John's birthday was a total success. What I didn't mention is that we did end up having a mini-surprise party for him. Every Thursday, my immediate family (mom, dad, sisters, spouses and children) gets together at my parents' house for dinner. It's something that we have always done, a tradition that will never die. When it's someone' birthday, we usually dine out all together. Well, my mom had the idea to plan on going out for John's birthday, which obviously is not out of the ordinary for us. But the secret twist was that she invited John's parents, sisters, and grandmothers. It was a great evening. Oh...and he loved the Steelers picture (as you can see)!

Here's a link to the rest of the pictures from the party:
Weekend plans:

John has class all weekend (he's getting his Master's...almost done!)

  • Friday - cutting the grass (which I actually enjoy!), catch up on "Grey's Anatomy" since we missed it last night due to the birthday party.

  • Saturday - laundry and cleaning, church, Valley High School Musical "Beauty and the Beast" (a bunch of kids from the swim team that John coaches are in the production, so we are going to show our support)

  • Sunday - Misty's (John's sister) baby shower...she's having a boy!

I hope that everyone has a great weekend!
