Birthday promised

We are headed to Nashville this weekend to celebrate with our friends up there. Joel still says that he feels like he is in his 29's....I guess marrying a such youngin' is making him feel young!!!

And that someone is my wonderful hubby Joel!

On Friday night I had a surprise party for him at his parent's house. It is so hard to surprise him because he can read me like a book. Everytime he would mentioned something about his birthday I would giggle like a little girl, but he said what tipped him off to the surprise is when I called my mom when we were almost there "just to see what they were doing". He said my phone call was WAY shorter than normal. Go figure! It was a lot of fun. We always enjoy weekends filled with family, friends, and food!! (Pictures to come later...I forgot my camera cord)

On Saturday we pretty much spent the day with Joel's family. His brother and sister-in-law were in town with my favorite (and only) nephew Jay. We stayed around the house just catching up. Our plan was to swim all afternoon, but the hail storm kinda put a damper on that! Saturday night Joel and I, along with our class at church put on an Elder's Appreciation Dinner at church. I think they really enjoyed it. We did a luau theme and played games like the "Not-so-newlywed game". It was such a special time to interact with Christian men and women that we look up to so much.
Well, that pretty much sums up our weekend. We always enjoy weekends filled with family, friends, and food!!
