Weekend Birthday Fun

What a whirlwind of a weekend full of family time and celebrations. With my parents flying up from Florida to celebrate my mom's birthday and having the day off yesterday to fully celebrate Gary's birthday - I'm ready for another long weekend! One of the best things about having my parents in town and staying with us is that they feed us all the time and we don't have to go out to eat! They make all my favorites & it's the best!! So that's pretty much what Friday and Saturday were filled with! We watched a couple of movies - 13 hours (so good) and The Edge of Darkness (Good, but a little disturbing, gory & scary). Gary & I also got hooked on another show on Netflix - Altered Carbon. It's very futuristic and not normally anything I'd like, but it has elements that you could see being possible in the future and that makes it really interesting. 
The only picture from Saturday shopping at the Wrentham outlets with the whole family, but I busted out my beret and LOVE it!

On Sunday we celebrated my mom's birthday at Abe & Louie's. They have a delicious brunch menu and totally surprised to find out they have a jazz band playing on Sunday's! There were lots of toasts & laughs! 

^A little sampling of some of the food we had^

It had snowed the night before and that made the courtyard in the Boston Public Library even prettier! 
Gary requested a very low key birthday so that's exactly what he got! We started with brunch at State Street Provisions - our first time there and oh my gosh was it good!  
We shared the lobster bisque - delicious! The waffles had ham and cheddar baked into them - the perfect mix of sweet and savory!
Needing to walk brunch off, we made our way to the Seaport where the had a super fun seasaw exhibit - letting your inner kid out on your birthday - nothing better! And only because it was Gary's birthday did I agree to go to the ICA - museum lover I am not! But, apparently since it was a Monday and President's Day admission was free, so win,win! Let's just say I don't understand contemporary art!

Needless to say, this was a perfect weekend! Loved being able to celebrate my sweet mama & amazing husband and even better that everyone was in one place!

  2. What a fun & delicious birthday weekend! Home cooked meals by parents are the best. I love when I go home & my parents make all my favorites. Even though I could easily make them when I'm at home, they're just better when they make them!

  37. Yay for family visit. Looks like it was a wonderful weekend with family and good food. What is better than that? I'm totally with you, I do not understand contemporary art. Every time I go to the ICA, I'm always like I don't understand the appeal of this place at all. Other than the location is amazing!
