A Very Busy Birthday Weekend

Happy Birthday to me and my son!! Yes we share the same birthday. Twenty four years ago was a very good birthday for me!! So it looks like I'm turning 79, but we combined both our candles on one cake--what a blaze! Sure, you can do the math--why do people hate to tell their age?--I never understood that--I'm 55--A good number to remember, (I've been known to lose track of my age) Check out the cake! My son's fiancee made this german chocolate cake with a strawberry cake filling, decked with strawberries and peppermint patty wedges on top, (which were very warm and melty after we blew out the candles--yum!)

A sneak peek at my garden--A have soil, plants and a sprinkler system thanks to my son who is also creating his own garden that I have yet to see.

A street dance performance. She would not let me adjust her skirt, but thankfully she didn't lose it!

A visit with her father's family--spending time with her uncle and aunt--an important connection, she'll learn bits and pieces about her father from his family. And oh man, was that water cold!!

Well, a happy belated birthday to you and your son. Looks like it was a great day. I can relate to the loss of memory when it comes to age. Mine's a bit above yours - I keep thinking I am 59 for some reason and that won't happen for some time yet. I'm only 57.(?) I think? 10-1952.

Thanks Martha--it was a good day!!


Hi Dolores---I know, I do the same thing--I have to do the math to figure out my age and I was doing that back when I was in my twenties!!
