Birthday Recap

Sorry to keep you & JP waiting… it has been a tad busy around here!

When does this merry-go-round stop???

But back on Thursday, August 6th…..

We usually do birthdays at noontime when we have our main meal.   JP’s request was Subway but I did the override since I was cheating and buying supper out, I grilled steaks instead.  JP liked it all the same.  🙂

bday 1

Presents after dinner included:

bday 2Linux magazine & a Wii game

bday 3Can you read this t-shirt?  🙂

bday 4

A new cymbal for the drumset!  Yeah!!  And a refill on his card for the local coffee shoppe! 😉

After the parade at the fairgrounds that evening, we brought home 2 pizzas for a late birthday supper.  {I had asked Phil’s parents about coming over in the morning.  One wanted to stay at the fair to see exhibits and one asked again, “What time is pizza?”  🙂  It was cute!  And the pizza won out.  heehee}

bday 5The grandmas provided some flat & green gifts (what every 17 y/o loves!) and an old collector pig from Grandma M since he had done so well showing at the 4-H show.
