Birthday Dinners and More


Last night Rebekah and Zach surprised us with a dinner at Fogo de Chao. This was such a wonderful experience. I am not nutty over  lamb but if I could have stuffed the bone to my lamb chop in my purse, I may have used it as a baby uses a teething ring! It was the most incredible lamb chop in the history of lamb chops. Nick came to dinner with us and my junk food junkie son is a lamb connoisseur! I had to join him in having one of these delightful chops. The whole evening was terrific and we were so busy eating we never stopped to take photos. I was unable to borrow any on line pohots due to copyright enfringement. I have never been a thief and I suppose we will have to have a second visit so we can have our own photos to share. Shea Shea is also a connoisseur of fine dining. She is able to eat for free due to her age and let me tell you, the girl loves good food. She eats more than her five year old brother.  We have been to the Texas de Brazil several times and both places are similar. Lots of different choices on their salad bars and most of the food they serve is quite similar. If you have not tried one of these fine food establishments, I would highly recommend them.

My girl the Instagram Queen. Colton holds the Instagram King title with his friend Dani from California. These two young men have been buddies since July 2019 ans have racked up over 584 consecutive Instagram posts. Noelle gave us fashionable "Dolly Parton hair do's".

Noelle and Roger treated us to breakfast at the Blue Bird Cafe. She snapped this sweet photo of Colton with Grandfather. Avery will frame this for his desk at work.

A little phamily snapshot. Jacey's mom had the kiddos so these kids were flying solo today. She was headed to work and he was headed home to sleep so he could work the late shift as a deliveryman to many establishments. Very proud that he completed trucking school. Happy to see them earning a good wage  to care for their little phamily.

Pie Fest today and Noelle and Roger gave her dad a beautiful hoodie with the Colorado Rockies logo. Avery has always wanted a California Angel's baseball hat so Jeremy has one coming to him. Dinner, breakfast, gifts, Avery feels so blessed for all the attention he had for his birthday. He also celebrated 30 years at his job and they gave him a cupcake and champagne party. He does not induldge in the champagne so he brought his bottle home for me. He also giftded me:

We had an excellent celebration. Now to get some rest and sleep late tomorrow and Monday as he has the day off. Very thankful for all the beautiful blessings surrounding us in people and love everywhere in the air. Have a wonderfulr est and hoping to see you tomorrow.

It sounds wonderful! We haven't seen lamb in any grocery store in years.

Wow. I love how your phamily shows their love with good food! My parents (and ex, too) loved lamb chops; I never developed a taste for it -- but used to steal others' mint jelly ... lol.
Now I'm off to Google these restaurants and see if either one exists here in Alabama.
Have a super SONday!

Unfortunately, we don't have those restaurants here in Massachusetts. We have Applebees and Olive Garden though. :) XO
