a birthday celebration for dad


on sunday we went to my parents' house to celebrate my dad's birthday!

my mom made dinner, and ryan and i made dessert.  for dinner, my mom made greek salad, chicken cacciatore, and pumpkin fettuccine alfredo with spinach.  it was absolutely amazing!  for dessert, ryan and i made one of my dad's favorites: chocolate-raspberry cake.

while we were there, we took a walk down memory lane and looked at a ton of my old school projects from when i was in elementary school and high school.  my parents saved them for all of these years, and they recently found them when they were cleaning their house.  since they take up so much storage space, we all sat down and looked through them before many of them met their fate in the garbage.

we had such a great time eating, reminiscing, and celebrating with my parents yesterday.

happy birthday, dad!
love, laurie

Thanks for making dad's birthday a great one. The cake was amazing (as always). It was bittersweet looking at all of those projects, where has the time gone.

Many thanks to "The Birds." Hope all is well for you and your family. These years keep advancing on me, but luckily I don't feel my age (not yet, at least!). Take care, Ernie
