They really enjoyed their brief time away so I'm glad I was able to stay with the boys for them.
It's been a busy weekend. Lloyd's birthday was yesterday but we started celebrating on Saturday. He and I spent the day together doing all sorts of things. We bought some cupcakes at our favorite bakery and put a candle in each of them and had our own birthday cake, with no leftovers to tempt us.
|62 looks good on Lloyd|
We went to the dealership and picked up his 2012 Mazda 6 which he traded in his Dodge Ram Laramie truck for. We love the car...a nice change from the big, expensive to operate truck.

Saturday evening we went to Rob and Cindy's place for dinner and birthday cake. Anson and Brooklyn blew out the candles for him.
|Anson moved in quickly and blocked Lloyd's face - bad angle on my part|
On Sunday I babysat four grandkids at Sara's while Lloyd went golfing with Rob. Then we had dinner at Sara's with yet another birthday cake!
|With help from Charlie and Max. Love the monster cake.|
Then yesterday, his actual birthday, we spent another quiet day together and in the evening went to Amy's place for...apple pie...a pleasant change from all the cake we ate all weekend. Amy and Curtis had just got home from a trip to Minnesota so there was lots of catching up to do, and visiting with the kids.
And that's it for Lloyd's birthday. I'm not sure how, why or when our birthday celebrations began to be days or week long events, but that seems the norm for us now. Lloyd said it was his best birthday ever. (I think it's because the older he gets the harder it is for him to remember any birthdays before the current one ;) lol)
