Dallas and I both have our birthday's in April. I am older than Dallas by one year and just a couple of weeks, but Dallas loved to mention that I was two years older than he during those few days where I was 24 and he 22! To my relief we are back to just one year now. We had fun celebrating both of our birthdays. I had a fun surprise when my parents and little brother, Brett came to visit that weekend and stayed for a whole week! Dallas even got me a new gas BBQ for my birthday - or was it an early birthday present for him? - we had been wanting one for some time, so I was excited when he came home with it! This picture was taken right after I blew out my 24 candles.
For Dallas' birthday we surprised him with lots of new toys and tools for the BBQ... just what he needed and I even went to work in the kitchen and made him my grandma's famous German chocolate cake! We were too anxious to dig into it and skipped the fancy decorating, but it still tasted pretty good.
Dallas and I have attended quite a few weddings recently! John and Bonnie were married on April 28th. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding. It was fun to see some of our close friends tie the knot. Dallas and John went to preschool together and have remained great friends ever since. Everyone in the picture on the left went to high school together and were the best of friends. The only one missing is Tyler who was getting ready for his own wedding that was a week later!
Tyler and Shannel were married on May fifth. It was one of the best Cinco de Mayo celebrations! The weather surprised everyone that day with Spring showers and snowstorms, but nothing clouded the happiness of the day. Tyler and Shannel glowed in matrimonial bliss. The only thing that could have gone better was if I had remembered to bring more batteries for the camera! We were only able to take this one picture of such a beautiful reception.
Needless to say, Dallas is excited that some of his best buds have taken the plunge :)
