Mad Dash Birthday Celebration!
We celebrated my Mom's 75th birthday this weekend! It was a mad dash to West Texas, as I was painting right up until 30 minutes before we headed out the door. It is a long way for a dash, but it was worth it to celebrate with Mom and see my family.
This is the gang. Our Birthday Girl is front and center! My brother, Jeff, to the far left is the 'middle child'. Then me, the oldest. Then my baby brother Greg, the youngest of the boys. My brother Malcolm, who is next in the age line-up after me. And, my baby sister Melanie, who is exactly eight years younger than me; we share the same birthday. Hmmmm.... I never felt like the 'short one.'
We enjoyed lots of fun and great food thanks to Melanie, who outdid herself! and, Jeff who made some wonderful pulled pork!
... not to mention the feast Mom had prepared for our arrival Friday night... shrimp etouffee, ham and a squash dish that was out of this world! As always when at Mom's, I ate way too much! And I loved every bite.
We were able to enjoy a beautiful storm and some much, much needed rain!
Then raced back to start the rat race again!!! And, my time is up! Got to get back at it.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
