Well this is a first for me. Actually two firsts. I’ve never had a Mylar balloon on my birthday and I don’t ever remember a girl giving me a rose. My wonderful bride did both this morning for my birthday. It was quite a treat.
Last night we celebrated Mark’s birthday. His birthday is actually on the 2nd but College Boy was in Cedar Falls so he and Julia came back Sunday for the Super Bowl and stayed over an extra day to have his birthday.
He wanted to eat at Vinny Vanucchi’s Restaurant in Dubuque, Iowa. I had never eaten there before. The service was good as was the food. I had a little trouble with the bread (way too much butter and seasoning) and the Lambrusco was superb. The price $$$$ “WOW!” Still it was a wonderful evening and everyone had a good time.
This is the dessert they brought Mark. It was one of the most sinfully delicious desserts I have ever had. Ben and Angie got one to share after sampling Mark’s. If you go there sometime try it. You won’t forgive yourself if you pass it up.
What about the little guy. He was in his car seat at the left hand of his Dad. He was asleep at first but sat there quietly during the whole meal. I peeked over the table and got this shot of Josh. Angie and Mark both would throw the biggest tantrum anytime Jeanne and I went to a restaurant to eat. They would normally wait until the food was brought and then start crying loudly. 🙂
Well I’m doing absolutely nothing today. I usually take my birthday off and just slug around the house and that is exactly what I’m doing for the rest of the day.
Thanks for stopping by and be careful out there.
