Last Saturday was Afton’s 1st birthday. I don’t know quite where the year has gone, but it’s definitely gone. Normally I’m not a big fan of birthday parties for 1 year olds, but we were doing cupcake week over at the other blog so I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone! It ended up being the perfect amount of fun for the kids, and there were just enough cupcakes to go around! Afton has been an amazing joy to have in our home. The boys all love her to pieces, and she pretty much has her daddy wrapped around her little finger!
I don’t know what it is about my husband; he’s not the most social of people, yet every year he wants to throw a big party for his birthday. One year we did fajitas and another year we did Turkey Legs. Last year we did something small at home because Doug was still using the cane, but this year we made up for it!
Back in August we watched a Man Vs. Food episode from San Antonio. This involved a 6lb cinnamon roll, and a 30 lb pizza! That’s right, a 30lb pizza! Obviously you know where I’m going with this! We got 8 people together and headed over to Big Lou’s for 42″ of dough, meat, and a few veggies! We also had breadsticks just in case we were worried about not getting enough carbs! We definitely could have used two more people to finish off the pizza in the restaurant. It’s hard to imagine that a pizza that takes an hour to cook is going to taste good, but it really was yummy … once you got over the massive size! I don’t know if 42″ pizza is something that I could ever do again, but it was definitely a fun night!
I think everyone should do a little research into what the Food Network says is fun to do in their town! I check them out a lot when we’re about to make a road trip so that we don’t just end up stopping at McDonald’s when we’re ready to eat!
I will say though, that I didn’t understand the restaurant’s bathroom situation. There were two toilets in one room. There was one door to the hallway, but no doors inside the bathroom. I’m pretty sure you were supposed to lock the door. I don’t care if there were people waiting when I got out!
