Yesterday was Rick's 44th birthday. For his birthday I saved my pennies (literally) and took him to Kansas City to dinner at Outback Steakhouse and to a comedy show at Improv Comedy Club. Rick loves comedy and we had a really fun night just being together, sharing a good meal, and laughing.
On the drive home from the show, we stopped to view the strawberry moon, stopped again to try to figure out what some mysterious flying lights were in the sky (UFO's maybe? nah, just planes from the nearby air force base), and then stopped yet again to pick up the lawn mower out of the back of Collin's truck where it sat after breaking down.
Funny story, my sister was on the way back from Kansas City yesterday afternoon and passed a stalled truck she recognized. She called my daughter to ask if that was Collin, and it was. So, she turned around and went back and picked him up. That was a lucky coincidence! And then Rick and I just happened to be on the same highway later that night so we could pick up the lawn mower. My dad and Collin were up first thing this morning to go pick up the truck.
Then we stopped at Walmart on the way home. Yes. There is always a Walmart trip involved in a date, too.
All-in-all it was a really fun day and night and I enjoyed spending it with my husband. We don't get the opportunity to do that very often. I hope that he enjoyed his birthday because I loved spending it with him.
Happy birthday, babe!
