Well rested and ready to play!
Mom and I had on similar dresses
Three layers of cake lovers (plus Smotey) Larbs arrived by airplane in the middle of cake eating dessert! Four layers of family.
We met a few of Gram’s friends for cocktails at the bistro (pronounced “bis-tro” not “bees-tro”!)
Manhattan for me (!!)
Whiskey Sour for Gram
And bar snacks for us all!
After some nice conversation, we moseyed over to the grill for dinner. I love eating in the grill because it’s a big buffet (a service offered to the residents of Gram’s building). I like to build my meal to taste!
I always start with a big salad –
Topped with romaine, veggies, fruit, bleu cheese and cranberries
I didn’t plan on having wine with dinner, but I ended up sharing a glass with mom –
Off the hot buffet, I chose a fish (I’m not sure what kind) and lots of veggies
I shared my fish with Matt because one of Gram’s friends found me a really good trout that was hiding behind the counter! A Steelhead trout, I believe? It was great! Like salmon!
Guess who is turning 29 again on Sunday!? MOM!!!
Happy Birthday To You!
Like a good girl, I ate all of my icing. But I left most of the cake part because cake is just a means to serve icing anyways.
Side of decaf!
After dinner we went up to Gram’s apartment and looked at old photos. This one we think was taking in 1875! That’s Gram’s Gram on the far left!
And her family in their bathing suits, many ages ago -
Matt and I are back at our hotel getting some rest before a fun day of shopping, bread eating and parties tomorrow! Wheee!
