Did Someone Say Cake?!

The Birthday Boy

Earlier this week – well, Monday to be specific – we celebrated my dad’s birthday out at my older brother’s house.

My youngest nephew. Colin, made ribs — and, oddly enough I didn’t take many/any pictures of the deliciousness!! However, I did manage to get a shot of my Phred enjoying a bit of smokey BBQ goodness!!

Phred does not often have such meaty goodness in his face!

And, of course there was cake. If you don’t know yet, I have to say that I. LOVE. CAKE. Preferably (pay attention if you want to stalk/woo me with cakey goodness!!) white cake with buttercream frosting. I’m really not a huge fan of chocolate cake. And if you REALLY want to impress me, find a place that makes those old very sugar-y not quite hard but a little crunchy frosting flowers.

But I digress.

We had birthday cake.

Cake with candle holes 🙂

And we also had candles.

Miscellaneous candles

And at one point the candles were on the cake AND lit! But of course, no picture again!

My sister also brought my dad a Birthday Dutch Apple Pie – which is still in the refrigerator at his house!!

After dinner we watched a little TV and then my brother’s deer feeder went off and the dogs were brought in! And the deer showed up.

Lots of them!

And one of them was non-too pleased about having me taking pictures of his family!!

All in all it was a pretty great day! It’s always nice to spend time with family!

Hope your enjoying your week — and we’re on the downhill slope to the weekend!!! 

 

 

 

Happy Birthday Tug!

30 Aug

On this day in 1944, Tug McGraw was born in Martinez California.

So, today might be a good day to head on over to my page and make a little donation in his honor! The Marine Corps Marathon is getting closer every day and I’m barely half-way to my goal! So help a girl out and give a little!!

Thanks! And have a Super Saturday!

“Ya Gotta Believe” – The Tug McGraw Foundation was established in 2003 to enhance the quality of life of children and adults with brain tumors and in 2009 expanded programs to include posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). TMF collaborates and partners with other organizations so that we can accelerate new treatments and cures to improve quality of life in areas of physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual impact of those debilitating conditions.

My mom when I was older than 5 🙂 This was when we were on a cruise about 10 years ago.

I’ve said it before and I know I’ll say it a million times again — I miss her every single day

And PS…that black bag my mom is holding on to for me? I still use it!! 🙂

Happy Birthday!!

raindrops

This is kind of what it looked like outside yesterday morning. Which made me happy that we went to the beach the day before 🙂

Personally, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a day filled with rain and thunder and lightning but I know a lot of people aren’t thrilled. And the dogs were really not impressed

But the really big news is that yesterday we celebrated my nephew’s birthday — I can’t believe he’s 14 already!! I remember the day he was born!

Conor 2 months

Technically, he’s 2 months old here…

Cute huh?! Now he’s kind of a sullen teenager, but I think that’s just an act! He’s a good kid. Smart as heck! Going to be working on his Eagle Scout project soon and plans to go to the Air Force Academy!  Maybe he’s so smart because he was trained, um, I mean, raised right?

Time Out!

That look still shows up fairly often!!

Seriously though, he’s a good kid — and I’m not biased at all!!
