Bob's Birthday!

Tom, Mom, Bob and Rob
Sunday was not only Easter, but it was also my (Rob) father-in-law's birthday. Tom's step-dad Bob turned 72, and we wanted to make it a day to remember, but it turned out even more special. We decided that we would take him and mom out to dinner, but couldn't decide where for days, and then couldn't find a place that was open until we settled on our favorite chinese restaurant in Crofton, the Fusia ( They have great food, great service and are very friendly.
 - The doors opened at 12 noon, and we were there right when the restaurant opened. In fact, for the 40 minutes or so we were there, no one dined there (but there was a LOT of takeout going on).
Bob's birthday celebration had the entire restaurant!  It was a wonderful lunch, and we all came back to our house for cake that I made in the morning. Yes, I also colored 4 eggs to have a centerpiece for Easter.

Bob was surprised all the candles stayed lit!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
