Happy First Birthday Daniel!

Today is my nephew's first birthday. I'm so sorry I wasn't able to be with him on this very special day. The family celebrated "Tol", a traditional Korean first-birthday bash. I truly wish I could have been there. Such a special blessing he is. We love you big D.

The kid and I went and spent time with mom this afternoon. Mom was absolutely radiating.

It was a gorgeous day.

A little hot in the sun, but we found a shady spot under the patio awning, and it was absolutely perfect.

A lady came out and showed us where a hidden robin's nest was. The babies look pretty big. They were just waiting for momma to return with some food! So sweet.

I kinda miss having nests all around my porches, but the cats would wreak havoc with them, so I'm glad they don't nest with us anymore. I worried like a mother hen every time I would let a cat outside.

Look at the gorgeous Angel's Trumpets! They were flourishing on the ironwork.

They were flourishing on the ironwork.

The colors changed from pink to a salmon to a bright yellow.

Lovin' my momma.

She was cracking up at something!

After we left, we had an early dinner around the corner. Mmmmm, Mexican. I love salsa verde.

And poblano peppers stuffed with chicken. Mmmmm mmmmm good.

The weekend is over. I always look forward to Mondays. Go figure.

Happy Birthday to Daniel!!!!! Sorry you couldn't be with him---but you'll have many more years to be with him.

Your mother has the most beautiful smile. And you, my dear, looked gorgeous!!!! Loved that photo of you two together.

I always like Mondays better too, even though we are retired. When I worked it was different, of course.

What a lovely post this is. I love a baby birthday, and the first one is always very special. Your nephew is going to have such a great life, within your loving family. What a lucky little boy.

I love baby birds too, but I have to admit, that I'm always relieved when they keep their nests away from the front porch. They used to always nest in my hanging baskets, which made it a little bit difficult to water them!

Wonderful pictures, I can't see them all for some reason the filters at my school doesn't let me see them all now. But I did see the one of you and your Mom and it is precious.
Happy Birthday to Daniel!
