Yesterday, to celebrate Tucker's birthday he wanted to go to The Vine for dinner. He did have a bowling party and a sleep over with his pals on Saturday. I got to the restaurant a little early, so sat outside with a glass of wine. Here is the Smilebox of photos. Was blown away when high school friend Ron Loynds and his Sue walked into The Vine! He has a "summer house" up here on the river.

The other couple with Ron and Sue is Dave, Aleena, and their daughter Riley. Dave is the executive director at Wildlife Images...a rescue rehab facility for wild animals in Grants Pass...
Dave's parents started Wildlife Images in 1981.
The meal at The Vine was OUTSTANDING as usual. Dustin brought Tucker a piece of his homemade chocolate cake and a candle. Fortunately for us, Tucker was too full to eat but one bite so we all got a bite! OMGOSH, that is the BEST chocolate cake I have EVER had!!!!! More please!!!!

National Pancake Day
A pancake is a batter cake fried in a pan or on a griddle with oil or butter. Most types of pancake batter contain some kind of flour or cornmeal and a liquid ingredient, such as milk or water. In some countries, such as the United States, Canada, and Egypt, pancakes contain a raising agent, such as baking soda or yeast. They are generally topped with a sweet or savory sauce or condiment such as syrup or a fruit topping. Pancakes are an ancient food; the oldest recipe in the English language dates to the 15th century. Pancakes are also known as flapjacks, griddlecakes, and hotcakes.
