We celebrated my 30th birthday a week early so Catalina and I each can have our own “day.”  I requested a date night.

It started with Rico sending flowers to my work.

Nana Erika graciously volunteered to watch the munchkin so we could head to downtown Seattle for an early dinner at the Rock Bottom Brewery.  Delicious beer cheese & pretzel bread and yummy burgers.  We were too full for dessert so we took a walk down to the waterfront to catch an amazing sunset!

Rico wrapped up the night with dessert at the Cheesecake Factory! I am one spoiled lady!

For Catalina’s birthday weekend, we started with a morning at KidQuest Children’s Museum in Bellevue. Her favorite part…washing her hands after playing with the shaving cream art.

She had to have washed her hands about 7 times during the 10 minutes at the table, lol.

On Saturday afternoon – we threw a small party with pizza and cake for Catalina. Rico also baked Catalina and I each our own jumbo Texas sized cupcakes.

On Sunday, we took advantage of the dry weather. We headed for Thomasson’s Family Farm in Enumclaw. Catalina rode her first “horse” and loved it!

And because Rico has slight pyro tendencies and loves Halloween…this is what Sunday night looked like…
