30 Years Ago Today.......

30 years ago today........this sweet girl came into our lives and hearts, and changed our world forever.  Today I met up with her at her "Happy Place" and we lunched in the Nordstrom Cafe.    Here she comes, and I think she spotted the balloons.
Drew and Diana joined us too.  And of course, our grandgirls, Hannah and Claire were with us.
We had a delicious lunch!  At Nordstrom Cafe, we always do!
Our waiter took this of all of us.  Hannah and Claire were exceptionally good, and minded their manners like perfect little ladies!   Hannah discovered that she loves tomato soup!
And they both LOVED the pink champagne cake that was brought to Gennifer for her birthday.
It was a VERY happy day.......30 years ago, when we welcomed our first baby girl into our lives.  She is a delight, and we love her more than words can say!!!
Happy Birthday baby girl!!!!  We love you so!!!!

When is a little lunch at the Nordie Cafe not a good time. What a perfect treat... I can't believe you got to eat out twice in a row. You are one lucky lady. Now, get back to work...he-he...

Happy belated birthday to Gennifer. It looks like you had a great lunch together. I've not been up to doing much reading the last few days so I wasn't on the computer much. So today I've been catching up on your past posts. What a fun lunch you had with friends.... your chickens and garden are producing...your son found his flash drive and you had a great cruise with family. I's say you have lots to smile about.

Have a great weekend. Hugs, Lura

Nordstrom's cafe is one of Mel's very favorite spots (mine too!) and rarely a visit she makes that we don't stop there. This looked fun. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your sweet girl! May the Lord bless her and make His face to shine upon her forever and ever!
