Birthday Bliss

When we left off on the birthday post, we had just been to Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, NJ, home of TLC's reality tv program Cake Boss. Five scrumptious looking cupcakes had been selected for dessert and we headed back to NY for lunch.

Welcome to Holland! (Tunnel, that is)

Hello pretty lady!

Now we're getting close.

Destination: Nathan's Famous at Coney Island, home of the 4th of July hot dog eating contest!

Chili cheese and bacon cheese dogs, bladder bursting sized Coors Light, fries, a pretzel, and cupcakes. That's what I'm talking about!
Joy!

Oh baby. In this heat, this self proclaimed beer snob wouldn't have wanted anything else. A micro brew or something heavier just wouldn't do.

And now, the moment we have all been waiting for. Are they as good as they look?

You better believe it!

I wish I could say that in that despite the intense heat and direct sun and after stuffing myself silly that I rode Coney Island's famous roller coaster the Cyclone as I had planned. Sadly, my stomach demanded that I save it for another day. However, Mark and Alexander rode the Tickler and loved every second of it.
I was treated with a fabulous summer thunderstorm on the drive home and the icing on the (cup)cake? Well, as Mark said, not many people get a rainbow on their birthday.

Aren't you just adorable in your new super cool life?!? I suppose there are things in your new world that C-U didn't offer. :o)

Very cool birthday, all around. So glad you got to enjoy it. You deserve it!!!

Nothing like a Nathan's hot dog. But I just want to make sure you know that there we NEVER put ketchup on a Nathan hot dog. In NY we put mustard on our hot dogs. Only tourists use ketchup. ;)

And I'm glad you had a wonderful birthday.

Thanks RK. Come see us and we'll explore together.

Mustard only. Got it! It's kind of like embracing the Philly steaks with onions and cheese wiz. mmm I think I may have gone a bit over board with the chili cheese dog and beer and fries and cupcakes during an immense friggin heat. Ahh but the belly ache was worth it. Thanks for commenting and I look forward to reading about Beth going to college (if she'll let you post about it anyway).
