Bob's Birthday Celebration!

Yum
Bob blowing out his martini olive candles!

We had a great time at the winery last night. We ate too much and drank some good wine. The highlight of the evening were the gifts!

Ashley and Eric gave Bob a vintage cookbook on making hamburgers and a bottle of wine from her recent trip to visit her friend. I had been working on a surprise for Bob since about early February, and that was having an illustration done of Bob at work!

Rick Green is an artist who does personalized character drawings. I emailed him a photo of Bob and some little things about him that he used in the drawing. You can visit here to see Rick's progress with the illustration.

Here is Bob with the illustration! He was so excited about it and commented on it over and over! It is fun when a present makes that nice of an impact!

  4. Oh I hope your readers visit your link and enlarge the picture...so many cute details...loved the F+ and the homework and the assertive discipline. Now I'm wondering if Bob looks a little like George Washington and, of course, the flag flying unfurled beyond the windows...great gift idea. Of course Bob loved it!

  5. Happy Birthday Bob!! We've been in St. Lou for the past 5 days and I'm just getting caught up on blogs. Those hamburgers look yummy on the grill. I could use one of those about now. So, any new burgers in the future???
