Alicia's Birthday

Today is Alicia's 11th birthday. We actually celebrated it last night because today Audra had a track meet. The track meet was at the middle school that I attended when it used to be known as a junior high school. (Incidentally, my father attended there when it was a high school.) It is just a stone's throw from my mother's house. Alicia opted to hang out there instead of watching the meet. Here she is playing the marble game with her grandma.
Afterward we went to Charlie's in W. Webster for dinner.
I have to chuckle a little bit because of my sister Martha, who is a fabulous photographer. She would have made sure no one was holding the newspaper in the corner of the photo.

How nice that Alicia got to spend some time with Mom. The photo is great even though there is a newspaper in the corner of it.

How silly, I forgot to say Happy Birthday, Alicia!! I hope you had a wonderful day!

Martha said...

Happy Birthday, Alicia! Hannah was thinking of you.

Priscilla, there is this funny little thing called "cropping" that I often use to remove undesired things from my photos. Is that cheating?

Priscilla said...

I considered cropping, but I didn't want to lose the game.

Hee Hee..... I didn't notice it until you mentioned it!!!!

The rest of the picture is so sweet...who would notice...not me.

Happy Birthday!
I wouldn't have noticed the paper had you not mentioned it!

Well, Happy Belated Birthday!

Priscilla, I wondered if the newspaper was there to commemorate a notable event on Alicia's birthday. I didn't find it distracting at all! And, in fact, what a lovely photo for the day!!!!
