geoffrey’s 30th birthday

IMG_0007And another one bites the dust! My husband is officially thirty years old, the same as me. This year, he will become a dad for the first time, finish school and have a new trade under his belt, and finally shave his beard. Just kidding. I don’t think that last one will ever happen.

Geoff Birthday 2We celebrated Geoff’s birthday over the course of three evenings, since they’re the only evenings that he has free from work this week. I had asked him if he had wanted a party for such a momentous birthday. He declined, so instead we ended up engaging in a ton of unrelated events. It was not very glamorous, but it was very fun. In essence, it was more our birthday style

Geoff Birthday 1On Saturday evening, Geoff finished work and we went to run errands. The temperature was -22°C without the wind. With the wind, it was -35°C.

Geoff Birthday 3We began at the Dollar Store, then I had a delivery, and we had to get a few things at London Drugs. Next we went to Canadian Tire in hopes of finding welding gear that I could purchase for Geoff’s gift. After not finding anything worthwhile, I had a little cry in the store (thanks pregnancy hormones), and we left.

Geoff Birthday 6Geoff’s real birthday fell on Tuesday. After picking him up a coffee and donut, the dogs and I met him in town after school. I had to drop off my vehicle to get serviced. From there, we went in his truck and to the vet college for Holly’s meds. Then we drove back home where he opened a plethora of gifts.

Geoff Birthday 13Because we didn’t end up spending his birthday with our family, the following night we went to my niece’s skating practice. Geoff played with our niece and nephew at the rink, while I sat and visited with my sister and her other children. Afterwards, we went to her house for cake, where we played with her five kids some more. Then we picked up the dogs and drove back into town to get our vehicle. We stopped at Tim Horton’s for a treat, drove around and talked about our future, then finally called it a night and an end to his birthday celebration.

Geoff Birthday 12All in all, I think that he had an enjoyable birthday. I had always pictured our 30th birthdays turning out differently, with parties, alcohol, and the works. However, this last year has been so eventful. With all that lies before us in our immediate future, from babies, to moving provinces, to jobs, to master’s programs, I think that this coming year will be even more lively. I hope that you will all stick around for the ride.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • In just 3 short days, @omgkersh gets to come home for 3 full (and equally short) days. He has been gone for only 3 weeks. In that amount of time, Remy has learned a few more words, has gone from waking at 5:30 am to now 7:30 am, and goes to sleep at 9 pm instead of 8 pm. She has begun to have tantrums, was babysat 5 times, and she no longer needs me for nap time. The most astonishing thing is that she nearly doubled the amount of teeth in her mouth by getting 3 more! I also had to put Holly to sleep, and to deal with some family issues. On top of all of that, Geoffrey will be gone for an additional 3 weeks until he is home for good. I'm hoping (and praying) that the remaining time that he is away will go much smoother than it did. Lord, give me strength. And coffee. And friends. Some little girl has been throwing tantrums alllllllll morning. In other news, I finally found a chair for this space. Now I just need art for the walls. Any suggestions?
