Ok, so Pops was away ( and still is ) on business for his ACTUAL 40th birthday. So needless to say, twas a little weird and I miss him, so I am keeping the 40th birthday party alive with 40 photos from it...and another little video.
We sent these two away for the first half of the day, so we could create a little magic...
and then the fun began!
The Grill Master.
Mamas & Babies.
I will get your glasses...and then your earrings.
This is happening...
because of this.
Story telling...oh my.
More story telling!
What is everyone looking at?
the Keener Monkey!!
Jordan decided to build sculptures in our yard with PVC pipe from under the deck.
Serena agreed and joined him.
It was a wonderful exhibition!
Daddy got involved once Keaton wanted to play too.
Our traveling reader, now has a digital reader, thanks to the gang!
Jordan wants to help open the cover for the "Kindle."
Have you ever noticed that's it's often after the party is over that the really good stuff happens? A smaller, more intimate gathering, with the better bottle of wine poured because it can actually serve everyone now. The vibe is of the truest and most relaxed kind. The conversation is more candid and has more depth. The jokes are funnier, and the laughs are bigger and last longer. Sometimes you even get in a good cry. . .
