a perfect birthday dinner

We were at the beach on my birthday and you know how much I love the sun and the beach. . .so you know that it was the perfect way to spend my birthday!! I was at the pool bright and early and read for a couple of hours. Then we went in and took a shower and drove up to the original oyster house for lunch. One of my favorite desserts is peanut butter pie and I never order dessert in a restaurant but since it was my birthday . ..guess what? I did!! The waitress and Mark sang happy birthday. Look at that pie - it is so tall!! Mark even ate a few bites - he liked the chocolate crust. We went back out to the beach in the afternoon and then I rented "The King's Speech" and watched it in our bedroom while the rest of the group prepared supper - I felt so spoiled!!

They prepared a wonderful dinner. We had a shrimp boil. The potatoes and corn were grown in the garden of one of Vivia's friends. George added the spice and it was spicy! It was good. Our lips were burning and we kept laughing because they were burning so much!!

Mark had purchased an ice cream cake from publix and so we had our cake and ice cream all in one. It was actually very good! Vivia and Alice both had presents for me and they all worked so hard to make my birthday special . . .and it worked!! What a special day!!
