Where Did The Weekend Go?

We celebrated Husband's birthday early at
a local restaurant since it was a big one for him. 
For those of you who do not know, my husband had a bone
marrow transplant 2 1/2 years ago and his donor and savior
is his brother ( in the hat)

This is the birthday boy with his baby sister.
We even had super cool T shirts that his brother made up.
(That cake is solid ice cream from a local shop soooo good)

The next morning we called a close friend and off we went
for our maiden voyage of the year.

We are looking forward to an amazing summer of
paddling all the lakes in the area.

Since we worked up a thirst and hunger off to the local
beach bar. (on a lake)  This i drink is so good and a bit sinful, with some fried clams to top it off just perfect.

I also had my guild meeting and we had a class
on braiding. I have a whole new appreciation 
for people who braid (I see a corner I have to tweak a bit).
 I do love the look, and I hope to braid again.
If you didn't start out the day with a smile, it's not to late to 
start practicing tomorrow.

Happy Birthday to your hubby and a big hug to his hero brother! The lake looks like the place to be and throw in the delish's a Summer party! The rug is adorable. I can't imagine making a whole braided rug! Nice job!

Happy Birthday Dave! I bet he loved his surprise visit from his brother. I like the look of that braiding too. Good work

Happy Belated Birthday to your husband Dave. I'm so happy that you are all able to celebrate in style. Make it a long celebration...
Have loads of memorable fun. It's going to be a wonderful summer on the water...
I'd love a piece of that ice cream cake, please and thank you.

Hugs :)

What a fun way to spend his birthday. We got out today too, so nice to be on the water again. Braiding is fun, just getting used to the tension so you don't braid too loose or tight.

I know what you mean....they go by so fast. Looks like Dave's birthday was a big hit...leave it to Dennis to come with shirts. That's great. Gotta have that recipe for the watermelon. I love the braiding on that rug. Looks great and the color choice is real nice.

Wonderful celebration all the more special with his brother and family. They lake looks peaceful. I always loved being near water but now we are not so close. Warm Blessings! Amy

Wonderful Birthday celebration, go Dave!!!! Looks so beautiful on the water, fun the rug, the braiding is great, Francine.

Saundra said...

A blessed birthday and healthier too. Looks like it was a wonderful day. Braiding an edge for a rug is something I'd like to try one day but you can bet it will be on the smallish size.


Nellie said...

When there is a lot going on, time seems to fly by! Happy birthday to your husband! Quite a celebration!

Judy said...

Oh--David looks wonderful!!! Has it been that long since his transplant? Seems only yesterday we were praying for his recovery. YAY David!!!

Hope you guys have a awesome week. Weekends to end too soon.
