~*HaPPy BirThDAy DaDDy*~

There is just something about a dad being a DADDY!

We had another fun~filled evening on Saturday night. My sisters and their families, along with my Mom and Dad and my kiddo's took time out to celebrate Dad's birthday. His birthday was this past Wednesday but we waited until this weekend to fire up the grill.

Sometimes we do get a little out of hand and have to call in the Oklahoma Highway Patrol....JUST KIDDING! My brother~in~law found his way over to the house to share in the fun!

With this great party grill the hamburgers and hotdogs were cooked up in no time.

With the heat wave we have been having everyone chose to stay inside to eat.

We always have lots of desserts. My niece Erin made a wonderful cheesecake. She made up her own recipe and hopes to enter it in the State Fair!

It is always nice to see my daughter and son having a good talk. It wasn't so long ago that they were teenagers and pestering one another.

It looks as though Danny and Dad are busy discussing farm stuff once again. Wonder what they are planning...

Sloan just loves rides on these 4 wheel bicycles. It is all pedal power and it will give you a work out.

All the girls love to have races and you better look out because they don't ever use the brakes.
All in all it was a very nice evening spent with family. Soon it will be time for the kids to go back to school and life will be busy going to ballgames and doing homework. I hope each of you find a little time in your busy days to enjoy some time with your family.

Happy Trails....Ginger
