happy birthday, mom!

Today we celebrated my mom's birthday with a picnic in the park.  We've come to realize that this way of celebrating is a hit with everyone.  We've done Easter, Mother's Day, etc. at parks.  The kids love to play and we can usually sit and relax for a little while.  For lunch I made chicken salad wraps.  I have not made this chicken salad in a long time.  I used to make it all the time and I'm not sure why I quit!  It's sooo delicious and a great way to use those rotisserie chickens from Costco. :)

My mom opening her presents:

Chicken Salad

1 Costco Rotisserie Chicken (shredded)
1/2 cup lite mayo
1/4 cup lite sour cream
2 1/2 tbls. honey
1 tsp. poppy seeds
1/3 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup Craisins or 1/2 cup cut up grapes

Combine all dressing ingredients and mix into chicken.  Let sit in fridge for several hours before serving on lettuce, in a wrap, on bread, etc.

It was a WONDERFUL way to celebrate my birthday--I SO enjoyed it! Of course, I just enjoy being with you 4--even if it were in a windowless room, but this Oak Glen park is now one of my favorites. The wraps were a 10! And so was the birthday cake and the WONDERFUL personalized mouse pad!

And that precious card with "2 things we love about Nana:
Cameron: 1. I like our neighborhood hunts. 2. I like playing foosball.
Kendall: 1. She has cooL kitchens. 2. She has really big eyes."
