And finally, this is the birthday party invitation, can't wait until Sunday...


This past Thursday was son Larry's 40th birthday. We arranged to meet for dinner at his favorite Italian restaurant at 7pm. Unbeknownst to him, Sal & Jackie had also flown in from Canada as a surprise & were going to be there as well. But the biggest surprise was his son Jeffrey and his wife Mindy were also arriving from Montana. Larry hadn't seen Jeffrey since 2003 and this would be the first time the family met Mindy. We were planning to attend their wedding in November but it was the same day as Dad's funeral so we weren't able to be there.

Larry & I picked them up at the airport and arrived at the restaurant prior to their arrival. Bonnie & Larry were there as well with camera's in hand to try & catch the moment. It was great! You can see the BIG smile on Larry's face as he caught his first look of his son. And Mindy is a sweetheart. You did good grandson! She fits right in with all the rest of us crazies around here, lol. We had such an enjoyable evening.

The following morning we all met at the soccer field for Jasmine & Jermaine's games. I don't know what is going on with Saturday's weather around here, but the past few weeks it's been freezing out there! The wind comes up and the temp drops about 20 degrees just in time for the games. Brrrrrr.....Anyway, we bundled up and cheered like crazy. Both Jasmine & Jermaine received player of the week certificates! Way to go guys...

Afterward, Tawnia & Tessa split to go finish their final preparations for tomorrow's birthday party. Larry, Jeffrey, Mindy and I went to In-&-Out for lunch. Mindy had two requests when she arrived last night. A meal at In-&-Out and a lunch at Del Taco. Her two favorites and apparently they have neither in Kalispell, Montana. Her mother and grandmother have a large collection of their t-shirts so they sent $$ along to purchase this years version. Now that's dedication, lol!

We got a to-go bag for Larry, Jermaine & Jasmine who was at home taking a short nap before going sight-seeing on the strip. My neck has been out of a place for a couple of days and I was suffering with a pretty good headache so we begged off & headed home. We found out later they had a great time & they shared a photo with us taken at the Coca-Cola store, very cute.

Sunday is the long awaited birthday party. We are going to have 'An Amazing Race'. Yep, you read that right. The details are all hush-hush of course, but I can tell from the little I've learned that it's going to be a ball. So make sure you check back for all the fun, okay? The last pic today is the invitation for the party. As usual, Tawnia is a great party planner!!!
