A birthday party


Our daughter had quite a lovely birthday
celebration over the weekend.  She says that
she had the best birthday ever!  A few things were kept
secret from her and was she ever surprised!
To start her big day, birthday flowers were 
received.


Birthday cake and ice cream was eaten.


Gifts were opened with Stormy taking it all in
 and playing with the tissue paper.

 
Les Bougeouis Vineyards overlooking the Missouri River.

Then, a late afternoon trip to the winery in Rocheport
to meet friends.
A couple of friends were invited as a surprise for
our daughter, who was thrilled to see old friends
that she hadn't seen in a while.  Her college roommate
and an old classmate were among those able to attend.

Same place, just looking away from the sun toward the Missouri River bridge.

When darkness began to fall and it was time to
leave, everyone trekked up the hill to the cars.
But, unknown to Kim, there was another surprise
waiting for her! 

A stretch limousine had been reserved to
take Kim and a few of her friends for a 
cruise around Columbia!  To say she was shocked
is putting it mildly.  I wish I had captured the look on 
her face when she realized it was there for her!  
Her brother did most of the planning for this event.
He wanted to do something special for his 
sister's birthday and it was!!

Kim loved every minute of her birthday and had
a lot of fun with all of her friends and brother, too.
The limo ride was a huge hit with everyone!
Hubby and I didn't ride in the limo, but I did
sit in it and took a few photos of the group.  
It was a wonderful and fun evening for
a special birthday celebration. 
 All too soon, it was time to say....


Good Night!!

Until next time...
