Birthday Road Trip!

A Lobster Fairy!

We're  leaving today to drive to our daughter's home in  Maine to celebrate our oldest grandson's 17th birthday, and mine, this weekend. It's become a family tradition to  celebrate our mutual birthday whenever we can. We were born on exactly the same day, and Conner was the absolute best Birthday gift ever!

There's something about being around teenagers that I find particularly energizing, and our daughter's home is filled with joy, love, three teenagers and their assorted friends. It'll be a busy and fun weekend.

After all of the weekend's excitement, we'll head to  Cape Cod for a few days of rest and relaxation. Since Inet service will be hit or miss, I won't be posting and my Etsy shop will be closed until we return on or about  October 3rd.  However, I will definitely try to make some long-overdue blog visits ( when I have service). After all, I  can't break away from The Matrix completely!

May all of your wishes come true!

I hope I'm not too late to wish you the happiest of birthdays. Enjoy your time with the teens, then the relaxing time in Cape Cod. Sounds like a fairy tale weekend to me. Possibly to go along with that lobster! Again, happy birthday, dear friend.

Oh Terri That sound's wonderful! First of all happy Birthday! to you and your grandson. How faabulous to be able to share that. Then a few days of beauty at Cape Cod how lucky you are! Family, food, and good times sounds like a recipe for some great memories.

Best wishes always - Marilyn xxoo

I really enjoyed the video..what a great idea to put it into slides instead of words. I particularly liked the murals on the buildings. Very wonderful. Happy birthday again. Glad you had such a great time off.
