BIRTHDAY to Rob!
Today was a pretty busy day. I had a bunch of errands to run: took Ashlyn to get portraits taken, shop for birthday gifts, and exchange some items at various stores. After Ashlyn got her pictures taken, I met up with Grace so we could go to The Spectrum together. Once I was done completing everything on my list, we walked around for a bit and bought a slice of banana cream cheesecake at The Cheescake Factory to share. It was a really warm evening so we sat outdoors by the fountain to enjoy it. Mmmm!
I got home in time to drop off some stuff and to pick Aric up. Aric and I had dinner plans with Ed, Sue, and Liv. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that dinner was going to be at The Cheesecake Factory. Since being there earlier, I was kinda hungry for their Luau Salad. =P hehehe
Dinner was good. I ordered my Luau Salad and was more than satisfied with it. It was nice catching up with Ed and Sue. Liv slept the whole time. She is such a quiet baby (though Sue begs to differ). HAHAHAHA! Ashlyn kept everyone entertained with her silly faces and goofy antics. She recently learned to wink....or I should say, tries to wink. She'll suddenly cock her head and blink both her eyes. It's pretty hilarious. And of course she loves to do her "cold" face for anyone who wants a good laugh. Sometimes she clenches and shivers so hard I worry that she's going to pop a blood vessel. Ashlyn really puts a lot of gusto into her "cold" face. HAHAHAHA!
walked around The Spectrum after dinner, but all the shops were closed
and it was oddly quiet and deserted. Usually when we go, it's bustling.
I missed the premiere of the new TV drama, "Miracles" tonight. From the commercials, it's a bit spooky like "The X-Files". I'll have to catch it next Monday.
It's late...I have to finish packing for my trip up North, and take care of some odds-n-ends before bed. Ashlyn and I are driving up tomorrow. It'll be my first time driving up with her (alone). Not quite sure how that's gonna be. It should be fine since Ashlyn enjoys long car rides and has the ability to sit in her carseat for a long period of time. But we'll see. =P
Updates (plus pictures) will resume when I get back. Bye!
