No post. I was swamped Friday. Before I walked in the door to work, I had an email saying that one of our machines was down. It turns out that it was really down and I spent, literally, the whole work day at our other plant fixing that machine.
Onward! Friday after work I came home, mowed the grass, weeded the garden, set up a tent, and chairs. The big party was Saturday! Everett will be 1 year old tomorrow, how crazy is that?!? It is hard to believe. It seems very fast haha.
Saturday came and we woke up still getting everything ready. I got all of the decorations ready. I blew up helium balloons, and tied them to the tent posts and in the front yard. We hung up a couple banners that we made the night before:
Look at that painted fence! 😉
We had about 20 or so people there, consisting of family and friends.
Here is a nice family photo of us, once the sun came out. 😀
Everett is cheesin with his cousin Rory. (my brother’s daughter)
Everett received a swing from his great grandma, so he took it for a swing with his Grandpa Fred.
A couple of my wife’s best friends came down to hang out with us, which we appreciated. That was before the chaos of the party haha.
Here is my wife and her dad. It was nice that he was able to make it down to the party.
We ate some great food, and then opened some gifts. A few people contributed to Everett’s 529 college savings plan, which is amazing. I’m so glad they decided to help in that way. He got a few books, and plenty of outfits. His grandma got him a kiddie pool and some stuff for that too. Here he is holding his first pair of shades.
He looks pretty cool to me!
Who you lookin at?
Next up….cake! Patiently waiting..
Moments before, I lead “Happy Birthday” on my Ukulele. then the cake was there for the playing!
He slapped it apart. He loved squeezing it in his hands before smashing it into his face.
Overall it was a great day for the party, everyone that we thought would be there showed up. Happy Birthday to Everett!
Sunday was a little busy as well. Friday my cousin stopped by and asked if I could help him deliver his jeep axles to a garage. I had softball as well. Well, softball got pushed back two hours due to rain, so I could only play one game. We lost the game to a team we hate losing too but we will meet them again later in the season. I got work that the second game went much better and we beat them by the ten run rule.
I ran home and changed my clothes and had some left over party food before helping my cousin. He basically needed someone to help physically move the axles. They are pretty heavy. Everything went smoothly and we didn’t drop them on our feet haha.
That was my weekend! I hope you had a great one as well. I’ll be back again tomorrow, I hope to see you then! 😀 😀
