Birthday Week

Ready or not another birthday arrived this week. I still don't know if I like to "celebrate" them anymore. On Monday all of us in the office went out for lunch to Portofino's to celebrate the July birthdays. We always have a fun time together. My actual birthday was on Tuesday which ended up being very busy and I was sitting in training for most of it. It was a stressful day that didn't end too well but that just happens sometimes. Wednesday afternoon the office had the July Birthday party with lots of goodies.

I was looking forward to Thursday since the Myers' we coming to town for the weekend. After taking Alyssa to her doctor appointment in LA they met me at my house after work. We drove to downtown Fullerton and walked around the farmer's market and then picked up a few things at the store for dinner. Friday I took off as a vacation day so I could spend time with them all day =) We had a lazy morning then for lunch Donna & Greg made the veggie & tofu pizza, I made the salad and Grace and Jon brought the drinks. We sat outside under the trees and enjoyed a wonderful lunch together. It was a perfect summer afternoon spending time with the kids and hanging out together. That evening we went to our favorite restaurant Lucca's Cafe in Irvine to officially celebrate my birthday. It was so good as usual. Our favorite waiter Oliver took great care of us and we enjoyed an amazing evening of wonderful food and family.
Saturday after breakfast Donna and I went on a nice little hike with the kids. Then after lunch we drove out to LA to The Grove and Farmers Market. That is always an interesting experience. So many different kinds of food! That evening we barbecued and had another great meal outside under the trees. I love summer!
