Happy Birthday MiMi

I'm still here. We had some great weather here last week so we spent much of our time playing outside and then on Friday we made a last minute decision to go to Arkansas to see my parents for the weekend. We had a great time and I will tell you more about our trip later this week.

On January 18th, MiMi (David's mom) celebrated her 60th Birthday. We took her out to Joe T. Garcias for lunch to celebrate. Her favorite dessert is flan and that is one of their specialties there so that is one of the reasons that we chose to take her there.

We ate in one of the inside rooms in the garden part of the restaurant because it was so windy that day. Kirstyn really enjoyed giving MiMi and Grandpa a tour of the garden. I even captured a rare picture of Grandpa and Kirstyn walking hand in hand.
I can't ever get these guys to pose for a picture but at least I got a shot of them. Lately, my challenge has been getting Kirstyn to NOT pose for every picture I try to take... I give up.
Say a quick prayer for Grandpa, Ned, today as he is having another surgery on his hip this morning.

What a beautiful garden, just lovely. And you all in sweaters and such...not that I feel sorry for you but it must be cold by Texas standards ;)

Happy Birthday to MiMi!

Awww, sounds like you gave MiMi a wonderful day! That is a gorgeous restaurant pool area! I love all the urns with flowers! Adding Grandpa Ned to my thoughts and prayers. Hope he recuperates quickly and with minimal pain.
