Yesterday was my husband John's birthday. When asked what he wanted to do he said he wanted to see all of his kids and grand kids, and also he wanted to go to the Kohl's sale, and the antique mall. He also mentioned a movie, but we ran out of time so we will do that today or tomorrow.
Since our daughter Lisa and her husband Brad and their daughter Bailey had evening plans already, they met us at The Rib Crib for lunch. I forgot my camera, so we didn't get any pictures with them,... but we had a good time, good food, and good fellowship,...and Grandpa shared his free Birthday treat!
Then we went to the big Veteran's Day sale at Kohl's. John loves to find the bargains and then use his coupons for even greater savings, and then also get his additional bucks to spend at another visit. We both found things there and even a Christmas gift for someone.
Then we ventured on to the antique mall on the west side of town and spent quite a long time browsing and hunting for treasures. I know it was John's birthday, but I found more than he did. I found a cute little etched hand mirror, and also a little perfume bottle for my curio cabinet, and a couple of cute cards I might frame for my antique office/bedroom.
From the antique mall we went up north of town to our daughter Lynnette's house and on to the little pizza place in her town called Killroys. Our daughter Lonna and her 4 kids met up with us there. Lynnette and the 6 kids too of course, but Kyle joined us later since he had been in Kansas City on business.
Then we all went to Lynnette's house after eating and visited some more. We all treasure the times when we can be together. It is hard to schedule, but we try to do it once a month when we can, to celebrate family birthdays.
We have a granddaughter turning 17, so we will do it all over again real soon.
I love my husband so much....he is so good to all of us. I think he enjoyed his day,...and so did I. ((smile))
