Are you celebrating today? Happy day!

Today is Cinco de Mayo and it also happens to be N’s birthday. He is working today so we celebrated his birthday yesterday.

n-feeds-deer-may-5-2008We headed out to the Grand Canyon Deer Farm that is just west of Flagstaff on old route 66, then we stopped in at Pine Country Restaurant where they are famous for their yummy pie. We had a nice day out and about then we headed back into Flagstaff, stopped at Bookmans to trade in some stuff and get some movies.

Once we got home from our outing N opened his awesome green friendly birthday gift. I made a red velvet cake (from scratch) for N’s birthday and my famous moist roasted chicken for dinner. We had a very nice day together. I snapped some photos to share with ya!

Here is a photo of the red velvet cake I made, yes it was from scratch! Woot, go me!

Here are some photos of the deer and other animals at the deer farm.

    Oh, your red velvet cake looks delish! Happy birthday to N! That was a neat gift you got him – I’ve never seen or heard of one of those but it’s wonderful and I hope the technology leads to bigger and better things too! The deer farm looks like a lot of fun – I see an alpaca in there too – yay! 🙂
