After breakfast, I made the bed, did the dishes, and took out the trash....four presents right there. Luckily I bought her some actual things cause she didnt accept doing the dishes and making the bed as presents. I gave her running shoes, sandals, and a slacklining set, all stuff to get her out of the house and back into shape, we both need it. The day continued as we made our way to Corona for lunch with Chelsea's friend, Lindsey at the Olive Garden. The all you can eat salad was amazing as usual. Next stop was Chelsea's parents house where she opened up more presents.
Our busy day followed with a stop at my cousin Amy's house for her birthday/graduation bbq in Riverside. It turns out that my cousin Amy was born on the exact same day and in the same year as Chelsea, and almost the same city, just a few miles apart, crrrrazy. It was then off to Mexico Restaurant with a ton of married friends and kids for free chips and salsa and nachos (wait a minute, was it my birthday or Chelsea's, eh, doesn't matter).
We all then ended up back at my parents house for social hour and baby holding with a little foozball and singing to Chelsea mixed in. The party was soon over, though, for almost everyone there had at least 1 baby and it was way past all their bedtimes (9:00pm, lame).
However, this party was not over for sometime around 11pm we hear a ding dong from the doorbell and who else could it be than the newly born Natalie Jane Loera. Yeah, she was just born and somehow she got to my parents house by herself AND rang the doorbell, its like 5 feet off the ground!!! Oh yeah, Juan and Audrey were there too and we had a nice long chat about baby stuff and passed little Natalie around. She is a cutie.
Thanks to everyone that came and for the gifts for Chelsea, we had a lot of fun and Chelsea had a good time too. Happy Birthday babe, my life is so good with you and can't wait to see where life takes us together...hopefully its to the casino...and you win lots of money playing blackjack...and then you buy me an ipod...
