I Went to Paris for My Birthday!

Paris Ontario, that is. I am very thankful for the wonderful partner that God has blessed me with! Last weekend she treated me to a wonderful day full of family time, relaxation and great food - she knows how to win me over!

It was raining, but that didn't deter Kristin from buying me delicious breakfast tacos from one of my favorite Hamilton food trucks, The Dirty South!

Mmmmm.... these little tacos were amazing - egg, sausage (other other two had bacon), seasoned pieces of tater tots, salsa, sour cream, cheese and arugula. What a way to start the day!

The rest of the day was spent with family and playing with the kids, although I did get some time to put my feet up to watch the Hamilton Tiger-Cats win their last game at Ivor Wynne Stadium before heading out for supper.

To Paris (Ontario) we went, for a delicious BBQ supper at Camp31! This place is a little restaurant for big appetites. It's out of the way, but worth the trip!

It's hard not to like a meal like this! With full tummies and lots of leftovers we enjoyed a movie (a rare treat!) while Grandma and Grandpa Lucas took care of the wee three.

I am very blessed with a wonderful wife who knows how to show a guy a good time, and three kids who are a daily reminder of God's goodness. James Dobson once said, "Don't marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can't live without." I'm glad I did just that. Thanks, honey, for a wonderful birthday!
