Happy Birthday Grandpa!!!

My adorable Grandpa Brown turned 80 on Sunday. My aunt Annette had the great idea to have a birthday party for him. Mom hosted at her house. Grandpa loved the party!! He deserved all the attention he got. He has always served as a role model for me. Growing up he was always fun to be around and was quick to pick on all us 'boys'. I'm very grateful that my nieces, his great grand daughters, are able to get to know him as well.

The yummy birthday cake!! Not only does it look awesome but it tasted awesome too!

The birthday boy looking festive in his birthday hat. Do you notice the party pooper in the picture?? He thinks he's surrounded by idiots!!

Everyone's in the birthday spirit.

Mike and I loved getting to spend some time with Samantha and Virginia while at the party. Those two are at a fun age. Mike and Virginia really bonded!! They were funny as heck playing together.

I think we've got a little softball player on our hands...carrying on the Ford tradition.

Happy Birthday Grandpa!!!! We love you!!!!

Motorcycle Mania

We spent last Saturday night at a small dirt track in Woodleaf. You know Woodleaf right??? Yeah, me neither. One of Mike's client's called and invited him to come. It was some amateurs and some professionals racing. It was pretty fun.

This guy was super good. And he was, I'd say, in this mid fifties. To look at him you'd guess him to be a doctor. Just goes to show that you never know.

They also had races for the little ones.

This kid was good. Usually in the kids races there'd be only two on track and usually one was much better than the other so it wasn't much of a competition.

Mostly the night was accident free. On the last race of the night there was a crash and the rider broke his hand. Word was it was a compound fracture.

It was good redneck fun.
