I guess when you have extended family on both sides that live close by (which is awesome) you are celebrating birthdays nonstop.
That's a happy circumstance, right?
Tonight it was Ray's turn.
He turned the ripe old age of 55.
(It's a dirty job but somebody's gotta do it).
Besides eating this delicious chocolate cake (that we have become oh so familiar with at Backus birthday parties), we....
...played with cousins,
ate mountains of rice,
listened to Zack's mad guitar skills,
and befriended the horsies across the street.
(Forget a dog, we might just need a horse!)
When we arrived back at home, we were greeted by a new house guest:
Right on the front porch.
Hope he doesn't stay too long.
Hope your Sabbath was wonderful.
