A Fun-filled Birthday Outing

You just can't let a birthday go by...

Especially if your daughter says she wants to spend it with the woman who put her on this earth. 

We take off, Daughter and Mother for a fun-filled day. You see, nearby Smithfield was conducting a "Selfie" contest and we want to win the prize. 

Lunch was scrumptious. And, fun... it always is with Middle Daughter. That's Shirley, she's my middle daughter. She's the only child who lives near me, too. 

We hadn't been to The Bakery in FOREVER! And, their chicken salad sandwiches made on tomato-basil home-baked bread can't be beat. We treated ourselves to Blackberry-Herb iced tea, too. 

         Did I say that sandwich was HUGE?

No dessert here, not even a piece of birthday cake. We know where they give birthday folks a free ice cream cone! 

The Daughter enjoying her ice cream.

Mine was good, too.

We meandered off down the street... it was hot and muggy. That's the south for you in the summertime! 

But regardless of the heat, The Christmas Shop was calling us. 

But, first Shirley had to have her picture made with this cute Irish fellow.

He paid her no mind... just stared at me making that picture. Hmmmmm.

We had so much fun in the Christmas Shop we forgot to make pictures. Sounds like a return trip to me, don't you agree?


  1. Looks and sounds like you had a wonderful birthday with your daughter. I think I would have had to split that sandwich... and that picture of your daughter with Jamie Fraser of the Outlander series is cute. I read all the Outlander books and they did a pretty good job with the TV series.

  2. Happy Birthday. You really did have a happy and fun one. That sandwich would have been beyond me without a knife and fork. Wow.
    That Irish fellow was definitely hitting on you. He is a cutie.

  3. a return trip to the christmas shop is definitely in order!! your daughter looks like a fun time, happy birthday to her!!!

    and those sandwiches, wow, those look amazing. i would travel to you neck of the woods just for one of those!!!

  4. Woah, that’s quite a sandwich! Fun to have your daughter to celebrate your birthday with, and a belated Happy Birthday to you. Thanks so much for your comment on my blog this morning. I checked out Granny and her Walker — it’s adorable! Thanks for the suggestion, I’m now a follower.
