Wiggin' Out

So the first one of my good friends is getting married (up to now, I haven't been a part of any weddings because they've mostly been Joey's friends or people I'm not as close to). Therefore, I got to experience one of my first bachelorette parties. I didn't have one of these (I guess I didn't realize it could be something fun but still not too crazy). Anyway, Erin's little sister threw a fun party for her. She called it "wiggin' out, Erin's getting married."

We all went out to eat and then on to dancing and karaoke all dressed up....

I'm not a huge fan of dancing (because I can't do the kind of dancing people do now), but this was actually fun. I sound like such an old person. Oh well. I did have a good time and loved seeing these great girls!

Neil is 60!!!

Sorry it's been a while again. I have several things to share, but I'll just post in order. We (my sister, bro-in-law, and mom) decided to surprise my dad for his 60th birthday with a party. We waited until the weekend after his actual birthday so that he wouldn't expect anything. Sure enough, he walked into the house, and even after Caiden handed him a piece of paper that said "surprise" he still had no clue until he walked around the corner and 30 of his friends yelled "SURPRISE!!"

Playing the part really well...

He got some pretty interesting things....

But this was his favorite...

Can't believe the poor man has gone 60 years without his own recliner! We're so blessed to have you Dad! You are an amazing man of God and we're sure He's as proud of you as we are!

The Project

Joey's been pretty excited about the project he and his dad have been working on. It's a 1st generation '77 Bronco. Joey's always wanted one of these, and they got it painted and running recently. Here's their first ride!

About Time

Sorry it's been so long since I blogged. I figured it's about time. We had a very nice 4th. We took the boat out on the River and watched the fireworks with some friends and Joey's parents.

Not really sure what they're looking at...

I didn't get any pics of the fireworks because I forgot to charge the batteries for the camera (even after Joey reminded me, oops).

Mike, Leah, Anna, and Caiden also came up this past month to visit and go to the Creative Discovery Museum.

Not sure who had more fun, the kids or Mike.

This is how Caiden occupied himself at Aunt Lindsay's.
