A Breakfast Party


Bacon, Puffy Pancake, Spinach and Sundried Tomato Frittata, two kinds of Muffins, Jiffy Cinnamon Buns, Fruit, Chai Tea, and Coffee. What a feast we enjoyed over the weekend. No lunch needed after this meal. 
 

It was, as is our tradition, a triple celebration. Within 18 days, three of us have birthdays. The mothers of Little Misses A and S, and their Nana. The gentlemen of the family, plus Ashley, who celebrates in September, whipped up a beautiful party for us, ending with a Raspberry Cheesecake Coffee Cake. How I love my family, and the times we all get together. It can get noisy, and there's always a little picking up to be done at the end, but oh, the joy!
 

After Little Miss A's nap, she and I went for a walk to the park while the others played games. Blue sky peeked between the clouds. The Garry Oak branch still holds its leaves, but not for long. Many trees are bare. 

Today is bright and sunny. I think I like this time change that brings the light earlier in the morning. I feel more energized. Or maybe that's a result of all the cake and cinnamon buns I've eaten!

I hope your Monday is just fine.

What a delightful (and beautiful) array of goodies and what a fine celebration! We also have a triple birthday celebration in our family. Ours is in August and includes my mother, my oldest daughter, and me. A family extravaganza is indeed a joyful occasion! Happy birthday to all three of you!
