Here we go...
Friday Night - Dinner with My Family
At home before we met my family for dinner:
We met my parents and Brian for an amazing dinner at Steve Field's Steak and Lobster in Plano. Right now, they have Restaurant Week which if you've never gone to a restaurant during Restaurant Week, look one up and go! It is a great deal...3 course meal for $35 a person in some of the best restaurants in Dallas. Steve Field's had a fantastic menu selection...Filet Mignon, Lobster Tail, Lamb Chops, Crab Cakes, Prime Rib and Salmon/Halibut. Mom, Brian and I couldn't decide what to get so we split the Lobster, Filet and Lamb Chops...so good!!
I finally got some pics with my family...Mom & I
Dad & I
The whole Fam...We realized that this is the first time that we've had dinner with my parents and Brian without Avery since before she was born. We will definitely have to do this more often because we had such a blast!
Saturday - Tim's Birthday!
Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to Tim/Daddy, Happy Birthday to You!!
Tim's fantasy football league was having their draft on Saturday so all afternoon Tim and the boys were setting up their football teams for the season. Apparently it went well for Tim so that made for a Happy Birthday Boy :) After the draft was over, we all went over to the Hale's for a barbecue and then out to the Gingerman afterwards. All the food was so good and we got to catch up with everyone that we hadn't seen in awhile.
Here are the boys playing "Bags" in the backyard:
One of the fantasy crew's wives, Elisa, was also celebrating her birthday on Saturday...her milestone b-day of "30"!! Here are the 2 birthday cuties:
Cass, Cheryl and I
Brian bought Cassie a Congratulations beer for graduating with her Masters a couple of weeks ago...no liquor at this bar but that's okay because Cass isn't the greatest at taking shots :)
Tim, Robby and Brandon...see them posing - this is the meaning behind the pose:
You Can Tri to Get Bi but You'll Get Trapped
Tim Triceps; Robby Biceps, Brandon Traps
Gotta love our Silly Men!
Now add the girls...
Let me preface before we get started on the Sunday celebration. A couple of years ago, Tim's grandma was in town for his birthday and they decided to do a sort of Luau theme for his dinner. This year, Tim was looking back at some old photos from the party and decided he wanted everyone to get dressed up again for his b-day. This year's theme was Good Ole' Boy/ WT. I'll tell you I'm really impressed with the outfits. Take a peek...
Avery and I in our Doo Rags (spelling?)
Trying to get a good pic of Ave with her skull and crossbones and those curls :)
Nothing like a "biker girl" carrying her shovels and bucket!
Ma and Pa Penrod - poor Kitty, we've been telling her to get her teeth fixed forever!
Tim and Mike drinking their 40's
Cutie Pie thinking who are all these people?? I think I'm in the wrong house!
The Old Man...
I liked Ma Penrod's tatoo so much, I had Mike give me one too!
I Heart Tom, I mean Tim...my tatoo artist messed up as a joke :)
Kristen brought this guy...don't recall what his name was but he was hilarious!! Maybe Kevin will show up for Tim' next birthday!
Nothing like a NASCAR junkie drinking a glass of white wine!
