Back from a wonderful weekend with family in Atlanta. On Saturday, we took son #2 out for a belated birthday dinner at our favorite restaurant. It is called the The Brick House in Decatur. My husband and sons are fancy shmancy beer afficianados and they have a gazillion different drafts and bottled beer. I, on the other hand, love wimpy beer! Just give me a Bud Light with lime and I am a happy gal! But, alas, I cannot get wimpy beer there, so I get Reissdorf Kolsch -- it's tolerable! The food is fabulous and they have the best appetizers. My favorite is a homemade Bavarian hot pretzel with spicy, grainy mustard! Yum!

The next day, we drove over to see our son, daughter in law and grandbaby, Caroline and took them out to lunch. She is now just over 2 weeks old and this was her 1st time at a restaurant and she didn't make a peep. Here is my favorite photo I took yesterday:

Using this week's card sketch from OWH Stars & Stamps challenge, I created a birthday card. Here is the sketch:
