Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Happy Birthday Daddy

Saturday was Mark's 31st birthday and definitely a reason to celebrate. I wish I could take credit for this idea but Mark came up with it all on his own. He found all these free food items that you get on your birthday. I love anything free so I was in!

Here are some pictures from our day of fun.

Megan was so excited, she couldn't wait to get started!


Stop #1: Caribou Coffee. Here is Mark with his free drink. Mark picked a large Caramel High Rise

Stop #2: Krispy Kreme. It says online you get a half dozen original glazed doughnuts and a mug with coffee. But, when we asked for our freebies we were told that promo was no longer available, bummer. He did get one free doughnut, we bought a few more and called it breakfast.
(Here is Mark driving to stop #3 recovering from a Doughnut Coma)



Stop #3 was a detour to the liquor store. I told the cashier it was Mark's birthday and asked if he could get anything for free. He pointed to the big bucket of dum dum's. Might not be the bottle of Maker's Mark I wanted but it was still something free. Meg loved it!


We also stopped by the Land Rover dealer to pick up our free admission certificate. They even took the truck to the admissions place and had it done for us! We love them!


Stop #4: Red Robin. After Meg's nap we headed out to Red Robin for dinner. Mark got the Whisky River Burger for FREE! I also had a coupon for a free kids meal. What a deal :)



Needless to say we were full and had friends on their way over to our house so after Red Robin we had to call it a day and go home. But today we used Mark's birthday coupon for a free ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery. He also has a coupon for a free scoop at Baskin Robins that I'm sure he will use before it expires on 1/7/08.

Happy Birthday Mark, this year was a great one. I loved spending the day with you and Megan. We love you!
