Happy Birthday Gary!

It's been a busy weekend so far.  
Rissie spent the night on Friday.

And it was Barbies, bubbles, and faerie tales....

And a special treasure chest project with Pop Pop.

Then we had a table for 12 reserved at Warners German Restaurant.

To Celebrate Gary's 57th birthday which is today.

He didn't suspect that I ordered one of these scrumptious bee sting cakes (below) to be sent to our table at the conclusion of our meal.

Did you know that President John F. Kennedy used to order dozens of these cakes from this very restaurant to be flown to the White House for special dinners there?  At least...  that's what I was told.

Happy Birthday Gary!  It's your day.  


  1. Ooooh, the cake looks lushious! Where exactly is this resturant? Has it been there a long time? May be one we use to go to, sure sounds familier. Looks to be good times with Risie, hehe. Happy Birthday Gary!

  2. Looks like a great celebration! The cake looks magnificent!

  9. Gary, my MAN!!! Happy Birthday!!! When are you going to start a blog? You know what they say, couples who blog together, clog together, or some such thing! What on earth is a bee sting cake?? The picture of Gary and Rissie is wonderful, she looks so outrageously happy!!! some of these pictures of Rissie, this is the first time I get a glimpse of what she might look like when she grows up, do you get a sense of that, Bobbi? The first picture and the one with Gary, squint your eyes....she looks rather grown up in these and I see a beautiful woman. Is this her room at your house, she has her own room there? Wish I had one for Anne!!! Our other two rooms are turned into an office and a closet.
