David’s Birthday Weekend

Posted on April 17, 2011 by under Events.    

We started David’s 57th birthday celebration by taking him and Donna to Tanganyika Wildlife Park. Neither of them had been there before.

After Tanganyika, we treated David and Donna (and Misty, who joined us also) to dinner at Pacific Coast Pizza. It’s their favorite pizza joint.

We gave David his birthday gift at dinner: Close Encounters of the Third Kind 3-DVD boxed set on Blu-ray. He was surprised because he thought the trip to Tanganyika was his gift. It was actually a trifecta: the Blu-ray, Tanganyika and dinner at PCP. 🙂

The celebration continued on Sunday afternoon at Orange Leaf. David and Donna’s treat.

I thought it was an awesome birthday weekend. I hope that David had as great a time as the rest of us. His opinion of the weekend is ultimately what matters most, since it was his birthday weekend. 😉
