A very happy day

Here are a few pics from our day out yesterday to celebrate hubby’s birthday. First stop was for lunch at ‘The Grand Lux Cafe’ in Boca. This restaurant has really elegant decor, a huge menu to choose from, as well as great service Hubby toasted his 71st with a very welcome ice-cold ‘Samuel Adams’. IMG_7551 My choice was a White Sangria with Pinot Grigio, Champagne and Fresh Fruit. IMG_7552 We decided to snack on shared starters and small plates. These mini pizzas were so delicious. IMG_7556 Followed by crab cakes and double-stuffed potato spring rolls. As you can see, we were on a really healthy diet. 🙂 IMG_7560 We were longing to try the cheesecake, but had absolutely no room for it. Maybe another time. Then it was time do do a bit of shopping, and hubby treated himself to two pairs of shoes, which is quite a rare occurrence. In the car, we had a phone call from our son and the three littlies who all wanted to wish granddad a happy birthday at the same time. They are just the cutest little trio. The two girls have taken up art lessons after seeing granny’s painting. Taylor of course had to paint a cat in her first lesson. She has this thing about cats, even though at home, they only have a dog. I think she did a really good cat. IMG_7525 Well, it’s time to get down the suitcases and start decided what to leave behind and what to take. I may not have so much time to pop in on your blogs, as we leave on Tuesday evening, and have a lot to do before then. Today hubby is over at the other house, painting walls and door frames. He has to make up for having the day off for his birthday. He’s booked our flights on Virgin, and found a super beach front apartment for us to rent for our month’s stay in Umhlanga Rocks. It has sea views from every window. We’re so looking forward to our trip, and a week tomorrow we’ll be picking up our daughter and going off up the hill to see my mom. Wishing you all a splendid weekend.
