A lovely assortment of cupcakes arrived for my daughter's birthday . . . I had a chocolate with peanut butter cream icing. This was the first birthday dinner with her dad's family.
Our former neighbours across the lane knocked out a section of the fence with their truck and the new panel is finally in place. I think a paint job is on the slate for next spring.
Birthday dinner #2 was with a group of young disabled kids that Shannon and Alison run a boccia club for. Some of the girls from the club come to the house on Sunday afternoons just to hang out. One of the mom's made this cake and a casserole dinner for everyone.
Coming home from birthday dinner #3, the going down of the sun was spectacular. I made an unscheduled turn and pulled over just to take this shot. This was Shannon's actual birthday . . . my baby girl is 32. She does not cooperate with me taking pictures of her.
Auntie Martha stopped by with flowers and a card for Shannon . . .
lovely gerberas and yellow tiger lilies too.
Still some colour in the the garden . . .
red coneflower with some heather in the background.
The last of the sunflowers still going strong.
