The kids just couldn't wait for him to wake up. For the last several weeks Carl has had to travel to company headquarters for work. It's usually only overnight, but we're used to having him here- working remotely from home. We've been missing him.
Then it was off to the country club for breakfast.
Too bad we couldn't go out and play, it was a gorgeous day. (We had all the monkies with us, and I wouldn't dream of taking them out on the course yet. There are rules, and ettiquette, and collared shirts and stuff.)
Ian is just dying to drive the cart. That'll be the day!
In our family, when it's your birthday you get to pick whatever you want for dinner. So of course meat was on the menu tonight in the form of grilled flank steak. Also strawberry lemonade...
and chocolate peanut butter squares. (I'm warning you not to make them-- dangerously good!)
Then we inaugurated the new patio with a little fire.
It was a perfect day to celebrate another great year. Sure do love that guy. (Thanks for the rabbit ears Laurel)
Happy Birthday Carl! Thirty-eight looks good on you.
