Birthday Get-A-Way Weekend!

This past weekend, Paul took me to Indianapolis for the night. He took me to dinner at the most wonderful place I believe I have ever eaten. It was Maggiano's. Another couple friend of ours met us there, and we dined "family style". We had two appetizers, two salads, two pasta dishes, two meat dishes, and two desserts. Everything that we had was absolutely wonderful. There was nothing that we ate that I would not recommend. We will definitely go again.

The atmosphere was wonderful as well. There was live music, and it was definitely a "dinning experience". One that I will not soon forget. You ought to go!
Then we stayed at the Hilton. It wasn't extremely fancy, but was nice, just the same. It was great to be away and "re-group". We went shopping for a little while on Saturday morning. We were afraid we weren't going to get to go because of the weather forcast, but everything worked out in the end. Thank you Mom and Dad, Cathy, and Sarah for making it possible so that we could go away, and for all of your help with our children, and thank you Honey, for a wonderful time away.
Here is a picture of my birthday cake. Now that's my kind of cake...total CHOCOLATE!!!! It was really good. Thanks honey!One last picture of the little "old lady". I'm not getting any younger.
Since Paul took it upon himself to tell everyone that today is my birthday (in a post earlier today), I thought I might as well share it with you in pictures. Be sure to check out my other posts that I added today as well.

Happy Birthday! I don't believe you told us how old you are?? :) I think I can guess, though. I do know you're older than me! :) So glad you got to go away. Every couple needs that every now and then. Looks like you had a great time.
