Celebrated a few special people’s birthdays over the weekend – Grandma & Walter! Got all fancy-like and went to to the hottest restaurant in Lacey, Terrace Falls 😉 Took the opportunity with the new camera to get some family shots as you can never have too many of those. Good times with good family!
Our dear Grandma had a birthday over the weekend and I thought I would share a few pics of our afternoon. We had a mimosa bar with a variety of juices and fruits, chicken salad sandwiches and Liz’s homemade German Chocolate Cake. Drool. We mostly stayed inside with the air conditioning on blast – the deck was pushing 100 degrees so outside wasn’t an option! We ate, we chatted, we ate some more. Just a normal Sugiura/Heuer function 🙂 I’m so glad we are still able to celebrate these special occasions with her. Happy Birthday Grandma!!!
We celebrated my Grandma’s 85th birthday over the weekend with an afternoon tea party followed by a BBQ rib dinner. My grandma is a very special person AND she is our last living grandparent so we’re hanging onto her pretty tight! I’ve had 31 years of being in her presence, creating so many wonderful memories, and I’m very grateful for that!
As a child, I think I probably spent almost every weekend at my grandparent’s home on Beacon Hill. My Mom always talked about how my Grandpa would drive his truck over on a Friday to pick me up for the weekend. I would come back spoiled, full of doughnuts and calling my Mom “Grandma” (which she didn’t like very much.)
My Grandma taught me how to shop (always leave the bags in the car so Grandpa doesn’t see them), float in the hot tub and beachcomb. She makes a mean butter sandwich, cans THE BEST raspberry jam and can talk about the weather like no one else. She is kind, warm, generous and sassy – just how grandmas should be.
Had a lovely, long birthday weekend! I must say, turning 31 is not that exciting UNLESS you treat yourself to a new electronic device AND indulge in your favorite mall dessert – hello Cinnabon! Many thanks to those who participated in my special day 🙂
A Hello Kitty party with the Sugiura ConeCakes (thanks sis!)
A new iPad, Snood and a Cinnabon. Nothing gets better than this!
