One day I walked around the corner and found this. Travis thought he would be more comfortable. Petey sat here for quite a while. He must have enjoyed it!
October 11 was my mom's birthday and Daryle's dad's birthday. We call them the Birthday Twins. I made them each their very own birthday cake this year.
We went out to dinner then came home for cake and ice cream and a couple of presents. Of course the boys had to play a round of Candy Land with Grammy first since we were all still full from dinner.
The boys picked out this very soft 49r's blanket for Grandpa.
We got Grammy a gift card for the movies. (Then the boys asked her to take them with her. lol)
Happy Birthday Grammy and Grandpa!!!
Years ago when we lived in Memphis we used to go to the Redbird's games. They are the farm team for the Cardinals. We happened to be at the opening game in their new stadium. This had to have been around 1999/2000/2001 or so. We saw this hanging in the team shop one day and sure enough you can see Daryle very clearly. So, I bought it for him but we never did get it framed because it is so large. (It's like 4 feet long) Fast forward to 2013. Daryle has a friend at work who does wood working and Daryle happened to mention this print we had. Well, his friend custom made a beautiful frame for it and now we are able to hang it up. If you ever come over we can show you right where Daryle and I are standing. (You can only see the back of my head!)
"Mom, come take a picture! Petey and I look really cute!!" Of course they did.
There has been a lot of excitement lately. Daryle has a good friend, Mark, whom he has known since Jr. High. Mark was the best man at our wedding. So, I have known Mark ever since I have known Daryle. That would mean since I was 18. Well, Mark's son Cody and his fiance just had a baby boy earlier this month. Does this mean Daryle and I are old enough to be GRANDPARENTS??? Well apparently we are since our friends who are our age just did! Anyway, baby Marshall is just adorable as can be. Cody lives around here but Mark and his family live in Oregon. They drove down to meet their new grandchild. I have a feeling we will be seeing more of them over the years.
This picture is Bill with Mark and Daryle and then their kids.
Connor got a little jealous that his daddy was holding a baby. Then he asked if he could have a baby brother. I told him Marshall can come and visit any time. (Connor mostly likes having somebody around who is younger than him!!)
I love this picture. Three generations going on here. It's great to have friends who are more like family.
It wouldn't be Mark and Daryle without a prank going on... poor Cody! New Dad initiation!
Next stop: Halloween!!!!
