Happy Birthday to Me!

Yesterday was my birthday, and I had a great day. Brad let me sleep in while he got up and took care of the babies. Then, they went out to pick up my present while I got ready for the day. When they got back, we went to the zoo. We only stayed for about 45 minutes, though, because it was so hot! (It was 100 degrees when we got back that afternoon, but it may have been hotter while we were at the zoo.) After that, we went to Landmark Mall for lunch at Dairy Queen. On the way in, we spotted some cute Eeyore pajamas, and Brad bought them for me. When we got home, the babies went down for a nap, and Brad gave me the birthday presents he bought me, some dishes I like and this beautiful diamond ring:
At 4 pm, the babysitter came, and Brad and I went out. We were going to go see Fool's Gold, but the internet site was wrong, and it wasn't at the theater, so we saw The Other Bolyn Girl, which was very interesting and well done. Afterward, we had eaten too much popcorn to eat right away, so we went to a couple stores that are hard to go into with the babies (they like to grab everything now!) Around 8:30, we went to our favorite Chinese restaurant in Doha. When we got home, I opened the present from Brad's parents, a digital keychain and the movie Enchanted, which we watched today--it was fun! My brother and sister-in-law sent us a gift card from Amazon.com, and I know there are other presents in the mail. :)
The whole day was great!

Happy Birthday!!!!

It sounds like you had a great day and what a pretty ring. You'll have to show it to me on Weds.

Hey, what's the Chinese restaraunt? I'm looking for a good recommendation.
