Birthdays & Families

My son's birthday is today.  Happy Birthday Greg!   Our family got together last evening to celebrate and just enjoy being together.  We grilled steaks and corn on the cob and we had grilled shrimp too, but since we forgot it on the grill, it sort of came at the end of the meal!  And we had Sister Schubert rolls.  Greg, and well all of us, love those dinner rolls and we have them at most family gatherings.  Greg also loves Blue Bell ice cream drowning in Hershey's chocolate syrup. Surprisingly, the half-gallon is sill in my freezer untouched.  Everyone was full and declined dessert.  

The weather was absolutely perfect and we enjoyed dining and visiting together on the patio. What I really enjoyed was the laughter and listening to my son and daughter reminiscing about past times and events from their childhood.  Unfortunately, none of us managed to take a photo to commemorate the evening but that doesn't lessen the memory.  

Greg has been building a chopper motorcycle in his garage for a couple of years now and all that is left now is to paint it.  To paint it correctly, he has to disassemble the entire bike and send it off to have it professionally painted.  What an undertaking!   I've included a photo of him here in the early stages working on it.  Stay tuned for photos of the finished project!
