Birthday Dinners, lemonade, and Pie

We made it to Jim N Nicks, for TheBoys Birthday Dinner.

The fresh lemonade and the cheddar biscuits (that taste like corn) were fabulous.

We ordered a combo platter, with Ribs + 3meats + 4 sides. We all had bites of ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, and smoked chicken. I, sadly, chose Collards over creamed spinach, and others chose macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, and baked beans.

They brought Matt a comp slice of pie. He chose pecan. We, then, tried the Ice Box lemon.. it was rich and fresh on a graham crust. Yum.

laughter, sleep, and movies "in"

Its so nice to hear the children laughing, all the time. Even as they become adults, they haven't stopped the practical jokes, on each other.

They went to see a movie, this morning, while I caught up on some lost sleep.

When they got home, Netflix had been delivered, in the mail. We watched 7 pounds, with Will Smith, and Knowing, with Nicholas Cage.
