Mom's birthday has come and gone without us posting anything about it, but let the records show that we did see her briefly yesterday to wish her a happy birthday. :)
She was busy, busy, busy yesterday. She spent a big chunk of the day (8:00 to 3:30) doing greyhound-related stuff with her aunt: first the morning walk and then the annual Greyhound Spring Fling. Then she went to the new Star Trek movie, Into Darkness, with her mom. After that it was time for supper, presents, and cake (well, pie, actually. Dutch apple with whipped cream, to be more specific).
What's awesome about Mom's birthday is that we often get stuff too! This year was no exception. Unfortunately, by the time all that was done, it was after 9:30, and she was too tired to do anything with us other than show us the new doll clothes she received. We will take pictures when we try them on so that we can make a post about it later.
The weather yesterday was summer-like: high around 80 degrees, lots of sun, fluffy clouds. Luckily, there was also a cool breeze at times to keep the heat from being intolerable. What a beautiful day!
No word yet as to whether she's going to spend real $ on HI2 or if we'll be stuck paying exorbitant amounts of virtual $ to reinstate our subscription... We'll keep our fingers crossed.
Anyway, if you're reading this, Mom, thank you for treasuring us long past the age when it is "cool" to have dolls. You will always be a kid at heart no matter how old you get, and we love you for that. <3 <3 <3 <3 Have a great year!
