Finally a week (practically) of celebrations is over. begining with my birthday last week on Monday, Olivia's through the weekend and Memorial Day on Monday.

My birthday was great. Melissa and I went to a great Italian restaurant at The Mirage and after dinner, we went to see Love. It was a great show. If you love The Beatles' music, you will truly enjoy the show. It is a combination of their music with clips and images of their times and history performed by acrobats, dancers, singers and including skateboarders. After the show we stoped by the Revolution lounge for a couple of drinks. Again, a great show. Maybe
Melissa will post some of the pictures from her camera.

Olivia's celebration began last Friday with a dinner to Cheescake factory with all family (Except for me since I had to work that evening). Party continued on Saturday with a round trip on a limo to a friend's house for a pool party.
Sunday it was another dinner celebration at Olivia's Grandmother's home, also attended by those who missed the Friday and Saturday celebration.

The weekend ended with Monday's celebration of Memorial day. This one also involved hot dogs and hamburgers by the pool (Thank you Doyle's).
Finally by yesterday everyone had to get back to reality and back to work.
How was your weekend?

Mother's Day was a success. I had Melissa's Mom, Olivia's Grandma and Godmother over for Sunday Brunch. We got them Roses, gifts and I made Chilaquiles Verdes. Everyone was happy and had a good time.
Monday, Melissa and I stayed up late playing poker and the loser had to do Tequila shots. At the end of the night, we were both losers.....Not a good idea to mix tequila and poker.
Now it is off to celebrate Birthdays.
Mine is on the 21 and Olivia's is on the 25th. Her Aunts are preparing a "pool" party with some of Olivia's best friends at a firend's house. They are going to get to ride a limo there and back to the house, she's always wanted to ride in one, so it should be a great birthday.
Mine is on Monday. I cannot believe I am turning 42. I do not feel 42 I feel more like mid-30's and I think that is where I am going to be stuck for a while.
Work has been fun and busy. Lots going on in the restaurant business

I am alive and kicking though a bit in pain.
Wor4k has been good-busy. On my last post I mentioned my training which is still on-going. In between we had a crowd of 16,000 people for a hughe conference, so that kept everyone busy at work.
Olivia's play turned out great. All the kids did wonderfull with their parts in Annie. I will be posting a video as well as pictures of the play. I also decided to take it upon myself and lay tile down on the upstairs bathroom/hallway while I had three days off over the last weekend. Today is Thursday and I am still not done, more about that later....
