Happy 61st birthday Randy! We love you!

What a great time we're having celebrating Randy's birthday today! Our visit to Amy's has been so much fun! A few pictures to share...that's Cody our awesome grandson driving us to see the Community garden. So pretty!

Cody & Amy's garden
Indian pepper plants are quite colorful and plants were everywhere... re-seeded  each year with Mother Nature's help Amy was told.

Amy shared with me that Sabbu (one of the community gardeners) planted this row of corn so that everyone can have some at Thanksgiving. How thoughtful is that!
Yes, there was even a little butterfly garden. Just didn't get a photo.
The community 'Herb Garden' (pictured above) for everyone to enjoy. The Lemon grass smells so wonderful...I'm just not sure what to do with it. Any ideas?

A fantastic 'Seafood boil' birthday dinner! Oh my it was incredibly good. Randy said it was the best birthday dinner he's ever had.
 Crab legs, potatoes, sausage, shrimp, lobster, corn on the cob!
Our other handsome grandson Darian!
His favorite...chocolate cake. Complete with hugs, kisses, cards, birthday presents and best wishes.
How I love that man wearing the funny cap! Randy is such a great guy and I'm sure God danced the day he was born. Maybe some year we can vacation in the Bahamas, his choice for a dream destination trip. Oh yeah...count me in!!
