Celebrating Nat’s 88th

It was a beautiful Sunday morning, a little cool but sunny.  We took our walk then Mom and I headed to the quilting studio for some sewing time.  Mom altered some shirts for my friend Gemma and I quilted for a while.

We had lunch and spent the rest of the day getting ready to transport a birthday party meal to Nat’s in town.  I even made a from scratch birthday cake!

Lonn, LoraLee and Katie joined us at Nat’s and we had a wonderful family evening.  Drinks with cheese and crackers followed by marinated steaks, twice baked potatoes,  and salad with Boulder River Ranch poppy seed dressing.  But the crowning part of the meal was the birthday cake—our friends Jeane and Steve owned the Boulder River Guest Ranch and the cake recipe was a ranch specialty.  It is three layer chocolate with whipped cream filling between layers and a chocolate icing to die for.  I shouldn’t have had dinner and just eaten cake!!  The Birthday cake & Nat And we won’t tell who had TWO pieces of cake (Lonn, Katie and Michael)!

Nat opened his presents and was looking forward to reading the new books he got.  At 88 his mind is still very sharp, he drives and lives alone.  He does his own yard work and pitches horse shoes for fun.  It was a wonderful day—Happy Birthday, Nat.
