4 with a massive grin on his face. (Best wife award.) Not two minutes later he was setting it up, completely forgetting that we had plans to hit up the mountain. I didn't complain though because of the great lengths I went through to get that machine. I don't even want to talk about it, it was that big of a nightmare.
After he got it all hooked up to the internet so it could spend the rest of the morning downloading his games, we packed up and head out to Sundance. We couldn't have asked for a clearer or more gorgeous day to go snowboarding. I wore my new beard mask that got a thousand compliments from total strangers. And at lunch, we feasted on a nacho monument.
After all the snowboarding we could handle, we went home and got ready for a night of partying with family and a few friends. We had Landon's all-time favorite meal: Country Fried Steak and Mashed Potatoes with a home made Key Lime pie for dessert. Landon and his buddies played on the PS4 while my dad wowed us with magic tricks and card games.
And that was just Friday. Saturday and Sunday we continued to celebrate by going on dates and spending birthday money and on Sunday watching football at my mom's house and eating another favorite meal of Landon's followed up by fresh raspberry cheesecake. That kid got spoiled. I'm so glad he was able to have such a good birthday. He deserves it.
