Happy Birthday Son!

July 11, 1974 was one of the happiest days of my life.     I gave birth to the most beautiful baby boy!    I can’t believe he’s 37 today!    He is still my “little boy” and sometimes I can’t believe he belongs to me.     He is the best son ever and is a wonderful husband to Jennifer and daddy to McKinley and Cade.

Saturday we went to Birmingham to spend the day and eat supper.    We ate at Chuy’s at the Summit…the same restaurant he chose last year.     Outside the planters were full and lush….not an easy task in this heat!

Next to Chuy’s is a store I adore….it’s one of mine and my daughter’s favorite places to shop….Charming Charlie’s.

If you have one anywhere near where you live, I would strongly recommend you go!     Lots of eye candy and you won’t leave empty handed.


We had to wait about an hour for our table so I took a few pictures….The Summit is perched high on the mountains in Birmingham with magnificant views

Back at the “ranch” the girls had baked a cake and started icing it

I think they might need some lessons in cake baking (and some front teeth)!

What a sweet post. All of us "Mommas" have every right to brag a little or a lot. I, too, have one of those sweet boys (mine is just a year older than yours) & one of those sweet girls (she just turned 40-OUCH!). The two of them, along with their wonderful spouses, have given us 6 beautiful "grands." Life just doesn't get any better. Happy Birthday to your son, and congratulations to you for sharing an obviously wonderful relationship with your children.

What a sweet post! My son turned 19 in March and will be leaving for school in August. Very bittersweet. I love seeing these photos and know that one day we will be sharing HIS family together. Thank you for sharing!
