Visitors and Return to Shields

February 17

    On Sunday, Becki's sister and BIL came for a visit.  They live about an hour away, depending on traffic!  Becki and I spruced up our little homes so they would look cozy and inviting.

    They arrived about 9:30 and we had mimosa's on Becki's patio.  There was also a lot of gift exchanging going on, as they were doing Christmas and birthdays.
Beautifully wrapped gifts!
Waiting for Mimosas!

Becki made a birthday cookie cake.
    After a Mimosa, we decided that going back to Shield's Date Farm for brunch sounded like a good idea.  Becki offered to make pancakes, but we all decided that was too much work.    Calling ahead, we walked right in and  got a great table on the patio.  As I was determined to get a date shake, I just ordered the butternut squash soup.  Al had a hamburger garnished with dates. 

Me and my date!


  1. Well, you didn't was the date shake? Worth the wait and hype?! Inquiring minds wanna know!

    1. The shake was very good. Keep in mind I have not had a shake for years, so I may not be the best judge. Anything that involves ice cream and flavoring would be heaven. I would definitely get another one! And may tomorrow.
