It's Toot Your Horn Tuesday - And what a birthday it was!!

My birthday cake - made of flowers!

I entered my 63rd year on September 2nd...
and what a day of fun it was!
Two dear friends from my prayer group took
me to breakfast at a local place that serve
delicious breakfasts... with singing chefs!
They sang "Las Mananitas"...
the traditional birthday song in Mexico.
I met with my two sisters-in-law who both
have birthdays within two weeks of mine.
We meet annually to celebrate our "advancing"
year and to share a little fun gift for each other.
The day seemed to go on and on and lots of
great visiting.
That evening my husband and son took me
to El Divino, a tapas style restaurant.
I wish the pictures did justice to the food,
but here goes...
(Would be you believe there was no moaning and groaning as I took
pictures of the food??!! )

Shrimp Tacos

Grilled Asparagus

Tuna Sashimi

and my favorite...
Scallops Wrapped in Bacon

What a fun day...
(I think I gained a few pounds AND a year!)
