Off to Atlanta on Saturday to celebrate Mike's dad's 65th birthday! What a fun day we had! Filled up with lots of non stop play with the cousins, leaf jumping, hammock swinging, garden looking, book reading, grocery frolicking, happy talking and of course cake eating!
Is it already fall?? Looks like it! Boys playing in the leaves and Ben's cute head popping up from the pile! More laughs... more play! Just love this photo!
Boys will be boys..... dancing, striking a pose?? Not sure what they're doing but they had a blast playing badminton.
Father and son... Ted's birthday gift from everyone was his new grill! And those burgers cooked on his Weber were very delicious! yum!!! Thank you grill masters!
And from the grill masters to the garden girls...Mary Pat and Patty. This tomato plant was sadly falling over because it had sooo many beautiful tomatoes on it, but with another stake in the ground.. it stood up proud and happy! The girls ( Claire, MP, Patty and I) made an adventurous outing while the guys hung out at the house. Destination for the girls... Trader Joe's! Wow, I have never been there and was very excited about going! Have heard lots of buzz about the great food.. good cheap wine, etc. After visiting, it is definitely THE favorite place to buy food! Never knew one could have so much fun in a grocery store! We had a blast looking at everything and Mp, Claire and Patty were veterans so it was fun to see their favorite items in the store.... oh, wish Birmingham would get one. Maybe some day!
And the birthday boy with his candle lit cake glowing! Patty made him delicious homemade carrot cake with cream cheese icing! yum!!
