Hotrods party was a hit...
My BIL and Dad both hitching up their britches at the same time...
now how often can you get that on camera...
 

Hotrod still loves the balloons....
he shares a little better this year...
 

my son did the cooking....
hotdogs and hamburgers....
 

Hubby and Hotrods other Grandpa pitching washers...
 

Hotrod kept trying to blow out his candle before
we sang him Happy Birthday...
his Mommy had to re-light it a few times...
 

opening the gifts was a ton of fun...
he is loaded up on Hot wheels...
I had an awesome weekend...
Hotrod had his first dance recital...
he stole the show...
he had people stopping him...
telling him what a good job he did...
my daughter tapped....
I always love seeing her perform...
her dance partner for years Ben was tapping next to her...
I did a lot of crying at the recital...
first show for Hotrod and Kylie...
last show our Elisa....
seeing my daughter and Ben as adults...
remembering when they were 5 &6 dancing together....
seeing the progress made by my daughters students...
a happy emotional weekend....

How delightful to see him grow up right before our eyes! You may want to make one of those books from your blog some day to capture in hard copy all his growing :-)

What a jam-packed-weekend. :-) Full to the brim, with happy stuff. :-)

Both hitching up pants, at the same time. Priceless. Although your Dad is looking daggers at you. -gigggles-

Great to have a great camera. Mine would never catch something, that fast. I'd "see" it. But "it" would be "gone," before my camera "got" it. :-)))))

so you had the Perfect Week end... i like the shot of the blowing out the candle to early... and the guys pulling up their pants. i need to find the Christmas photo i took of 4 or 5 of our men standing exactly the same way, watching the kids on new bikes, all with hands the same and the same can we go home now look on their faces... i had forgotten about it. that was back in the days of film

So glad Hotrod loved his party!

And some things , like last dance recitals, are bittersweet! The tears are both happy and sad.

Sounds like a good weekend. I'll be posting about Charley's party soon.

Never heard of pitching washers! You are lucky to have so much family nearby, and no one hates anybody!!!
