I love planning Bryan’s birthday because it’s in August and we can always do something fun and outdoors. I have no doubt our friends think we are crazy to keep celebrating birthdays but I do not plan on stopping. If you sass me, I’ll just take you off the guest list.
So this year we had it a bit belated because this past weekend was the one where people were in town (no small feat in August in EUROPE). I decided to also combine it with his Wet the Baby’s Head- I think it’s some kind of English tradition where you take a man out drinking after he’s had a baby. Wonder how women got shafted on that one?
Saturday we went lawn bowling in Hyde Park and scored the most beautiful day. Lawn bowling is from the bocce/petanque boules sport family but with an English imprint- mainly in the form of balls that don’t roll straight and the grass. The English and their grass. We followed it with an American bbq dinner out. Because, well, we’re American.
