I’m not a huge fan of my own birthdays, but this one was purdy good. It started with breakfast and presents in bed. Not a bad way to start anything, right?
Since my beloved chocolate Hostess Donettes are no longer, the whole family has been taste testing every competitor we can find. (Ah such a taxing task...) The closest we’ve found so far are the Little Debbie ones, which were served up this morn with strawberries and caffeine. Excellent:
TubaDad surprised me with a nifty 24-85mm lens. Cool. It’s a good, lightweight daily lens that gives a little zoom and is easier to lug around than my 28-300 (that one gets some gorgeous shots but makes the camera so heavy that I literally get a blister, which I guess he’s heard me yip about a few times now). Took a few test shots in bed to try it out today. I like it!
Ree and her bestest stuffed animal friend, Floppy:
Ro reading a new book that arrived from Amazon yesterday. These girls sure do love to read:
Are you done yet, sister...?:
Dum de dum...:
After breakfast I went for a massage – fabulous. I think this is my new birthday tradition.
Went for a lunchtime walk and had a picnic lunch that Miss Ree packed. Little bitty was quite proud of that lunch:
Friends from the North please look away, you don’t want to see this. It was an absolutely gorgeous day. Not a cloud in the sky:
No they don’t walk. Ever. And quite often they skip. Quite vigorously:
Yes I am tired. And much slower than they.
Rested up after our walk, built up our appetites again (yes birthdays ARE all about the food around here) and headed out for a family dinner with Wela and BobBob at a local fondue restaurant. The girls humored me and put on some darker clothing in expectation of the chocolate course.
It was good. And I’m so full I may never eat again. Oy. (Well except there are a few remaining chocolate donuts that someone is going to have to finish off tomorrow morning...)
