Food, Fun & Felting

Yesterday we went out to Girdwood , to one of our most favorite restaurants, the Double Musky Inn, to celebrate both my birthday, & Tasha's (my son Corey's girl). Hers is just the week before mine. Corey just got back into town from Nome & will only be here about a week before he heads back out for the summer.
Speaking of summer, we're all a little worried that ours might be over already. We've had a glorious spring & now the last 2 days have been cool & rainy, & there's fresh snow on some of the mountain tops!
We got to the restaurant right when they open (a smart thing to do), & got seated in the atrium.
I even had a real drink, a peach Cosmo. It was tasty!
Corey says "Hi".
The food there is spectacular. I ended up having most of my meal for dinner today, because I couldn't begin to eat all of it.
I love the fused glass fish here.
& here. All the Mardi Gras beads are fun too. It's a Cajun menu.
Today I went to my friend Kate's house for a play date. Around the corner from her house I saw these little guys just sitting on these blocks like they were little yard art.
Kate's kids were all home. Hannah made popcorn the old-fashioned way, & Kate put a few too many kernels in the pot. It was pretty funny when the lid blew off.
For hand work to do at Kate's I took my needle felting supplies, & we had a great time playing. Kate had never needle felted before. She made this little Forget-me-not pin for her sister-in-law.
I decided that I should try to be a better Auntie, & make graduation cards for my 2 great-nephews that just graduated, & 2 friends girls here that graduated too.
This was the first, symbolized the "road of life",
then I switched to the "river of life" on the next 2.
The last one I made a Pansy pin,
& mounted it on top of a goofy looking butterfly, that started out as leaves, & morphed while I wasn't looking.

Lovely restaurant and what family fun to you, I have wondered where spring is hiding. It is cool and rainy yet another day this week.

Oh my goodness, snow is awful! Summer is too short to be starting out that way. Your cards are beautiful.
