*As I lay in bed, Husband got up and retrieved Bean from her crib and then while Bean and I cuddled and read books, Husband made us challah french toast. Double awesome.
*Bean sang "Happy Birthday dear mama" during breakfast. Close enough.
*We all dressed and, after a brief stop off at my lab (colonies!), we went to meet some friends at the park for playtime and a picnic. I spent a blissful morning running barefoot in the grass with Bean, helping her dig in the sand, and blowing bubbles for her and her little buddy.
*An exhausted Bean took a really good nap, which meant that I could take a really nice nap.
*We ended the day on a high note, with Bean as a willing dinner table participant and probably 45 minutes of cuddly reading before bedtime.
All in all, pretty much exactly how I wanted to spend the day.
