Dad & Mom drove all day Monday to be there that night after they got engaged. Deborah didn't know they were coming and was surprised to find Mom hiding in the closet when she went to get her shoes! ; ) They all went out to eat together and celebrated their engagement.

Thursday night we had a surprise party for Dad. We celebrated his 21st birthday instead of his 60th. Tabitha just turned 21 last month and he was telling her the story of when he turned 21. We have heard the story many times over the years... he was sitting all alone in his bunker in Vietnam listening to the radio when he heard them say "today is April 27th." He quickly realized it was his birthday and was so excited! He ran outside to tell everyone it was his 21st birthday and there was no one there. : ( Such a sad story! Since he was never able to celebrate his 21st, Tabitha suggested we do it now. Who really wants to celebrate a 60th anyway?!? = )
