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!!  ♥
