Celebrating "77 on the 7th" . . .

It has been a week of celebrating . . .

Mister Irish Garden House treated me to
hear and see Celtic Women this past Sunday
with dinner after at PF Chang's.

The little gal on the left, with the fiddle, is a dynamo. 
Flitting around the stage and fiddling at the same time.
Delightful . . .
Amazing Grace with the bagpipes
Inspirational . . .

My friend Jackie treated me to a pedicure.
What a great thing to do with a friend.

I wish we had taken birthday pictures there.
Since we forget to take pictures of our pedicure
I am including this one of us from a few years ago.

Last year we started a tradition.
I had never tasted tequila so Jackie took me
out "to a biker bar" for my first shot of tequila.
 She is "crazy fun" like that and gets me "out of my box"

For this years birthday outing, I purchased a bottle of tequila,
brought along some pretty little glasses from home,
and we shared some tequila for our pedicure.
We relaxed, giggled, enjoyed!
I think the salon gals had fun with us and thought we were a hoot!

We have had wonderful girlfriend times together through the years.   

(Talk about a "hoot" . . . Jackie has me watching
Grace and Frankie . . . it is so much fun!)

On the actual birthday of June 7th,
it was the pedicure in the afternoon and then dinner with my family at night.

"77 on the 7th" was a Very Happy Day, here I am with my family,
"Mister Irish Garden House, hubs, Mister Kennedy, Jack" next to me,
DIL Sue, son Scott, daughter Suzie holding Elijah,
grandson Cody and Elise, Elijah's dad and mom.
granddaughter Amanda. 

Getting everyone together is getting to be more and more of a challenge.
And then remembering to take pictures . . .whew!
Next time hopefully Suzie's family can be with us too!

Elijah was happy and contented

I liked catching a picture of my son and daughter next to one another.

Amanda is enjoying being a first time auntie!

Not my photo but I thought you might enjoy
seeing this growing fast four month old adorable.
Elijah and his mom were off to his first visit to the zoo.

I found this lovely little planter at my door on my birthday.
It is looking wonderful on the porch with this
"Nothing Can Be Sweeter Than Friendship"
Thank you to my family,
Jackie, Donna, Chuck, Libby, Bettie
for making this such a wonderful day!

This is pretty glorious! BIG HAPPY! And what a fun way to celebrate! I've had the pleasure of seeing Celtic Woman in concert and I know what a treat you had! Add to that all the other festivities and I'd say it was a birthday to remember!
