Beautiful Birthday

For my daughters birthday
she wanted to take a group of friends up to Gisela

It kinda works into the last HOORAH of the summer.
I gave up going to lunch with my girlfriends
for this pleasure.
I was the driver and got to be the official photographer.
It was a fun time
but it makes me realize
that i am not as young as i used to be.

Last year i lost my cell phone while i was there.
this year i left it in the car.
Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

Highlight of the day....
my dear sweet daughter--
thanked me for taking them.
"It was really fun mommy--
thanks for taking me and my friends"
that statement alone made missing lunch worth it.
i doubt there will be many more birthdays
that i will be so involved with
i am glad that i was there to document this one.

Gotta love and appreciate AZ
for the beauty that it does posses

You were where you were supposed to be today so I won't hold it against you that you cut out on the opportunity to have lunch with me. Inquiring minds want to know if there is a foot in that white shoe in the front of your picture and if so whose?
