Allyson, Cynthia, Aiden and I went to Stan Hywet for a garden walk today.
It was so beautiful- the spring flowers all blooming, the grass so green, the sky so blue, the wind playfully tugging at Aiden’s Happy Birthday balloon.
This was Aiden’s favorite garden- the one with the tractors and big machines working in it!
The lilacs and wisteria were so fragrant and lush-
Sometimes he took it in hand and kept it under control.
Sometimes it just flashed behind as he ran down the Birch Allee.
It was so beautiful today- clear and temperate and slightly breezy-
We found fountains …
greenhouses and tulips……
and fiddlehead ferns and grape leaves.
And then – suddenly- tiredness set in-
Tired and HUNGRY!
So we went to Aladdin’s for lunch – ate falafel and hummus and baba ganoush and dawali and kibbee and licked our fingers and smacked our lips and finished off our celebration with cake pops!
Happy Birthday, Aiden!
