But it seems like I've had a week's worth of birthday celebrations.
To kick it off Monday evening, my wonderful friend, Valerie, brought a cake, chips and pop to baseball in the evening and surprised me with a "party" after the game.
Then, Tuesday, we went to Grand Forks with our friends Al & Darlene and had a great three days together. (Here's a a picture of Darlene and I in the hallway of our hotel.)
Then, yesterday, my friends Cyndie, Pam, Mary & Val took me out for brunch (& provided babysitters, too.)
And then, my very good friend Anita stopped by in the afternoon for a visit.
I love my birthday week. If anything, it is just a fabulous reminder that God has blessed me with awesome friends!
