Birthday 5 & 35

Yesterday was the long awaited day for William and myself, the day to celebrate our births. We had a nice morning at church and then home for some quiet time. At 2:30 our friends the Gleason's came up to hang out with us for the afternoon/evening. Kevin was willing to watch the 3 boys along with his 2 girls while Lauren and I escaped on the ranch for an adventure. And an adventure we had! I wanted to show her the place where we drove to the other night on our bear hunt, but I didn't realize how far back it really was. We made it, but I was hurting and not looking forward to the jog back. The total trip ended up to be 12.85 miles!!!! My body was really not prepared for this, haha, but we DID IT. The view was just as beautiful as I remember and we had a lot of good conversation in those 2 1/2 hours exploring the ranch on foot. We saw a few groups of dear and one really beautiful buck and that was about it (which we thought was perfect)
We enjoyed a chili & rice dinner when we got back (and about a gallon of water each) that Lauren had made and brought up. Then of coarse no Wrenn birthday is complete without a funfetti birthday cake! For William it was in the shape of a fire truck :)
Once the friends left, we opened a few gifts. William enjoyed opening a car transporter, two more characters to his Thomas set and a few books. Billy surprised us all with Rainbow flipflops that he bought at the outlet store in San Clemente after his CPAT in Orange on Saturday. He is so thoughtful! All in all it was a fantastic birthday and we still have one low key friend party on Tuesday for William that we are holding at playgroup at the park :)
Happy Birthday William (and myself) Here's to another great year!

PS, I have been told I need to make a birthday goal..... great idea, I will work on that.


  1. Love the picture of you and William together. Happy Birthday to you both. Happy that I got to talk to you today. Love you lots!

  2. Sounds like an almost perfect day! Thanks for sharing it.

  3. I think it is great that you went on a run for your birthday... on my birthday I think it would be a treat NOT to exercise. ;)
    Glad you two had a good day. Love you guys.
