Here is my bonus for marrying Joe. I can share in the joy of watching this little one grow up. This is Drake, when he was born. Precious~
Here he is two years later at his party. We noticed big changes from last year. He is starting to show us his personality. Very interested in how things work. His face shows how he studies everything. The other little guy is his cousin Luke. Luke was born about two weeks after Drake. Such fun for them to grow up together. Last year they kind of ignored each other, but this year they played together. No squabbles about sharing toys....yet. We adults just sat back and watched the entertainment in front of us. They were so busy...each finding new things to do. Lots of new toys. The hits at the party were the toy trucks that made noise with sirens and horns.
The birthday cake was made of ice cream... from Dairy Queen. Everyone had blue lips and the kids had blue mustaches from all the food coloring in the lettering. First we had lots of dips and chips, then pulled pork sandwiches, pasta salad, a potato dish, deviled eggs, and baked beans. These grand kids of Joe's love hot and spicy things to eat...so my mouth was on fire. Couldn't find anything cool like a carrot stick or cucumber ...guess they don't eat veggies.The cake was delicious and cooled my mouth down. We had a great time...just sitting and listening to all of them talk and watching the little ones play.
