Last Friday was my birthday and we celebrated with a few of our good friends and ate some really, really, awesome sushi.  If in the local area and you like sushi, you MUST try Ichiban.  They are the BEST in town, trust me, we have tried them all.  We love our sushi and we are picky.  I always order the Volcano roll.  It is the best I have ever had.  The Florence roll, Rolls Royce roll, and Helen roll are also very very good.

It was a great night.  Thank you to Katie, Irma, Benji, Rudy, Tebra, Josie, Shane, and Pete for being a part of my birthday dinner.  Here are a few snapshots from the evening. 

Cason and I shared some sweet exchanges. Oh how that boy has my heart. 

 

 

 

 

Our friends, Irma and Benji joined us.  Cason has Irma’s heart too. 

 

 

 

 

Our buddy, Rudy, celebrated with us also.  He is new to the sushi scene and struggles every time with the chopsticks.  It is hard for an old dog to learn new tricks.  Surprised smile  LOL!

My partner-in-crime in my home staging projects, Katie, also came to enjoy some sushi.  Cason is working on her heart. Winking smile

One tired little boy.  A few tears were shed after a minor incident with a chopstick.  Smile  Momma to the rescue.

4th of July July 7, 2011

I am late posting our 4th of July pictures. Sorry!   I started getting sick on the 4th and have been battling the flu and fever ever since.  I am sweating right now as I type trying to break this fever.  Ugh!  Cason was a bit under the weather as well, but seems to be on the mend.  So, here are some of our 4th of July pictures.  We went to Pete’s family lake house on Pickwick Lake, TN. 

 

First, some pictures of our adorable little boy, Cason.  It is hard to believe he is 4 months old!

 

 

I gathered up my 4th of July decorations and decorated the table.  I forgot to put all of the decorations I had brought on the table.  Ooops!  There is always next year!

The mayflies were hatching!  They were everywhere and covered everything!  They do not eat, they do not bite, they only mate and then they die.  What a life!  LOL!  This is my father-in-law, Bill, covered in mayflies.

Here is a self-photo of Pete and I with the lake in the background.  Pickwick Dam is just behind us.

A day at the lake is not complete unless a nap is taken.  Cason and Granddaddy took a siesta during a storm that came up.

Here are some more pictures of Cason.  After the storm blew over and the temperature cooled off, we took Cason outside on the deck.  He is such a happy baby. 

 

 

We went home before the big fireworks took place.  We did a few sparklers once we got home and Cason was not all that impressed.  I think he will like them more next year.

I hope your 4th of July was filled with fun!  Happy Thursday!
