Beach Week: Day 2 ~ Celebrating my BIRTHDAY!!

Today was my birthday!

This is the beach house where we are staying.
Sunrises are beautiful and I have Sabrina to thank for this one.
SHE was the one up early to catch it.......I was still asleep.

Riding a motorcycle on the beach the day I turned 65 is a memory I will long remember!

We had beach time in early and late afternoon complete with all the chairs, canopies and sand toys and floats. PERFECT beach weather today!

Good times and good wine with good friends!

Summer wanted to have a birthday cake for me so she called the Chamber of Commerce here in Bolivar before she ever left Dallas and they put her in contact with a local lady who bakes cakes. This was THE most delicious carrot cake I have ever had!!! Leave it to Summer to find one!!

Today was full of Happy Birthday greetings and gifts!!
Summer and Sabrina gave me a huge bag FULL to the brim of all sorts of lovely things!!!

This shirt is from my sister, Luann, and I plan to wear it tomorrow when we take the ferry over to Galveston.
She got one for herself as well so we will be Twinkies!

It was like a party tonight!
Music was playing as dinner was being prepared and there was even some dancing in the kitchen.

I have had a good birthday.
Sabrina made a wonderful meal of pork roast, carrots and mashed potatoes with garlic toast.
I even had a crown and sash with decorations!!

Our entertainment this evening was NUTS!
We all take this game very seriously by the looks on our faces.

There really was a lot of laughter!!

As birthdays go - this was one of the best!
Fresh air, sunshine, sand and salt water, family and friends, good food and wine, lots of smiles and laughter.
I am so blessed!

Here is al ink to a local website for Boliver that you might find interesting while you are there. It contains all the local news and info for the area. http://www.crystalbeachlocalnews.com/

    If you are looking for something to do in Galveston Moody Gardens is an awesome place to go. They have huge movie (3-D, 4-D) screens, rainforest and just lots of fun stuff and it is beautiful out there.
