Happy Birthday Grandma Darlene!


 

A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated my MIL Darlene's 83rd birthday.  We gathered at her house for a Mexican dinner and cake and ice cream.  It was a beautiful day outside, nearly 70*, and there were around 25 of us.  It was really a nice party.

  
Aunt Nona and Grandma Darlene visit with Sasha.


 Cary waits for more folks to arrive.




Jason and Isaiah decorate the cake.
 



Treavor is so cute.  He kept reminding us that he would be 16 in 17 days.  He passed his driving test with a 98!



JB, Shelly, Jason and Isaiah are 
talking about something important.



Troy, Tess and Tess's BFF line up for hugs.


The oldest and the youngest members of the clan ...

 James had just woken up from his nap. 
 He is four months old now.



Logen talks to his cousin who is hidden behind the roses that Jason bought his Great-Grandma with his own money.


All the great-grandkids went outside for a group picture.  The only ones missing on that side of the family that day were Jeffrey, CJ and Courtney.


Sasha had a great time too!



We'll be back with birthday #84 next year ... same bat channel!

What a bunch of handsome, lovely kids! Those great-grandchildren are amazing -- lucky to have such a big family.

Oh, thank you, Deb! They are, aren't they? We are lucky, we have huge families on both sides.

What a beautiful family you have, and what great genes. Happy belated birthday to Grandma Darlene, who doesn't look a day over 60!

I love family gatherings like this. My dad loves to brag about how many great-grandchildren he has but Grandma Darlene has him beat. (He has 11.)

Are you looking for info about Tyler Matthews?

The 2012 Army All-American Day Event

2012 Army All American Game Video


Photo Source: Nike "The Opening Brochure" Pages 2 and 3
During the week of July 5-9, 2011, Cary and I were privileged to attend "The Opening", watching quarterback grandson Tyler Matthews (#43 the first day, and #15 on game days) play with 150 of the best high school football players in the United States. The event was held at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. I hope that you enjoy the pictures ... some are better photos than others, but I tried to capture as many kids as I could.

There are approximately 500 photos in these slide shows. They are of the players, the fans, our family and everybody/everything that caught my eye. They are in chronological order. No names are on the pictures, even if I do know who people were.

As time permits, I will also be writing blog posts about my experience as a spectator. Since I still have a lot to learn about football and this is not a sports blog, I'll write some human interest stories as seen through my eyes. That said, Tyler Matthews, YOU ROCK!!!!
