Comments for Ian's Birthday
Ian's Birthday: 03/20/07
After spending the entire morning and much of the afternoon helping Ian clean out Ferdinand and get him down to Pick N Pull in Newark we were ready to party! To celebrate Ian's birthday a couple days early, the six of us went to Chevy's for dinner.
Sean, who had been minigolfing with Judy and Charlie, rode with them to dinner. They still had his booster seat in their car and he was enjoying being a "big boy" and riding with them. That left Ian and me time to get Harriet read and the opportunity to leave a little early from dinner to get her home for bed time.
Harriet did really well even with being kept up two hours past her usual bed time. She sat at the head of the table and drank a bottle. She wasn't interested in eating solids this late in the day but she did have fun smashing tortilla chips in her hands. Two days later, I'm still finding chip fragments in her sling!
After dinner and after getting Harriet home, we finished celebrating with a slice of homemade cherry pie and a little bit of the vanilla ice cream Sean, Harriet and I had purchased on Friday. The pie was the other thing I had done in the afternoon. Last year's severe rainstorms in northern California killed off enough of the cherry crop that this year's price on canned cherries has doubled but the pie was worth the expense. Ian loves cherry pie and wanted it instead of a birthday cake.
It was a nice early birthday celebration.
