Neil's birthdays always seem to turn into a lengthy event, and this year was no exception! Maybe it's because it falls in February, and everyone needs a little fun at that time of year. No matter the reason, it was another great weekend!

We started the celebrations on Friday night with the Pitman crew, and Neil wanted pizza. So we got pepperoni pizzas from Hy-Vee and a ton of toppings, and made "made-to-order" pizzas. It was fantastic! We finished up (in keeping with the theme) with a brownie-chocolate-caramel-peanut butter cup dessert pizza. Oh. My.

Saturday, Neil and I took off for our first weekend away without Iain. He partied with Grandma and Grandpa Pitman, Uncle Stu and Aunt Becky, and Cousin Courtney, while we went to Madison overnight. We had a ton of fun meandering around in downtown shops and bookstores, sitting and talking as long as our hearts desired in coffee shops and pubs, taking our time over lunch and dinner, soaking in the whirlpool for hours, and staying up late without fear of having to wake up early. (You know...all the things you take for granted before you have a baby!!!) We did miss him a LOT though!

We finished up the three-day birthday weekend with lunch together in the afternoon and presents and a steak dinner last night, along with portabella mushrooms that were about the size of my head!

All in all, a great weekend. Too bad birthdays only come around once a year!
