Birthday Weekend

What a weekend.

Enjoyed the Sweet Peas very first ever birthday. She had a wonderful time with it all. The Wife made a yummy pound cake which was thoroughly enjoyed by all, especially our little growing daughter.

We all trekked up to the big mall to meet my folks and my sisters family for a quick meal for Nana weekend. They haven't seen the kiddos for awhile, so the amazing growth of both was duly noted.

We're going to have a big joint birthday for the two so that we can get as many of both families together as we can, as well as a few friends. Our house is getting Spring cleaned for that event.

We had a very nice thunderstorm that ended with a hailstorm. Pretty good sized ice cubes, but no damage was done. Here's a group of hail stones just after the fall.

In other news, the Swine Flu (like June) is bustin' out all over! 40 cases in states peppering the country. Lots of panic and serious tones from the experts, but since it has only killed two people in the last thirty years, including an outbreak in 1976... well, I'm not going to get my panties in too much of a bunch over it. Just remember to wash your hands and cover when you sneeze or cough. And as the CDC recommends... Stay away from sick people!

OK, time to keep cleaning!

More Later

Ok, I don't know if I'm more disturbed by the idea of a swine flu epidemic, or the image of your panties in a bunch., I'm sure. It's the panties.
