Birthday Celebrations

We were invited to several different birthday celebrations this weekend. 

The first for a friend who was 50.  Her family hosted a surprise party for her.  We knew her husband long before he met her on a Wild Fire Crew in South Dakota.  They have two wonderful teenage children we have enjoyed watching grow up! It was a fun afternoon sharing old stories!

The second celebration was at my other baby brothers house.  They have a birthday week with three birthdays happening within four days.  One of my nieces was 31, one will be 28 and my other baby brother the old double nickels. Happy Birthday Jody!! We had a yummy lunch and cupcakes, with lots of visiting!

I took some photos of the family gathering.

Chance got older too, he thanks you for all the birthday wishes!

  2. What a clever way to pose for a family picture. Yesterday seemed to be the day for birthdays as it was my son's birthday also. Looks like it was a nice day where you were - it was really nice here.

  8. My oldest brother turned 74 Oct. 9. He doesn't follow blogs so I didn't mention it. I guess my boys who follow the blog would like to know the information. That is a lot of grandchildren.

  11. What a great setting for the group photo. Good idea. With everyone's busy schedule these days, how did you ever get the whole bunch together in one place at the same time?
