Starting a New Trend Other Parents Might Not Like

The concept was developed about a year ago….and yesterday, it came to fruition.

Yesterday, our little Priscilla turned 16 months old…so, of course, that means…

SWEET 16 Month Party!

I know…like as parents, we don’t all need another reason to spend $$…but we had this cookin’ in our brains for over a year.

Of course, Priscilla needed a new ride…all those gals on MTV’s Sweet 16 got cars…so we had to start with a car.

Then, it was on to America’s Incredible Pizza, which was AWESOME. We had never been, and will be back.

She had a blast, and of course, our son, thought it was the greatest place he had ever seen. Go Karts, “Claw” games, and so much more. He doesn’t like to take naps on the weekends, so when he does, we know that means that he had a good time earlier. He went down with no problem yesterday afternoon, ha ha.

Happy SWEET 16 MONTH Cissy!

A Quick Recap from Relays…

From a weather standpoint…AWESOME.

It was great to have my buddies Yamnitz & Gray in, and a new buddy in Joe. Good times!

Best event of the weekend…we found out that my buddy is Dan might have a nickname (that none of us were aware of until Friday)….TOXIC. Great nickname.

You know how you know you’re getting older at Relays? When you see someone, it reminds of you something else, and then your friend says …

“Do you know who he looks like? The Grumpy Old Troll”.

You know you’re getting older and have kids when you’re breaking out Dora the Explorer references.

Other plus side from Relays this year? I still had $$ in my pocket when I got home…oh, and made Metromix…

Bald…pale…and drunk is no way to go through life. Seriously, thankfully we have Dan to just mix up the barrage of baldness.

…and like every other person over 30 there, we lied about your age.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
