Dad's Birthday

Dad's birthday was Wednesday so 
we all went out to celebrate. 
Dad made a mistake by telling us
not to embarrass him.  The whole 
restaurant found out it was his
birthday.  He just loved being 
the center of attention. ;-)
Happy Birthday, Dad!!

Bernie & Devanne Visit

Bernie and Devanne came to visit during Spring Break...
and wouldn't leave. ;-) 
The little girls were excited about
hanging out with the older ones.

The best part about bowling?
The snazzy shoes.
Aren't they beautiful?!
We noticed the talent this man had while bowling.
My dad struck up a conversation with him and
 realized he had a very fitting name. Mr. Bowling.
Mr. Bowling was quite entertaining with all his strikes!
We put our names in a drawing for a free pizza.
You would have thought with all the people
we had there we would have won! 
Team 1 & Team 2 We won't say who won
or Peter & Tabitha might feel bad. :-)
Bowling's fun, but a little tiring after 5 hours straight!
 It was unlimited bowling so of course we had to stay til
 they closed at 2am!  We were a tad bit sore the next day! 
Pretty proud of his bowling skills.
A trip to Ann Arbor wouldn't be complete
without a stop at Blimpy Burger!
This picture was taken right before Tab got yelled at by
some random lady.  I guess staring is not always the
best thing to do, especially when it's followed by
 whispering. :-)  It didn't seem to matter that she was
not the one being stared at, but rather the odd looking
 man next to her with the awesome looking mustache. 
Lyd gives a thumbs up to this guys grilling skills. 
Hopefully she took note, considering everything
she grills turns out as black as coal. :-)
Devanee was quite impressed with the U of M Law Quad.
Dad took all of us to breakfast Friday morning.
We were all up and on our way by 8:30!
 That's impressive! :-)
Bob loved having Bernie here!  Quite obviously the
feelings were not mutual.  I think by this point
Bernie just wanted to go home. :-)

Some people don't get out much. :o)
Some of the wrestling matches were
 pretty intense but entertaining.

We had so much fun with you guys!  Come back
when you can intentionally stay longer. :-)

Ladies' Prayer Meeting

Pam & Britany Mills did a great job
 organizing the ladies' prayer meeting
this month.  They did an "Italian" theme.
Bob wasn't sure about the clapping during the songs.
A little too charismatic for her. :)
John always seems to show up at the ladies' prayer
meetings.  Maybe the free food?  He decided to take
advantage of the romantic Italian setting and get
a little one on one time in with Abby. :)

You both did a great job!
Thanks for making the night so fun! :)

Family Reunion

We had a little family reunion on oovoo tonight!
Isn't technology awesome?!?  Abi seems to think she's
part of our family... which she is. :-)  We had a great time
 catching up with everyone.

West Coast Baptist College

Rebekah flew out to California to visit
  West Coast Baptist College last week. She also
had an opportunity to speak to the students
and give her testimony. They had this picture
 up on their website as "Photo of the Day."

Spring Recital

The girls had their spring recital last week.
They did a beautiful job! :-)

They thought it was pretty special
 that they each got their first rose from Dad.

Tabitha Graduated!

Tabitha graduated from Cosmetology school last week
and is extremely happy about being done!

We're convinced that Tab's favorite part about being
a cosmetologist is that she gets to be in complete
 control.  If you're in the chair, you better hope 
she's on good terms with you, she's gotten her 
sleep and has had a good meal!  Here are a 
few products of her getting even. :D

It was fun having Tabitha go to a school that was
in the area. We all enjoyed stopping in to see
her while getting pampered for great
prices with excellent service! :-)
