Day 286 - morning hugs

I was working on the computer and heard some talking coming from the other room. I grabbed my camera and walked in to see Ian and Emmy sitting on her bed just talking. Of course, Ian spotted me JUST before I snapped the pic. Still, it warms my heart.

Day 281 - My Baby Girls Birthday!!

My baby girl turned 13 years old today!!
No technical info here today....just fun stuff. :)We asked Em to hide behind the pillow until we were ready.
This was her first look at her birthday present; A Nintendo DS.

She had her choice of ANY restaurant and chose to eat her birthday dinner at Foster Freezes. A fifties-type diner that's been a staple of Vacaville longer than I've been alive.

A funny moment between Ian and, my parents, Pappa and Grandma P (who met us at Fosters)

A cool angle of all of us at our table in the round mirror.

(weird coincedence moment here....the woman at the table next to us, towards the back sitting with the man, is the woman who made my wedding bouquet/ flowers for our wedding. SMALL town!)

Emmy's present from Grandma Barbara, her name is "Emmy". (really!)
