My sweetie pie turned 29 a few days ago.
He got a TOMTOM from his folks. It certainly was the perfect gift for him, as he loves to spend hours upon hours planning trips and plotting routes. My only concern is that we will get in a crash because he likes to watch the TOMTOM instead of the road ;)

Instead of a typical birthday dessert this year, he requested "Josiah's Favorite Cookies" a recipe I came up with several years ago, but hadn't made in a while. They have coconut, chocolate, peanut butter, nuts, and lots of oatmeal. They are DELICIOUS!
This one was too funny to leave out!
On a recent weekend camp trip we hiked around on some neat rock formations.
One of our family traditions is to get to pick 3 favorite meals to eat on your birthday. Josiah picked homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast, hashbrowns, bacon, and fresh-squeezed orange juice for lunch, and fried fish with Cajun seasoning, curly fries, salad, and lemonade for dinner. My brother caught one mountain-fresh trout last weekend and sweetly decided to give it to Josiah as a birthday present since he had requested fish for his special day. So, he got "real" fish and the rest of us ate fish sticks. =)
We always put the Birthday Bear by the birthday person's plates for meals, and we fill out a page in our Birthday Blessings book, where I list one thing each person in the family loves about the birthday person.

Happy, happy birthday to the man I would go to the ends of the earth for, if need be!
