Happy Birthday

Today would have been my mother-in-law’s 61st birthday. MyBetterHalf and MrCuddles are in Spokane with family. (MrC was jumping with joy that he got to finally ride in the white car on his trip to Spokane.)

Me, MrGrunty and MsSqueaky had a slumber party last night.

This morning, chocolate chip pancakes, MsS did the flipping, MrG did the add-chocolate-chips-ing. Then we prepped snack packs for MrG’s basketball team, and cleaned a bit before off to the game.

They had friends visit. MsS and her friend played with dolls and crafts. MrG and his friend played catch and tackle football on the mattresses. Then we went to the park. The girls were on swings, the boys playing catch with baseball. Then a walk in the woods…




…it was a nice walk. Three pairs of shoes got wet, and only one boy fell out of a tree. Back home, we had ice-cream, and too soon their friends left.

We went to a new burger place for dinner, then to buy some flowers. We built a fire at the beach, sang “happy birthday” to grandma, and each put a flower in the Sound for her.
