We celebrated in traditional style for our household – a menu for dinner which includes all the choices of the birthday celebrant, right up to the kind of cake.
Tonight, my daughter chose, grilled chicken and bison burgers, green salad, macaroni salad, pickles, potato chips, lemonade, and Dairy Queen ice cream cake.
We had my husband’s mother and my parents in attendance. At one point in our lives, all grandparents lived in other cities far away from us. We are fortunate now to have everyone living close enough that we can celebrate milestones such as this together.
