Bean’s Birthday Dinner

On the girls’ birthdays I pick up their requested lunch, a birthday treat to share with their friends, and I have lunch with them.  Zman wanted to know why I don’t have lunch with him.  So I offered to pick up lunch for his upcoming birthday.  He was all excited until I reminded him that I’d be joining him for lunch.  Funny, all of a sudden Chik-Fil-A was not so appetizing….

Anyway, Bean requested a McDonald’s cheeseburger – plain.

She is not big on cupcakes, so we searched for an alternative.

Twinkies make everyone smile!  And they have a 3 to 4 year shelf life.  What more could you ask for?

Look how good they make you feel!

As I have said before, in our family, on your birthday you pick the dinner.  Bean ALWAYS picks Macaroni Grill. 

I picked up Mamaw after work and Fadre picked up the kids.  And we all met a Macaroni Grill.  Here’s a video of Bean’s excursion from her friend’s house to the truck to head off to dinner.  A little dramamine anyone?


You have to wait a few minutes when you ask for a table for 13.  Let’s see how we spent our time…

What’s in the bag?  What’s in the bag?

It’s her own camera so she doesn’t have to share.  She was elated!

And then this lovely lady sang “Happy Birthday” in Italian.   Complete with a piece of chocolate cake.

  1. Happy Birthday, Bean! What fun having Mom bring a special Birthday Lunch to school. That's so cool.

    I think my head is still spinning from the race to Fadre. I might even be sick here in a minute from all of the herky-jerky, eratic movement. But it was all in true girly style! She was sooo excited about her Birthday Dinner. And how great is that to get a new camera for your birthday so you no longer have to share with your little sister? That's the best!

    Sorry I haven't emailed you back about the Easter Egg Hunt yet. Pretty sure we're not leaving here til that morning so we'd miss it. Looks like we'll leave Memphis on Tuesday morning so maybe I can just meet you somewhere for a cup of coffee. Do y'all have Starbuck's there? LOL!!!!

    Have a great week!
