Celebrating Another Wonderful Year!!

Another year has sped by, making an occasion for a fun birthday celebrated with dear friends and family in a beautiful, warm place. I'm a very lucky woman!

We were all together last year on my birthday here in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico, except for Ian. One of my best presents has been spending time with him here the last 2 months.

Ahhhh, the beach.... nothing better than reading, swimming and hanging out.

We very much enjoyed Susan and Scott's visit with us here in Mexico, and we celebrated Scott's and my birthdays, many special people are born in February...I can back this up with the Presidents Birthday holidays, no other month has that claim :-)

Susan and Scott brought vegan chocolate from their home in Maine, delicious!!!

 At night we walked to the local watering holes searching for live music so Scott could play his harmonica with the band of the evening. What a fun time that was, dancing and general good spirits, plus I had a willing subject for portraits! 

Karaoke is Monday nights, and worked out well, very entertaining, as long as I didn't sing.

Our first night out it was kinda cool, as the clubs are pretty much outside, but this place was prepared with blankets they gave to everyone for the evening.

Another view of our beach.

We eat most all our meals outside, at home and when we go out to dinner.

Hors d'oeuvres and cocktails.

Birthday lunch...

Where Joe surprised me by arranging these singers to serenade me at our table, quite the pair!!

I help Ian learn how to drive a stick shift, on my birthday... he figured it out quickly, but not much practice on hills here, it's pretty much flat country. He's making a fuss because I wanted to document it with a photo, I got my photo, and it makes me smile!

Thanks Susie, for sending me this oldie for my birthday!! Great memories of birthdays past, this one was when I turned 40, a few years ago, ha ha, great fun we had then, too!!
