Birthday Road Trip

We are in Day 3 of my Birthday Road Trip.  As a Leap Year Baby, sometimes my "non-birthdays" are not a big deal.  Not this year :).  My sister and I are 11 months apart - she turned 60 this year.  So this trip has turned into a dual birthday celebration for both of us.  Here we are with our birthday pie.....
my absolute favorite - rhubarb pie.  It tasted fabulous - maybe even better than that as it was hand made by my Mom :).  Perfection!  (My DD made me a cream cheese pound cake for my birthday which is my favorite cake.  So far I've been spoiled royally!!)
We are also travelling with our "adopted" sister - and here we are in Atlanta with my sister's newest grandbaby.  Such a sweetie.
He had quite a few smiles for us.
And here are my two munchkins - we made a stop in Charlotte too.
We are now in High Point, the celebration continues.
Have a blessed day,
Karen

Happy Belated Birthday! And you are definitely doing it up right! :o)

Hubby and I were married on Leap Day, so we try and do something special on the 'real' ones, and just dinner out on the others! But we just did pizza in on this last one (29th), so I think I deserve some pie now, too! LOL

Happy belated birthday! such nice family photos. That rhubarb pie looks so very delicious. I suppose it is a secret recipe? would love to "borrow" it - as I am a great fan of rhubarb!

Rhubarb pie is my favorite too, what a special birthday celebration you've had! You were close to me too, I'm just outside of Winston-Salem! :) Happy times for all of you, such a joy-filled post.
