Happy birthday, Nahna!
Last night, we got to celebrate with Aaron's mom. It's still such a treat to be close to family and be able to celebrate special days together! I hope I never get used to the joy of family and friends living nearby.
Because Aaron's mom strives to be gluten-free, we (okay, you all know it was really Sarah who made the birthday cake) tried a new recipe, "Deep, Dark Flourless Chocolate Cake", from one of our favorite cookbooks, the "Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook". I'm so glad Nahna is gluten-free because this cake is fabulous and will be on our table again.
The weather cooperated beautifully for the 13th of August. A little touch of fall was in the air with a nice breeze and lower humidity. The weather (high of 90 and low of 66!) was a lovely gift for a lovely lady, and we enjoyed eating supper outside.
Olivia trounced us all soundly in a birthday game of golf. I don't think she realized she was supposed to let the birthday girl win.
