For my birthday, Colin planned a fun afternoon at the Fullerton Arboretum and then a cookout at a nearby park.
He worked really hard the night before getting veggies and chicken marinated for skewers.
And he even made me a chocolate cake! I was very impressed.
The Fullerton Arboretum is really great - it's like a mini Huntington Gardens that's much closer to our house (and it operates by donations at the gate, so it's much cheaper).
Colin thought this huge plant was picture worthy.
I really enjoyed having a little gathering of friends together and was very impressed by Colin's effort to get all the food together! He made loads and we had leftovers for a while.
My friend Sinae posted some more pics on Facebook, and hers are much more beautiful, so you should check those out too.
