There is no way that I can be the mother of someone who is 40 but I guess it just happened while I was not looking. The whole family went out to the Fish Market in Palo Alto. I got to sit next to the birthday boy. I forgot to take pictures but here’s one that I posted on Facebook on the day. It is from when he was 10 months old. He looks a little concerned!
John and I decided to get away from all the rain in California by going to Utah where mostly it rained and was cold. Oh well, it was a nice break and we met with our contractor to work out the details of the bathroom renovation. Mostly, though, we stayed inside and cooked, or did puzzles, although we did manage to play tennis on a couple of days when the temperature got almost all the way to 50F.
Pictures are mostly of various dinners we made.
Here are a few more pictures which are mostly not about food.
Today is Sam’s birthday! Since he will be having a large children’s party on the Saturday after his birthday and we will be in St. George, Sarah, John and I go over to Palo Alto for a special family party with gifts, cake, and pizza! The biggest present hit is an ant farm given to him by his Auntie Leigh. We have brought some gifts and cards along with the dinner and cake. Happy Eighth Birthday, Sam!
We are such loyal fans of Hookslide. Today they are singing at Thornton Junior High School in Fremont for the League of Volunteers. We are among the youngest in the audience. They sing a variety of hard rocking songs and ballads. The crowd which is a little smaller than usual due to the rainy weather is appreciative. We, of course, think that they are great.
