My Birthday Weekend

I had a very special life event this past weekend.  I turned 65 on Sunday.  Our lake family made it very special for me.  Saturday night was another great meal complete with a birthday cake and homemade ice cream (thanks Tracey).  We missed the Haynes and Hancocks though.

Sunday the Hilleys went out on their boat and sent me this very special birthday wish:

Monday was spent with Grandmother who showed us around Sand Mountain.  We saw where Anthony and Joe grew up, then went to Mentone and ate at the Wildflower Cafe (one of the top 10 restaurants in Alabama.  Our waitress did her best Marilyn Monroe impression of Happy Birthday for me.  I loved it!!

We then had a lovely dinner of Stacey’s white beans and pot roast and veggies with Grandmother and Jim and Annette.

It was a fantastic celebration.

Thanks to everyone for making it so special for me!!

I finished this book last night and it was a very fun read. We live close to Nashville (Spring Hill) so I could relate to all of the familiar places mentioned in the book.
