Four Sunday Celebrations!

In the last month, there have been FOUR birthdays in our family. We did not get to celebrate any, because our son's family was sick with flu, mono, strep, and pink eye one after the other. It is only now that everyone is healthy. So today was the day to celebrate all FOUR birthdays! We went to a restaurant that had a fire pit and tables out front. We chose to eat inside.

They had special dishes for St. Patrick's Day! I got Mulligan Stew.

Phil got Bangers & Mash.

Two of the girls wanted Nachos.

Back home, Jazz opened her presents. She is six now.


Our daughter-in-law opening her present.

Anne Marie helping Phil with a tech problem.

And here we are with the granddaughters as they leave at almost 11:00 P.M.! What were the gifts? My next post will show you. Some of them were VERY weird and strange!

“The first fact about the celebration of birthdays is that it is a good way of affirming defiantly, and even flamboyantly, that it is a good thing to be alive.”
~G.K. Chesterton

Oh what wonderful pictures, Ginny. I'm glad you all got to be together and what a better occasion than celebrating birthdays! Lots of folks have been sick this winter and I am thoroughly amazed and surprised I haven't been. Of course I probably shouldn't talk too loud, should I?!! *haha* Love, Andrea xoxo

What would we do without our Grands rescuing us with all of our digital problems?
I know I would be sunk.
sorry everyone was sick but that made for a spectacular celebration for all four.
Enjoy your day.

What a great day for celebrating. A wonderful picture of you and Phil with the girls. They are growing up! Glad they are all well now...there have been several bad bugs this year. The food looked so tasty!

I was impressed by the fire pit photo and cannot imagine eating around it. Glad you opted for indoors. Family time with loved ones is always special. I am the senior techy for the seniors in my family. My grand kids are under three and my kids are usually too busy so I have to study and learn.YouTube is very helpful. I look forward to reading about gifts.
