Austin turns 11

Our friends, Bonnie, Mike, Austin and Miles came into town for Austin's 11th birthday! That's big news not only because we love them all, but because they're now living in suburban Phoenix! Yes, they drove 15 hrs round-trip so that Austin could spend his birthday with his friends. How Cool Is That?!?!

And now we have a lovely way-station in Phoenix for visits with friends. I hear it's a lovely house. Austin is so excited he's tired (his words, not mine). Woo-hoo!

So, I took some pictures and promised Bonnie I'd blog them, so she could steal 'em. (don't worry, I'm sending her copies of her very own - no law-breaking required). Okay, let's see what we got....

The birthday boy -- don't you just love those baby blues?

Gift opening (see that cutie in the lower lefthand corner!)

Austin & Andy (Emma, Miles & Beth in the background)

Billiards -- Susan set the boys up with a game, then gave pointers.

Dads -- Thomas, Mike & Gary (and Beth)

and very important Nerf gun consults

We all had a fabulous day! Thank you, Bonnie & Mike for bringing the party to us!

We'll be down to Phoenix to have fun with you soon -- prolly in February when we're tired of winter here.
