Pie for dinner

Another day, another birthday. Clayton and Jen have birthdays one day apart, so today it was Clayton’s. It makes it easy to celebrate.
I thought back to the day he was born, he was so little, so sweet, such a head full of wild hair. I held him when he was first born but then he had some sort of problem and the staff would not let him out of the nursery for a couple of days. We got him home soon and now he is the tallest of all of us, still sweet but the hair is short.
We went to the beach in the morning, thinking that it wouldn’t be so windy. Well, it was just as windy as before.
Clayton brought a kite to fly. The kite was fine but the gusts were not steady and the kite would crash. Fortunately, the kite was made for kids so crashing wasn’t a problem. I had to laugh when Fynn, the youngest, would try to hang onto the tails as if he was trying to fly with the kite
From the beach, we went to Tillamook for birthday ice cream. Cheese sandwiches were good but really cheesy. The ice cream was divine.
Christabel was told about a pie contest to be held at UCLA this Sunday, so we bought apples and ingredients for 2 pies, 1 regular crust and 1 gluten free. I told her to set herself apart with an added ingredient, or just something a little different.
Christabel is amazing, she mixed the ingredients without a recipe. Using an empty champagne bottle for a rolling pin, she rolled out the crust. The crusts were crumbly, but baked, well, they were the best crusts I’ve had.
With apple pie and more champagne for dinner, we all added our comments on her pies.
On Sunday, “Break a Leg, Christabel”!
