Happy Birthday Jake!

Today is Jake's Birthday. It is our second family birthday this week. I still have leftover cake from Avery's - maybe I will just use it for Jake. LOL. He is not a cake person. But I would like to thank him for making my blog pretty. It took the flower photo in my flower bed and then edited it to make it pretty. I couldn't get it on my blog for nothin'. I gave up. Then the hero rode it....I am going to keep it like this for a while. At least until fall. Thank you Jake!

I took today off work to spend the day with the family. We were going to go Geocaching and then Jake & I were planning for the Aeros game this evening. It is raining and it is going to rain all day. Bummer. We could work on Garage Sale stuff. I am sure that is what Jake wants to do on his birthday.....

Last night we went for our evening walk - what we often do - around the block. There is this house that has been empty pretty much since we moved into the neighborhood. We have peaked in the windows and snooped around a few times. We noticed that it sold a few weeks ago.... We were by the house and I saw the new people were there. I was across the street and I said, "so when are you moving in?" The guy looked up and to my surprise it was an old friend from college. He was part of "my gang" of psych buddies. We took a bunch of classes together and hung out a lot. Well, he, his wife Ellen and their two children are practically neighbors. I am so excited about this. I just love when I run into old friends who know my cast of characters and the old days. I don't know why....I just do.

Oh, while I was writing this Elise came up to me and started asking about Jake's birthday. I told her we don't have a birthday cake. She said, "we can use Avery's!" Like mother, like daughter!
