Blowing out the candles
Sometimes one cupcake isn't enough and the occasion calls for cake, too. (Not to mention two cups of coffee, three cans of seltzer, and a sippy cup)
The birthday girl got her own lawnmower and other lawn tools for the new house with enormous lawn
End of a big day -- Pajamas and party hat

Here's some pictures from my short visit to Columbus over the weekend.

This was the last show of The River tour. Our seats were not as good as the last show we went to in January, but it didn't take away much from the enjoyment of the show. These pictures are terrible, though. If you are interested in better pictures, click here.
The set list was similar to the last show. The River in it's entirety (it's a double album, so it's pretty long:. Then another hour of the hits. He also played "Purple Rain" as a Prince tribute. As you may know, he sometimes takes requests from the audience as people hold up signs. He goes through and gathers them and then decides what to play. He chose two requests -- one I didn't know, and Shauna told me it was some old blues song. The other I did know, but it was pretty obscure from the 18 Tracks CD. Then he called a girl up on stage who had a sign that said that she knew all the words to "Blinded by the Light." He said, "Are you sure?" And then called her up on stage. He looked on patiently as she made her way through the song. Chris Christie was apparently there, and in better seats than us.
Good times! Here is the set list:
Meet Me in the City
The Ties That Bind
Out in the Street
Crush On You
You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)

This weekend was a show for the Brooklyn quilt guild. Here's some of the ones that i liked.
They had a wall of quilts from a challenge. The theme was "flight". This was my favorite from that section.
