Emily at my birthday celebration
Last Saturday was my birthday. I'm a strange person and I've always liked my birthday, but I also get really sad if my birthday isn't acknowledged.

After been so sick over Christmas and at the beginning of this year, I asked my friends to plan a surprise for my birthday. Since my birthday was on a Saturday, Todd was at work most of the day because of the way his work schedule is.

So my best friend told me to meet me at her house at 9:30, and I was to follow her to where the birthday surprise was going to be at.

We ventured to downtown Hendersonville where we were a little afraid we weren't going to find parking because of a St. Patrick's Day celebration that was going on, but we did and we headed to the surprise.

Where we went is this place called Hands On that I had been wanting to take Emmy to for a while. It's a play place that has all these neat things like a mock grocery store, a mock post office, a slide, a room where you can paint and play with clay, a baby room filled with baby dolls, a mock bakery and more.

Outside of the place, my friends were waiting with party hats and had a card made for me (it was a Star Wars card!). We all took our party hats off once we got inside, but Emily insisted on keeping it on the entire time we were playing.

After we were done playing, we went to a nearby place called 'Mike's on Main' for lunch. It was very yummy and it was nice to hang out with my friends.

Then Emily and I headed home for a nap since we were both pretty tired. After we got up, we waited for Todd to come home so we could go out to dinner. I had made reservations earlier in the day for this great hibachi place in Asheville.

Dinner was great, and really filling. Plus I opted to get the birthday song and cheesecake, which I had to have Todd finish. It was a lot of fun.

It was a really nice birthday!
