It Only Happens Once a Year

The day began with three bouquets of flowers and two cakes!  The carrot cake is for us, and the chocolate cake is for the Quail Meadow Block Party this afternoon.  I put the maize and blue bouquet next to the TV to inspire the Michigan basketball team by remote control later today!
Go Blue!
This was followed by a floral delivery - a beautiful arrangement "From all of the Eggs".  (inside joke)

Everyone knows - I love yellow roses!

Laurie and Dylan stopped over with gifts, hilarious cards, and even a balloon! There was a real "party" feel to the whole thing. She called San Diego and we all got some face time with Tom in California!

Hi Tom!

Dick and I went over to the Block Party for about an hour and a half.  Laurie was house-sitting for us to take delivery of our new chair. We enjoyed talking to Linda and Mike, John, Millie, and Marianne.  We drove Barbara back to 3624.

I just fell in love with this chair

March Madness is in full swing, and to make it a perfect B-day for me, Michigan beat Texas to advance to the Sweet Sixteen.  What a great day!
