A big Happy Birthday to the love of my life. Joe just turned 30! We had a really fun day.
Josh and Ruthie pulled in a little after 6 am. Matt, Christie, Josh, Madeline, and Lauren got here later in the afternoon.
We all had little different things going on during the day. The Wagners, Johnny and I had a game of Settlers going for awhile until lunch preparations interrupted the game. When Matt and Christie arrived the pool became the big attraction for the kids. Joe, Gary, Dan, Matt, and Jake were all participating in the building of a train table for Jake. Ruthie and Josh treated us all to some tasty mango lassi (a delish Indian drink). We had a wonderful smoked pork roast with other sides and such for dinner and then when all the kids were down we played a little Apples to Apples. It was a really nice day. We had such a nice time visiting and catching up.
