neverending birthday - part 1

We spent this last week basking in the glow of the newly longer days and celebrating Carl's birthday for quite a few days in a row. A beach afternoon, a day hiking and watching friends fly off mountains all ended in a birthday slash "warming" of our house, an amazing concert by our pal Rusty Lindsey (complete with not one but two shout-outs for Carl's bday) and a day of finishing house projects all made for an amazing first days of spring!!

It was a pretty full week so I'll only barrage you with one onslaught of pictures at a time!

Carl's birthday celebration Numero Uno - day at the beach followed by a fun dinner at the most awesome Cajun restaurant in Santa Barbara. The food and service is amazing and the atmosphere is lively! Anywhere that has the entire restaurant join in a round of Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" is my kind of place...

Cajun Martini. Delish. A perfect way to end the evening...

More celebrating was to be done later in the week. Stay tuned for that!
