Turning 60!

Standard

It has happened!  It was a while back – mid-March.  I will tell you, it was scary!  I cried a lot – can’t tell you why, only that it seems unbelievable that I have come up against and even gone through this milestone.  I told Hubster, before my birthday, that I wanted to lay low and treat this just like any other birthday and NOT a decade turning life event.  He listened and it was a nice quiet birthday.  We were invited to dinner at Hubone’s brother’s home.  Kel served a scrumptious dinner and afterwards we enjoyed a homemade New York Style cheesecake that Kel baked served with cherry pie filling (a big favorite of mine!) or a berry compote.    It was magnificent!

Let the feasting begin!

A masterpiece! Hublet’s piece! You can hardly see the cake for all the walnuts!

 

Little would you know that I went back and spooned a lot more cherry pie filling on after picture was taken. You only turn 60 once!

The next day we drove to Boise to celebrate with our daughter, our oldest son and their families!

I just HAD to eat a piece of cheesecake for breakfast! Right?

We went to our oldest son’s house and had pizza and salad and then celebrated with a “S’more” cake made by our sweet girlie Sarah!!!

Our oldest son’s birthday is the day before mine.  (He was due on my birthday but was born at 11:20 pm the day before 35 years ago!)  We celebrated his birthday as well!  We are so proud of him and his family!

Birthday cake time!

It was a great time!  I felt so loved.  I am grateful to be where I am in life, blessed beyond measure!  Now looking forward to reaching 70.  After all, “It’s not whether you win or lose, it is how you run the race!”  Right?  (I never was much of a runner, I hope walking counts!!!)
