It's been a bit of an extended celebration this year, starting on Sunday while Brandon was in town. We ventured out to Tim's parents house for a full "Nana" meal, which is birthday tradition for Tim. It was no joke — she made pork paprikash to eat with pasta or potatoes and finished with a caramel cake (which we sent the leftovers of back with Brandon as he starts his 2nd semester of school this year).
Some of you remembered Tim's dessert request from last year — the Baked Alaska. I had been looking forward to making them again this year, but he ended up blowing out candles Monday night over the crème brûlée we got while dining out at one of our favorite neighborhood spots, Bacchus.
For his birthday, I got him the Ray Davies book, Americana, he's been wanting for some time now and a new wallet from Moss Wood & Leather on Etsy. This coming weekend we're planning to drive to Williamsburg so he can get a crab-legs fix. Yep, this year it was crab-legs over Baked Alaska.
Oh! And we can't forget this bit of cuteness that came our way via text:
My mission this year will be convincing Tim we need to throw the big "half century" birthday party for him this time next year — can I get some words of support?
