Our special trip uptown...

Monday was my sweet hubby's 36th birthday.

Since the big kids had the day off from school,
we decided to head uptown to visit Shane at work, and celebrate his birthday over a special lunch.

Instead of driving, we all rode the "train" aka light rail into town
and Shane met us at the end of our ride.

The kids thoroughly enjoyed the train ride.

And of course, a few M&M's here and there helped keep the babies entertained on our trip.

Once we got uptown, we headed on over to Shane's office. His co-workers were waiting on us to get there before they cut into Shane's birthday cake. At Shane's office, birthdays are a HUGE deal! They always celebrate and do things up BIG. Well, his birthday was no exception. Shane's boss and co-workers had totally decorated his cube with a "Road/Bike" theme.


OH. MY. GOODNESS--did they ever do it up BIG!

After surveying the damage...we headed out to grab a bite to eat. Mickey D's seemed to get the most vote's from our little clan, so that's just where we went!
(Where else would you eat with 5 little ones?!?!?!)

Shane's boss warned us that she had put up Happy Birthday poster's of Shane's face through out the entire building. It was the kid's job to find them as we walked on over to the restaurant.

They had a BLAST trying to spot these posters. There were some hanging at Starbucks, some on ATM machine's, and even some hanging at the McDonald's we ate at.
(I hate that my camera died before I got a pic of Shane and the kiddo's at lunch. Oh well, just insert a picture of my kiddo's and their Daddy, smiling and eating their french fries here.)

After our "healthy" lunch, it was time to kiss Daddy goodbye and head back home via the train. A sweet celebration and a great afternoon was had by all!

What a fun way to celebrate with Shane! I am sure he was blessed! And how cool that his work recognizes birthdays in such a big way! The signs all over are such a clever idea. I bet the kids had so much fun hunting them down!
