On February 8 Mr. Barela celebrated his 31st birthday. We had a great weekend celebrating his special day. We had babysitters for Saturday night and we hit our town of Chico in style. We went to Brian’s favorite local restaurant, 5th Street Steakhouse, and then to see Slumdog Millionaire. The dinner was great as it always is there and the movie was excellent as well. We both really really liked it. A must see in my opinion. The best part of the night though was just being with Brian and the uninterrupted conversation. We got more talking in that night than we have in the past 2 weeks. I love hearing what he has been thinking about, what he is learning, his random thoughts throughout the days. Just to connect on a deeper level than “Hey, how was your day?” or “Will you pick up that sippy cup?” is so very much needed and valued. Here are some pics from the weekend. Happy Birthday Brian!
