My Birthday

Several days ago my family helped me celebrate my birthday.  It was a delightful day!  Julie did a super job of planning, preparing, and serving a Mexican fiesta.  The other children helped her, and everything was outstanding!

 The Happy Birthday banner--in Spanish.

 My favorite drink with cute decorations.

 Thoughtful, pretty handmade gifts from Julie

My new running shoes!

I began my day with an 8 mile run with Jimmy.  Then we rested while the kids prepared the birthday lunch.  Later that day we saw the movie Planes, and then we went out to Ichiban (Japanese restaurant) for supper.

It was a wonderful day, and I am so grateful for my wonderful family.
