Belated Birthday Lunch With Myrtle

It has become tradition to go out to eat with Myrtle to celebrate her birthday (on the 14th) and Philip's birthday (on the 15th), since they are one day and exactly 50 years apart in age.   This year, since we've all been so sick, we had to postpone that for a few days and just went out with her this past Tuesday.  Philip was post call, so he was home and it was THE MOST BEAUTIFUL day of the year so far.  It couldn't have been more perfect.    We had lunch on the patio of the Boathouse Landing, an awesome restaurant super close to our house.   The air was warm, the birds were chirping, the view was gorgeous, the kids were sweet (for the most part), the sweet tea was divine, the conversation was great, the hush puppies crisp and the food delicious!

For Years, I thought I didn't like catfish, but I decided to order it (since it was one of the specials) and it was AWESOME!!

All of us

We. Love. Myrtle.   We will miss her Desperately when we move (and secretly wish she would just come with us).   What a blessing she has been to our family!

After naps, we got in the van and drove to Destin and surprised the kids at the... LEGO movie!  (The best part was that we had bought movie tickets with our play pass!)

We all loved it! =)
