Today is my mom's birthday. Although it's been more than four years since she passed away, Tim and I still like to commemorate her birthday by doing something she always loved: going out to dinner. She always enjoyed going to new restaurants ... especially if she had a coupon! Mostly I think she loved it because it gave her a break from cooking. :)
We celebrated my mom's birthday at the Summit House in Fullerton. (8/16/05)
So every year on August 16, we pick a swanky restaurant and have a nice dinner.This year we picked the Summit House in nearby Fullerton.
The Summit House is known for really good food and spectacular views of Orange County and the San Bernadino mountains. Designed as an English Country Manor, the decor features carved high beam ceilings, quaint fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling windows. It was my first time there, and Tim's first time in nearly 15 years.
Happy birthday Mom! (08/16/05)
We had a great time, and it was a very nice way of celebrating my Mom.
