singing happy birthday!
Oh gosh, it feels like I have quite a long backlog of posts to put up, but it’s really just a good few. First off, we recently went to the beach to celebrate Greg’s mom’s birthday. We spent her special day in the most loveliest of nearby towns, Historic Lewes, in Delaware. Lewes is the first town in the first U.S. state of Delaware. It was founded in 1631.
We had a great time touring shops — my favorite being the local fabric shop, the yarn shop, a quaint children’s toy store, and an awesome antique shop. Also had lunch at the tasty Striper Bites Bistro.
We also drove through Shipcarpenter Square — an awesome, awesome neighborhood in downtown Lewes. The idea behind this neighborhood was conceived in the 80’s by two men who decided they wanted to transport homes from all across the country dated between the 1700’s – 1800’s to this neighborhood. Which means the neighborhood is filled with the most quaintest homes imaginable. Just loved it!

and this was also awaiting dhara at her grandma’s house… a BIG BOOK version of “Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?”
fully equipped with leather toy animals for each animal represented in the book — can anyone say, awesome?
For mom’s birthday, we gifted her with a handmade ipad cover from an Etsy shop called Kimoley Bags. Dhara gave her a copy of the children’s book, “41 Uses for a Grandma“, by Harriet Ziefert. She loved both! To top it off, Dad bought the tastiest carrot cake ever from a local restaurant! It was oven warmed and oh so rich! I wouldn’t mind a piece right about now.
