Early birthday celebration

Four of my dear friends treated me to an early birthday lunch on April 8, and the restaurant offered me my choice of a free dessert. I chose chocolate mousse (see above, with lighted candle) which we all shared. Delicious.
Can you tell we are happy? One of my friends is moving away though.
Above is Terry in action capturing our mirth. I will add a photo with me in soon, when she sends me one. I didn't take any photos of me, ha ha.
Above is the delicious three bean with lamb soup I usually get when I am at this restaurant, which features food of Afghanistan and the silk road.
We usually eat outside on the patio which is enclosed with high walls, secretive and has large palms and other plants. That day the patio was closed due to a bit of showers, but I did get a photo of it.
I hope each person reading this is having a happy day, or will smile at these photos if you are having a difficult day.

Hope your day was wonderful. My what an exotic place you live - Afghanistan restaurant? I think that is pretty neat. That's a first for me. We just got a new sushi restaurant which I don't know how long will stay open. I love sushi but must admit, I'm kind of scared to eat sushi in our little backwater.

Happy Birthday and thanks for dropping by my blog. The answer to your question is yes, we get to stay in the state park for free. We are enjoying staying longer in one place and really getting to know each area we visit.

A birthday celebration with friends is the perfect way to celebrate. It sounds like you have a lovely evening with great food, laughter and good company. Happy Birthday!

Oh yes! Chocolate mousse for your birthday was the perfect choice - very cute with the candle as well. I have been to an Afghani restaurant myself and am racking my brain to remember what the pudding was.... but can't, it's either old age or I was too full to have one, let's just say it was the later - ha ha!
Have a lovely day and thank you so much for your visits Wandering Victoria with me, they are much appreciated. Lovely to have you along for the ride, today we're on the ferry!

What day was your actual birthday? I was just wondering the other day when your birthday is....that's information a pen pal should have!
