birthday celebrations

on sunday, we got together with our families to celebrate my mom's birthday.  we went out to a seafood restaurant that we have never been to before, and it was great.  after dinner, we went back to ryan's parents' house for dessert and presents.

^everything was so good.  ryan had an ocean combo of shrimp, scallops, and a crab cake.  i had coffee/chili encrusted swordfish.  yum!^
^for dessert, we made chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting.  some were topped with sprinkles and some were topped with coconut (my mom's favorite)!^
^when it came time to open presents, pepper just couldn't resist "helping" my mom!^
happy birthday, mama!
love, laurie

I like that picture of Don, Pam and Ryan with the lighthouse in the back. Quite appropriate since Pam likes lighthouses. Delicious meal, definitely want to go back again. I love the help with my presents. could not have done it without her help.
