July 18th was a great summer day!We woke up, studied for several hours for our anatomy lab test. Then we took our three-hour lab together (cute, eh?) working on cadavers and studying muscles of the legs.

When we left, we were stopped in the hallway. "Trent!" Two voices called from behind us. It was our student T.A.'s from anatomy lab. They had brought Trent some birthday cake! :) We spend so much time in that lab with the T.A.'s and cadavers that we almost feel like family. Darrin and Paige had remembered Trent's birthday and brought some cake and brownies down the hall. We chatted and enjoyed the chocolatey-goodness! How nice! I wish I'd had a camera. There we sat, eating cake out of the Pyrex containers with lab-goggle indentations on our foreheads and smiles on our faces.
We went home and started to prepare dinner: chicken on the grill with potatoes and corn on the cob. I surprised Trent with a charcoal grill for his birthday. He was a grill master and the whole meal was quite delicious! He joked that he received "big boy" presents this year with the grill and the tool set my parents gave him after Sunday dinner the day before.
|Marinated chicken on the grill. Yum!|
9:30 rolled around and we headed to Megaplex 8 at Thanksgiving Point for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Alex and Kristen, my sisters, joined us for the affair. Good movie and good "closure" according to Trent, who is an avid Harry Potter fan. He cites this day as one of the best birthdays he can remember. I am very grateful for him and the wonderful husband, friend, and person he is. I am constantly amazed at his goodness, patience, and sense of humor through thick and thin. I just adore him.
