Happy Birthday to You

Patrick's mom's birthday was this past week. We had Glee and Bill over for a birthday dinner celebration. She is a lovely 21 again!! Here Glee is with Baby Dane.
Darleen and Ryan brought the kids. I am so glad that Darleen is as interested in taking pictures as I am! And doesn't she look beautiful!!
Rylee, what do you have?? I am going to tell Nana Jill what I caught you with!!
Here is the birthday girl with Grandpa bill and Miss Rylee (this time without her beverage bottle!!)
Rylee has the most soulful eyes.
Don't ask me what is going on here, but I just love this picture of Dane!
Just look at these two. I bet you will have many nights like this, just laying around talking about the ways of the world.

Just an afternoon in Pasadena

A couple weekends ago, Ching, Kari and I meet up in Pasadena for brunch. We ate at Elements kitchen. I had the Mac & Cheese with Lobster, Wild Mushrooms & Truffles! It was really rich and creamy!! We walked around old town Pasadena, in and out of shops. this picture was taken inside The Container store. We were all remarking on how comfortable the bungee chairs were to sit in. How they just mold to your . . . umm . . . bottom!!

It was great spending the day with you ladies! Can't wait to do it again!!
