If there was ever a month of birthdays July was it. Though Lee’s birthday is technically in June, we celebrated her 40th with a weekend getaway in Montana. The next weekend my mom and I helped Amy Alice celebrate her 50th… though the cutout “5” on the wall wishing her a Happy 50th kept twisting in the breeze and looked like a “2” more of the time. Ah, to be 20 again even if it is only dependent on which way the wind is blowing. The next weekend I was in San Francisco celebrating the 3rd birthday of Kelly’s daughter Isabella. A big age to be sure. It’s about 3 when you really start to understand the whole birthday concept… ooh, I get presents and cake and people treat me like a princess all day. A girl could get used to this. I’m sure that’s what Izzy B was thinking as her family and friends surrounded her on a lovely sunny day in the hills surrounding Berkeley. So Happy Birthday! It was so much fun celebrating these momentous occasions.
