On Monday, April 25th, 2011, Don turned 60 years young. I know that is a typical thing to say, but in his case, it is TOTALLY true.
Patrick and Abigail were the first to arrive at the Silver Lake house. I'd not seen Abigail since December, so she was a little shy for a bit....she'd also just woken up from napping in the car, too. Soon, however, and with the enticements of 3 new puppies and a dog house, she warmed up. ;)
One of the rare moments that Patrick got to sit still......
Julie arrived after working all day (she works in Traverse City). Abigail showing her "surprise face". ;)
We went to Trattoria Stella, a restaurant in Grand Traverse Commons, where we also went for my 60th birthday last April.
Patrick, Abigail, and Julie........
Don, me, and Sean. Unfortunately, we did not get any photos of Claire while at the restaurant. It seems she was the one taking most, if not all, the photos!
