The best laid plans...lol!

I had planned to come home last night and upload some pictures from the birthday party; instead, by the time I uploaded the memory card there were storms moving in, and I wasn't taking any chances. Tonight I came home and burned my back up disc.(Always, before you Photoshop anything, just in case you click "save" instead of "save as"!)

It's 3:44AM now, I planned to be in bed an hour ago, but again, the best laid plans...

The party was wonderful, a good time had by all. Football, baseball, bicycles, food, presents, it wasn't too hot, it wasn't cold or raining (until after we were all home). We used to do these at the county park when the boys were younger, then in high school they lost their enthusiasm for them. (Something about no video games, I think!) Now with little ones around again, it was a hit!



Hope you all are doing wonderfully, I'll spend the next few days catching up with each of you!

I'm glad everyone had such a good time. It's such a nice thing to see families get together to celebrate the way you and yours do.

funny how often things circle around when it comes to family time. from loving it, to detesting it, to avoiding it, and back to loving it again. the circle of life, hehe
