Oh my, what a birthday! My mom called early this morning to see if we might be coming to visit them today. I wasn’t sure, but after talking to Mark, we decided that would be fun. We left home this morning and were on our way.
When we arrived at my parents’ home, we sat and talked in the back yard for a long time. It is always so fun to walk around the yard as there is always something in bloom. We had fun talking until it was time to head to the Rod and Gun Club for dinner. Yay! My birthday was on a Friday this year, so that meant we could enjoy a fish fry!
As always, dinner at the Rod and Gun Club was outstanding! We have never been disappointed by their food or service! After dinner, my brother, Randy, rode home with Mark and the kids. I went with my parents. We stopped at Coldstone Creamery where my parents told me to pick out an ice cream cake! I picked a Cookie Dough Delirium Cake.
Mom, Dad, and I went home and we waited for over an hour before Mark, Randy, and the kids finally got home. Randy had bought a small screenroom so I thought we should eat outside in the screenroom. After dinner, Mark and the kids had me open gifts they bought me at the dollar store. By this time, things were getting pretty silly! Mark told me about a gift he wanted to get me but he wants me to pick out what I want.
As we sat at the table, I removed my temporary tooth because, well, the thing just outright drives me buggy! This sent my mother into waves of laughter, which in turn made me nearly crack, laughing hysterically. Everyone else thought my mom and I were crazy, but oh, what fun we had laughing! After the ice cream, I began to feel chilly, so I thought maybe the tissue paper from my gift bag might insulate me, taking away the chill…..
Michelle really got into the action, stuffing tissue paper inside my sleeves and fashioning a hood for me! The bright yellow thing in my hand is a duck keyring. It has a push button on it that when activated, makes the little duck cast a bright light and it “quaxks”! It is so cute.
We didn’t leave until after 10pm. I am bloging remotely, via the wee netbook. What a long and terrific day!
