Birthday 2019 Part 4


Hi! Just a few more photos to share from last Monday! I can't believe it's been 8 days since my birthday already! Wow! As a side note today is great Grammy's birthday. She'd be 109 if she were still of this earthly realm.

After finishing the Vikings Beyond the Legend exhibit and tour of the Franklin Institute we talked about lunch and decided to go back to King of Prussia. Yes, there are a ton of options in Philly, but we also wanted to stay out of westbound rush hour traffic. Believe it or not that starts around 3 PM. So off we went! Westbound on the Schuylkill Expressway back to the King of Prussia Town Center. We drove the side area and noticed a restaurant called Founding Farmers.

When you go inside the first thing you notice is the fabulous aroma of the First Bake Cafe and Creamery downstairs. You can eat there too, but we went upstairs to the main restaurant. At the top of the stairs we saw this cool sculpture with pink goats!
And this great shadow box!
They took us to a lovely booth in the "living room" but we had to go through the "barn" to get there. (giggles)
Nonna ordered the turkey avocado sandwich with tomato soup. It was huge! Lots of green! Xyra and I got the New England clam chowder and split the skillet corn bread. Yummy!

Before going back downstairs we toured the rest of the rooms and saw the meeting room was open. The wall was covered in blue and white bunny murals. They depicted scenes from Revolutionary Era Valley Forge, but with bunnies instead of humans! 
Downstairs, we picked out half dozen donuts. Let me see, we chose lemon meringue, creme brulee, rum glazed, maple glazed, and chocolate iced and ordered a white Earl Grey tea to go.

After dropping Nonna at her car we sped off to the mall and the LEGO store. Last time Xyra was there she picked up two Harry Potter blind bags and they turned out to be duplicates of ones we already had. Well, one was a triple! So we asked the associate if he could help choose anyone but Queenie and Flitwick. 
Without opening the blind bags he was able to find Dean, Neville, Professor Trelawney, Tina, Jacob, and NEWT! Sorry no photos of them yet. BUT (giggles) I have a feeling they will pop up in a calendar build this year. 😉

It was getting really close to the start of rush hour so we took off. We got home and decided to pop the Twilight movie in the DVD player. Hey, it's Jacob's birthday too. (giggles) We watched until Franz got home then went out to Red Lobster for dinner. 

Yes, we finished the movie when we got home. Overall, it was a lovely birthday! 

Do you have any special birthday memories? How do you like to celebrate?

Best wishes,
