This year’s birthday was a memorable one.
Steve planned to drop off the kids at my parents and take me out to dinner.
Jose O’Sheas.
That has always been one of my favorite restaurants!
But Lakewood?  We never go to Lakewood.

It turned out that we were heading to Bear Valley Church, Shawnie’s church.
The kids, my parents, and Shawnie would join us to watch Annie.
It wasn’t a Broadway production, but it was good.
And I was surprised!!!

Then yesterday, I went to Shawnie’s.
I love hanging out with that girl!
She gave me a massage and we made salmon and salad.

I’m so thankful for my family.
Thankful for their thoughtfulness.
What a great weekend.
And a fabulous birthday that I won’t soon forget.

Now, it’s Monday, and back to the grind.
I’m thinking I might need an extra cup of coffee!
