Birthday Celebration for a Grownup

Written by dad - 2 Comments

Guess what? My birthday is this weekend. While there was a time not that long ago (okay, okay, it was a long time ago) that I couldn’t wait for my birthday to roll around because I’d get a bunch of presents (not to mention that it marked the end of the school year and the beginning of summer), I’ve reached a point in life where birthday’s aren’t that big of a deal to me.

No, I don’t dread birthdays. But I no longer get summer vacation, and gifts (the materialistic sort, anyway) just aren’t that big of a deal anymore. After all, if I want some sort of gadget, tool, or whatever, I can just go out and buy it for myself. That being said, I love doing special things with my family.

Thus, when my wife suggested a weekend away (with the kids and all) I jumped at the chance. This afternoon we’re taking off for a weekend away in a nice hotel. We’ll do some swimming and sight seeing, and spend the balance of our time hanging out and relaxing. Now that’s what I call a Happy Birthday.

  1. Happy Birthday!

    I didn’t do anything for my birthay two weekends ago. I wanted a GPS but haven’t bought a thing. I wish we had time for a weekend away, I put away $500 for a weekend away but no time. Sigh.
