Buca di Birthday!

We went to Louisville to have dinner to celebrate Darci's birthday on Friday. We are anxious to celebrate Haleigh's birth day, but she has not cooperated yet. We did learn it won't be long now!

We gathered for a night of Italian treats at Buca di Beppo.

Jennifer had the day off on Friday, so she came to Greensburg and went with us for the party.

Matt and Shelly and their girls Abbi and Makenna joined us, along with Abbi's friend Nicole.

Shelly, Makenna, and Darci were all smiles before dinner.

Abbi and Nicole had fun with the empty bottle.

Darci had some birthday gifts to open.

Andrew enjoyed the brand name of Darci's new nursing top.

After dinner, Darci chose the perfect place for dessert. The Comfy Cow is a new ice cream store about five minutes from their house. Very convenient!
Matthew hasn't been there yet, but he will love this sign outside the store. I agree!
Jennifer and Darci are telling Haleigh that she too can have ice cream if she'll just hurry up and be born!

The decorations in the store are so cute. I especially liked these light fixtures made of old ice cream scoops.

They were all a bit different, and very cute and clever.

The menu has an extensive selection of flavors and toppings, as well as a great list of specialty sundaes. The largest one feeds a crowd and costs something like 30 bucks. We'll have to try it sometime for sure! I almost ordered the "BFF" sundae in honor of Jamalyn. I was thrilled on Friday afternoon to receive an email from her from Haiti. We have been so worried about them since the earthquake, and I could barely believe it when I saw her name in my inbox. We are praying fervently for their continued safety, and their swift return home.

Matt and Shelly ordered a brownie sundae to share.

Mine, of course, was peppermint ice cream with hot fudge and pecans. It was delicious!

Matt shared a bite with Makenna.

Darci is ready to dig in to her cake batter ice cream with hot fudge sauce.

Andrew likes his ice cream in a cone.

Abbi thinks it's good to the last drop!

Abbi and Nicole had a good time together.

And, unlike Matthew, they ENJOYED having me take their picture!!

Before long, the ice cream was all gone!

We headed home with full tummies and plans to return next week to meet a brand new baby girl. Hurry up Haleigh!!
