Today Elaine came to Philly and we met our brother and sister-in-law and two of our friends for dinner. We went to the Country Club Diner. The meal was really good.
Our friends Marion and Rich
My brother Larry and sister-in-law Kim
The birthday girl, Elaine
When dessert came out the waitress brought Elaine a cupcake with a lit candle in it and we all sang "Happy Birthday". I think she was embarrassed, but she kept smiling through it all.
As we left the restaurant the sky was threatening.
We got in the car when the first drops fell. As we drove out of the parking lot the deluge hit. It was so heavy that I could see less than a foot in front of me. We don't live very far from the diner so that was good, but the going was very slow. Hopefully this will break our heat wave and give us some cooler weather. We so need the rain too.
Tomorrow we're off to Lancaster County.
The pictures are great! Especially the storm.ReplyDelete
I am glad that you & Elaine make that kind of time for each other. In
today's fast-paced world too many days like that are squeezed out for
something else. Family & friends are important & there should always be
time for them. Enjoy!
What a great tradition, a week with your sister.ReplyDelete
Looks like you started off very well, family, friends, food & fun.
The pics came out grate . We had a good time.ReplyDelete
What a great idea for you and your sister. I would like to do that with one of my sisters too!! some day! We've been getting some rain here as well...man, have we needed it too. We had a really good storm yesterday, lots of thunder and lightning and wind. Glad I was home and not out driving in it!ReplyDelete
