My boyfriend, Marcos, turned 25 this past weekend! He has never been big on celebrating his birthday all he wanted for his birthday this year was to go out with his close friends and kayak on Town Lake. So we did just that. The weather man had threatened with 40-60% change of rain this weekend but it is Austin and anything can happen. Thankfully the morning we went to the lake it was just cloudy and perfect for kayaking. One of his friends brought her paddle board and Marcos really wanted to give it a try but he was stuck in the kayak with me so I guess that means we need to go back to the lake really soon to try the paddle boards. Hope I don’t fall off. I have been wanting to take my dogs to the lake, hopefully they can stay put and not jump off.
The following day we went out to eat with his parents and more of his friends. The food at Casa Chapala is literally the best Mexican food I have ever tried, with the exception of my mom’s home cooked Mexican food. It’s a must try if you are ever in north Austin. One of Marcos’s friend gave him an Office inspired birthday present, in it was a Dundie Award Trophy. He hates me for not being into the Office as much as he is. I swear he has seen all the Office episodes on Netflix like 10 times.
Overall, Marcos had an amazing time with his friends and family. I’m glad I was able to share another birthday with him. I’m so proud of him. It’s been great seeing him grow up into the man he is today. For those of you that don’t know, Marcos and I started dating when he was 14 and I was 16. It’s been quite the love story.
