The Fiftieth Birthday… goes on and on…
It was a wonderful day! In the first photo, I was having a cup of coffee at the Useless Bay Coffee company! Yes! Wes took me and his dear mother on the ferry to Langley where we enjoyed a mocha and a ginger-pear scone! It was perfect and that mocha was the *best* I’ve ever had! ;o)
Then, the next photo is the first of a few birthday desserts! This is a torte that Kathryn made — with Irish Creme Mousse and Ganache fillings. It was so yummy!!
I have been saying that had I known 50 would be so sweet, I would have wished to get here sooner!!
On the morning of my 50th birthday, our daughters, Kathryn & Hannah (with their helpers Naomi & Amelia) prepared a lovely tea party for me and my mother and step father, and my mother in law. It was really a sweet day! Then in the evening, I was treated to dessert at the Cabbage Patch restaurant in Snohomish.
Kathryn arranged for me to have an scenic airplane ride! I’d never been up in a small plane before!!
I was laughing soo much! I *always* laugh when I am nervous or excited about something!!
It was truly amazing to me how effortlessly we just flew over so many beautiful places in such a short time!
We flew around Mt. Pilchuck — covered in snow! It will be a long time before I will be able to go back up to the top of that mountain since it was totally white with snow — but I will climb that mountain again… just not as soon as I had hoped!!
I received such beautiful flowers!! Tulips from Kathryn were just exquisite — for the tea party. And then, this elegant bouquet (above) was delivered to me the day before my birthday… from my dear friend, Kelli who lives in Idaho! I was absolutely delighted to receive this special gift!! Isn’t it lovely!?! And this one (below) was a gift from Daniel and Tara… And the peach roses from Nancy… I love them so much — they’re the most delightful thing to wake up and see each morning!!
I think my lighting was pretty ‘off’ when I was taking these photos! Ooops!
…and that’s not all!! There’s more to tell! We still had one more family birthday party yesterday!!
Can it be?
–Every– day of a person’s life after *50* is a c-e-l-e-b-r-a-t-i-o-n?!?
♥ I think so!! ♥
