A Birthday Party

Saturday has come and gone, but it’s been a good day! Started early with some tennis…

…French Open tennis, that is. This morning was the women’s finals, so I was up around 7:30 to make breakfast. Pancakes today!

I came home this afternoon to celebrate a birthday! My best friend Hannah’s dad turned 50 this year and today was his birthday celebration. His birthday is actually the same day as mine (March 29!!) but they waited to have the party until the weather was nicer.

I was excited about the party because Hannah came in from Montana! I don’t get to see her often so it was a good treat:
