Mr. Robinson's 24th Birthday Feast Week!

So last year my then-fiance turned 23.  I thought I was being clever by giving him lingerie, for me, that he had to hold on to until the honeymoon.  Wrong.  He hated it.  So I tried extra hard to make up for my birthday-fail from last year.  This post is pretty late...his birthday was May 23...but better late than never.  :)  My plan for over-compensation was to plan a week-long feast featuring all of his favorite foods AND shower him with gifts each day.  Since his parents weren't able to come up on his actual birthday, they came up for the weekend of May 11th and stayed the night with us for the first time!  =)  We went and had lunch at a water-front restaurant in town and came home for some cupcakes I made.  Mr. Robinson's parents gave him a weed-eater and I gave him swimming trunks.  :)

Here are some pictures from his Birthday-Week-Extravaganza!

His "go-to-hell" hat

Homemade Pizza for the FEAST!

He got excited about getting The Franchise.  =)  And the pizza was pretty great.  

The Grill-Master & His Apron and Tools 
Birthday Cake!  My first layer-cake, no less.  :) 

New Shades :)

My First attempt at Homemade Fries for the FEAST
Homemade Burgers & Buns for the FEAST!  =)  

I think we all made up for last year.  =)  His birthday gifts included a weed-eater, a watch, a "go-to-hell" hat, season one of The Franchise, a new grill, a Giant's apron (for grilling), two pairs of swimming trunks, a pair of shorts, a SPF long-sleeved t-shirt (because he burns very easily in the sun & we are going to Mexico in July!), we both bought some cheap shades at Walgreens, and a pair of black dress shoes.  We also hate his favorite foods all, hot dogs, hamburgers, spicy chicken nuggets, etc.  It was a great week & I hope he felt like a king when it was all over.  :)
