When we last spoke Mr. T was back from church camp and cheer camp, I was back from my Vegas birthday party trip, had completed my challenge of 40 Random Acts of Kindness before my 40th birthday and discovered I was getting older.
We shall not discuss me getting older.
Since then we’ve been just as busy!
First, there was the fund raiser for the cheerleaders – look at Mr. T striking a pose!
And several of the girls were happy when the Shelby showed up!
Right after that I went to our family birthday party for me and the Twin’s. Because you can never have too many birthday parties!
Jayman checking out his gift.
And Joshua just jumping in to help me unwrap my gift!
The winner of the funniest gift goes to my parents. They got me a “Cut Glove”
It is designed to keep your hand safe when using sharp objects.
Which, we all know, I need all the help I can get! (This picture is from several months ago when I sliced my finger open!)
The very next day I left for a four day work conference in San Antonio. I am fortunate that several of my friends are also colleagues and we have fun – but more importantly, they are almost always up to
driving me around carpooling. At this conference I meet with clients, meet potential clients, and do lots and lots of training. I try and hit every manufacture and rep group that is there and learn about the new equipment and get refreshers on the existing. I did manage to get in some socializing time, as well. 🙂
Look! A car on a car!
Check this out! It’s a Pirate Pigeon! We had fun watching him one day at lunch time! Here is BA winning a contest at Coyote Ugly. I’ve never been in this bar, but IT WAS JUST LIKE THE MOVIE!! I even had to duck when I ordered a glass of water – she had the soda gun aimed right at me! I begged and pleaded, and she spared me! (This only makes sense if you’ve seen the movie – but trust me, I was almost drenched!) The view from my hotel room. The strip of water below is part of The Riverwalk Little drink… big straw! I got the straw for my birthday from the bar. Because again, you can never have too many birthday parties!
And this is what we do when we are breaking down the booth but the truck isn’t at the dock yet! I didn’t have the booth, but my wonderful car pool buddy did, and I was just along for the ride!
I made it home safely and had one day to catch up at work and home and then jumped right into the Annual 4th of July Family Reunion! This event is hosted by my parents every year, for over 25 years now, and it while it takes some time and effort to get the house and yard ready and the food prepped and cooked, it is so worth it! We had so much fun! And a really good turn out!
We broke in a new pool float!
Check out my Pinterest inspired fruit dish! I was pretty jazzed over it!
So, that was my last two weeks! And for everyone who invited me to participate in an event or blog hop, I hope you will forgive me for turning your invitation down – there was no way I was fitting any more on my plate last month! But, we had So. Much. Fun! I’ll trade the lack of sleep for all of the memories made!
