Rollin's 25th Birthday

Yesterday we celebrated Rollin's 25th birthday. I took the day off and we relaxed.

We slept in and then started our morning off with a nice run.

Then Rollin made eggs benedict for breakfast.

I hid little Snicker's bars all over the apartment (they are his favorite candy) and after breakfast Rollin searched for all of them.

Most of the afternoon we just relaxed. It was a beautiful day so I sat out in the sun.

Then we went out on our balcony and played Rummikub!

We went to Chuy's for an early dinner.

After dinner we stopped at Central Park and hung out.

Then we came home and had ICE CREAM!

And Rollin's present arrived just in time....his birthday present was from not only me, but his close family members on his side and my side of our family!! THANK YOU!! Rollin was super surprised, and so excited for his gift!

With his diploma in the frame!


  1. oh my goodness! Kyle & I play rummikub TOO. We should get together and play.

    also, it is awesome you were able to be off for his birthday! how fun. :)

  2. for sure!! we love rummikub! also play qwirkle a lot too. have you heard of that game? it would be a great investment :):)

    it was nice having the day off, but being away from my students is almost too stressful because i have to come back the next day and do damage control!

  3. You pulled off the big surprise, Rach! yaaa! It looks great! Look forward to seeing it when we come in a couple of weeks!

    It sounds like you both had a great day. So glad!
