Daddy's 28th Birthday!

We had a great weekend celebrating Rodney's birthday! Friday night Thomas, Brooke, Camden, Carter & Caley drove down to eat with us at OSAKA. Rodney loves Shogun in Huntsville and Osaka is the closest we have here in Florence. Grandmother Johnson, A. Carolyn and Amy met us for dinner as well. We had a good time laughing, eating and watching Caley and Marah when the flames go high. They brought out a big drum and sang Happy Birthday (which the Japanese guys stayed as monotone as you possibly could singing). I think they stayed on the same note the whole time. His candle was on what looked like a couple of Twinkies - not sure. Rodney shared those with the kids.
Marah didn't keep her present a surprise from Rodney so he was ready to open his presents Friday night (his birthday was not until Saturday). So all of us were okay with that. We sort of picked an Auburn theme this year. Marah picked out an Auburn cap and Joshua got him a couple of nice Auburn shirts. They had so much fun picking out a gift and wrapping it all by themselves. Then of course decorating it with all kinds of stickers. I got him tickets to the 2nd Auburn game of the year against Southern Miss. Upward Soccer starts the week after that game, so I thought he would like to get to an early game this year, since we'll be tied up with soccer for awhile. The month of August will be so crazy for us with Joshua starting school, his birthday, Rodney's 10 year class reunion, Dittos for Kiddos and then some where in there Macy will be born. So hopefully Rodney and Joshua can enjoy going to the Auburn ballgame the first weekend in September. It should be a nice break for him.

Rodney's parents and Ryan & Kellie came down for the day on Saturday. Ryan and Rodney played some golf, while Kellie and I took the kids to the pool until they got back. We had lots of fun. His parents took all of us to eat at Texas Roadhouse (yummy-thanks for dinner), then we let Rodney blow out candles again at our house. I think he had a good 28th birthday! Me and the kids sure did have a good time!
