Happy Birthday to My Wife!

Today’s blog post is being written from the French Riviera, where my wife Mary and I are celebrating her birthday.

Scratch that first sentence, I must have slipped into my fantasy world for a second.

Anyway, today is my wife’s birthday, and while we don’t have much planned for today, since we’re both working tonight, we (my wife, my youngest son, and I) did have a festive dinner last night with her sister and her family at Cantina Los Caballitos in Philadelphia.

There was an unending supply of chips and salsa, a pitcher of frozen margaritas, yummy tacos, and to top it all off, a birthday cake (and nothing goes with cake like some sriracha sauce!). The only thing better than the food was the company, and the service was top-notch.

When I was looking for a picture to put at the top of this blog, I was going to use one that just had Mary in it from her early childhood, but then I thought I might as well include her sister as well. They were inseparable as kids, and as you can see in the picture from last night’s dinner, they are still inseparable (my wife is on the right side of each picture).

In addition to last night’s festivities, we also have an upcoming trip to D.C. to meet our oldest son. As you can tell from her great smile in the picture from last night, my wife likes nothing better than spending time with her family, so I am sure the celebration will continue in Washington.

Anyway, Happy Birthday to the love of my life!

P.S. I was going to try and recreate the baby picture at the restaurant, but since I couldn’t find the baby dress, I thought I would just let it go.
