Happy Birthday Cowboy

Today is the big guy's birthday. Happy Birthday Cowboy! After his morning playtime with Sadie, we headed to the golf course for an 8a tee time. It's a shame that you have to get up that early on your birthday but it was his choice. He beat me by 3 strokes but he also used lots of mulligans. We played for breakfast on the last hole. He gave me a stroke so I beat him by one stroke. It's a shame he had to buy breakfast on his birthday. At breakfast, he called his daughter. His end of the conversation went like this, "yeah, MJ tells me all the time that if I married her I could have insurance. Don't think that is a good reason to get married but it's going to happen anyways". He warming up to the idea marriage, still need the ring.

He had to stay home a work today. We had a truck load of dirt hauled in but he's out now having a birthday drink. I went to the farm for my niece's graduation from HS. She was beautiful. I can't believe she is so grown up--where did the time go.

Happy Graduation Miss Cass! Here's hoping the rest of your life is full of promise and fulfillment.

I took Caroline to the farm with me. I think she saw glimpses of living out her Little House on the Prairie dream. And yes, I did have to hog tie her to get her back in the car to go back to the city.

Happy Birthday Cowboy!!!

Thank you so much for sharing your family with me. It's been a long time since I have had a day as good as today was.

MJ, I won't let the cat out of the bag about how you let him win today, OK? Men's egos can be so .... fragile!

I'm glad you took Caroline with you. I know she had a ball!

Your niece is very pretty. My granddaughter graduated Friday night in MO. Isn't it awesome to see them make that first major step into the adult world. And don't we feel sorry for what they will be facing?

Oh, and Happy Birthday, Cowboy! :D
