PTM's BIG Birthday!!

So I told you that PTM told me her birthday was actually tomorrow but in reality it was April 7th. What do you got for someone that has the things she wants and buys what she wants? The gift of time of course! So here is what I decided to do. I took the day off of work to do this. First we met up at the gym around 7:30 and worked out together. I went home, showered, changed and went to pick her up. The first place we went was the Quilter's Garden quilt shop in Fenton.

We spent a lot of time there and had a lot of fun. I will show you my purchases tomorrow. Next stop was The French Laundry for lunch. Here is PTM in front of it.

Nest stop was the Institute of Art in Flint to see the Gee's Bend quilts.

It was an interesting exhibit. Kind of fits right into the whole Modern movement that's going on right now. I have to laugh, as PTM is beginning to really like the more Modern quilts like me!! I think I liked the paintings almost as much as the quilts. What an interesting exhibit!
The next place we were going was Linda's Country Quilts in Davidson.

It was a wonderful day and I had a lot of fun and I hope PTM enjoyed her birthday celebration today too. I will show you my purchases tomorrow, bed now, 5:10 comes WAY too early!!

Oh Pam what a wonderful way to gift your friend - spending the day together! Lunch looks REALLY yummy, but I would have a hard time getting past the "laundry" in the name, lol.

Sounds like it was a really special day with lots of fun. I've gone by the French Laundry many times, but have never stopped there. I'll have to try it. Love Quilters Garden and Linda's, but haven't been there in a while.

Wow what a wonderful friend you are, it sure looks like it was a lovely day, filled with fun and friendship!
By the way, my birthday is in August, grin, will be 74, but you would have to come to NC mountains to spend the day with me, grin.
