A Birthday Gift Treasure

My birthday yesterday was exactly how I expected it to be, plus more. This very special wooden custom made plaque was from Steph and her family. I can't tell you how much this means to me. I haven't found the perfect place to hang it yet. It will go either in my kitchen or above my picture wall. I had to kid her and ask "what if we need to add to the names" She gave me this look that sort of made me believe I will just have 6 grandkids....
I had lots of birthday wishes from dear friends, family members, went to lunch with my parents (because I chose to work) and went on my extended lunch hour, ate my favorite food for lunch at Olive Garden. After I got off work we went to the County Fair with Steph and family. She treated us to yummy fried veggies and shake up lemonade. We also sampled fried milky way candy bar, fried reese peanut butter cup, fried oreo and funnel cake. The best birthday cake!
I enjoyed watching the boys ride the rides and enjoyed looking at the piglets. I even treated myself to a cute pair of fake Coach sunglasses. The weather could not have been more perfect. As we were getting ready to leave it started to rain. We sought shelter in the horse barn until the rain let up. It was a very fun Birthday!

Well happy Birthday to you!
Sounds like you had a "sweet" day. :)
I almost tried a fried candy bar once...I'll bet it was great. And you can NEVER go wrong with a funnel cake.
Cute sign...I know you will find a great place for it.

What a beautiful plaque... just gorgeous and thoughtful and perfect. (I might have to send one of my kids to do some digging into where Steph had it made... just saying!)
And if any more grandkids show up, just add another plaque underneath it! I am so happy for you that your birthday was so very lovely!
