Trek's 39th Birthday

Happy 39th Birthday to the love of my life.  

For Trek's birthday, we invited his whole family to come celebrate with us.  Not everyone could come, but a lot of his family did & it was wonderful.  We love living close enough for family to travel to us & us to them.

On his actual birthday (January 25th) Trek opened presents from Nancy, my family, & us.  He got some really fun things:

Mimi & Baba got him some new guitar strings & a bluetooth speaker.

Justin & Cari got him a nice laptop case.

The kids & I got him a pair of new shoes for work & a quip toothbrush.  He's been
wanting a quip toothbrush for a while now.  If you haven't heard of them
check out the website: quip  The toothbrush is only $25 & it's like a sonicare.
Every 3 months they send you a new battery for it & a new brush head for $5 or
a new battery, new brush head, & 2 packages of toothpaste for $10.  It's a total
practical gift, but he was really excited about it.

Nancy got him some really nice new clothes & some funny pillows.

On Friday & Saturday his family came into town & stayed with us.  Saturday morning we did a big birthday breakfast for him with biscuits & gravy (his favorite), bacon, grapes, & a Potter family cupcake.

His parents brougth him some fun little gifts to enjoy.

We then all went to see the movie "The Greatest Showman" AGAIN.  I swear I could see that movie a thousand times in the theater & still not see it enough.  We LOVE that movie.  The soundtrack plays in a continuous loop at our house & so we were thrilled to go again.  Thank you Tylee & Jeff for treating us all to that.  It was amazing & we are SO grateful.

After the movie, we all went to a laser tag place & played a giant game of laser tag.  This place was awesome.  Even Canyon & Ella (who are 4) could play & they LOVED it.  There was an arcade that the kids could play at too.  I wish I had taken more pictures, but we were having way too much fun to think about pictures.  

And for the record. . . . I'm still the grand champion of laser tag.

After laser tag, we came back to the house & I made a huge Mexcian food dinner with tacos, burritos, nachos, & all the fixings.  There was fruit & veggies & all sorts of yummy things.

And after dinner we had ice cream cake from Cold Stone which is Trek's favorite.

It was SO much fun spending time with family for the weekend.  Trek had a great time & we just loved being with everyone.

Happy Birthday Trek.
