Yesterday was my mom's 50th birthday. Concidentally, it was also Memorial Day. This seemed to be a good day as we could remember our troops and also have double reason to celebrate.
We surprised Mom with a birthday party and everyone came over to celebrate with cake and ice cream. I baked a german chocolate cake and all the kids delved into the ice cream. Even the dogs thought they needed some too.
The kids enjoyed the swing set and Masen showed the younger kids how to stand on the top (which we quickly asked him not to). Austen hung out in the fort and tried to stay away from the other kids but Ria and Caleb took to him and would not let him be by himself. This was all to funny because Austen would rather be by himself.
Later Jason, Carrie and kids came over and we grilled out. To bad that it started raining so the guys brought the outside table into the sunroom to eat. Much to say, the siding did not get put up on the house since it was raining. We still made the most of it and it seemed that the kids had fun playing together, when they weren't arguing about 'mine, mine mine'. It was almost comical watching Caleb and Tyson eating their corn and their conversation. I tried to getit in video but it didn't quite work out.
That's all for now....
