Yesterday was a unique and happy day. It was the birthday of two very special people to us.
First, our grand-daughter Kylee Greenwalt is special to us naturally. Kylee turned 8 years old in Oklahoma. We called her and she had asked her parents (Jason and Shelly) to take her to the Red Lobster there in Shawnee. And, as you may have read in a previous blog, we celebrated her birthday early while we were back in Shawnee on our Thanksgiving vacation trip.
Second, Sondra's older brother Alden is quite special to us as well. Alden moved to Rialto this year and lives just a couple of miles from us in a Senior Adult apartment complex downtown. Yesterday, he turned 59 years old. We went over to Denny's so he could enjoy a free breakfast to start the day. He had some appointments at the VA Hospital in Loma Linda and we dropped him off there after breakfast.
We told him we would take him to dinner. Guess where he wanted to go? Yes, you are right. He said, "Red Lobster." They had a special of steak and lobster, and he was looking forward to it.
He also requested a cherry cobbler (not pie), and Sondra spent part of the day putting that together. She has made many peach and berry cobblers, but never a cherry cobbler. This was a first. Well, it turned out delicious and we came home after dinner and enjoyed warm cobbler and ice cream! Before taking him back home, we gave him birthday cards and a birthday present - a boxed set of pots and pans for his new apartment.
