Birthday Weekend! The big 30!

Yes, my sweet husband turned thirty on Sunday. Matthew had the best birthday weekend ever. He started it all off with an amazing steak dinner Friday night at Cimarron complements of Uncle Peery. The company was awesome and the steak really was to die for. He had an excellent romantic walk with the love of his life (me) in Bricktown. The best part was it was while consuming a treat from Marble Slab Creamery. We got to talk about life and goals and where we want to see ourselves further down the road. When we returned to our apartment his whole class of FAA students was across the hall at a friends apt. watching "the game" but stopped long enough to sing happy birthday. It was pretty neat. Saturday morning we got up and drove to FedEx because Matthew has the best brother in law ever! Nick had overnighted us tickets to the Arkansas/Auburn game on the 50 yard line!!!! It was so neat to get to see Matthew so excited. We had a great time at the game. It was such a close one. By the time we had navigated our way out of Fayetteville it was 11:15. We decided that there was no way we were going to make the 3 1/2 hour drive back to OKC. We headed down 540 with everyone else hoping for a vacancy. We stopped at a place in Van Buren. The next morning we decided to drive into Fort Smith. We ate a very late breakfast at Benson's Grill. AMAZING! Then we headed to the actual fort. We went to the museum and learned a lot. Our tour of Fort Smith ended long about 3pm when we decided it was probably about time to head back to the OKC. The next three hours we spent snacking on Sonic and discussing the injustices caused by our ancestors. It got pretty deep. Well although I was very long winded I hope you enjoyed my journaling of Matthew's 30th bday weekend. We left the camera in the car by accident so here is the only picture I took. We were following "Tusk" up 540 with all the other "overdressed" tailgaters.

I love you Matthew, I'm excited to spend another year with you and am greatly anticipating what God will do with this one!
