Joe's 31st Birthday
Joe's 31st birthday was a weekend extravaganza! Although his birthday was Sunday, the celebration started Friday night at Clay's Smokehouse Grill with friends Craig, Lauren, Tegan, Brian and his girlfriend Nancy. We continued our fun weekend with dinner the following night at Pepitas, a local Mexican restaurant that is one of our favorites. Although it was a difficult challenge, I was able to keep Joe from opening his gifts until his birthday morning. Joe received a pair of Air Max Nike running shoes, Blazer tickets and Polo shirt from me, A Baby Bjorn and 2 baby Polo shirts from Leo (although, those are kind of gifts for Leo), a Borders gift certificate from the Wolves and concert tickets from his Dad and Paula. Brian treated us to dinner at Clay's, which was so awesome! My Grandparents also gave Joe a check, which he used to buy some new Polo shirts (what a handsome guy)! As you can gather, there is a bit of a trend with Joe and Polo stuff.
Joe's cool new shoes have a computer chip located in the heel that transmits his running progress to his IPod and then can be downloaded to the computer. Very nifty and high-tech....which is perfect for Joe. He tested out his new shoes at the gym on his Birthday- now that's dedication!
