On September 2, Mr. Bird Nest turned 55 years old. Now I know you're thinking, wait just a minute here, isn't Gretchen 60 years old. Yes and I highly recommend marrying a younger man. I get to retire first, he'll keep me in hospitalization and he has a lot more energy than I do. It kind of freaked out my kids when we were dating and they found out when I was a senior in high school, Mr. Bird Nest was in the 7th grade. They thought that was really too weird to even talk about.
Last Friday night Rick and Noelle invited us to dinner for the birthday boy and Noelle prepared one of his favorite meals - ribs.
Here are a few photos:
This is Noelle preparing dinner. Ribs, corn on the cob, macaroni & cheese, baked beans and a Brewster's Ice Cream cake for dessert. Everything was yummy.
This was Rick on clean up detail. Notice he still has a military type haircut.
This is Chloe, just being Chloe...happy.
Nicholas trying to be scary.
Hud got a new booster seat for his truck so Nicholas can ride with him and he got two tickets to see Jason Aldean in concert in October. The tickets weren't on sale yet so Noelle used her Cricket Scrapbook machine to make him a ticket. Clever, isn't it?
