Marvin turned 28 on Tuesday. We celebrated by going out to El Agave - it is a Mexican Restaurant. It food was great but they only had one dessert; it was a soaked crepe in dulce de leche (sweet milk). I thought it was disguesting but Marvin seemed to like it. To make up for the bad dessert I made him homemade white cake with chocolate frosting. I also found birthday candles in spanish "feliz cumpleanos". He enjoyed his day.
This is a quote that he wrote to a friend in an email about his day:
"There is nothing like celebrating your birthday at an elementary school. Not only is everyone genuinely excited for you to the point of hysteria, but they all try to shower you with only their most precious of possessions. I got so many stickers and bookmarks (one of which was sweet) that I am going to need an additional Jonas Brothers backpack just to get it all home"
Marvin and I are going to an all inclusive resort next weekend and we will be celebrating his birthday then too! We tend to take trips instead of buy gifts for each other!
Plus! Marvin got a 2 birthday cards one from his friend Jason and another from a great lady at our church- Jean Porter- that one arrived ON his birthday. Which is A: shocking that it got here the day of and B. amazing that it got here in the first place with out being opened. We've heard rumors that there are more on their way :)
