Birthday Wish You Can't Buy

I just had a birthday. I didn't celebrate it at the hands of 5 hungry babies, although I wouldn't have minded.
Grammy Pammy and Tiffany (N8s sister) came with cousins and watched the children while N8 and I escorted family members to the big game.

Grumpy (N8s dad), Rob (bro), Justin (Tiffanys hubby), Stephen (bro) and Sidnee (sister in law) all drove to Boulder City for the BSU vs UNLV game in the limo. All I wanted for my birthday was to laugh. I just wanted to laugh til I cried. (And I wanted to eat at Bahama Breeze.) You can't buy laughter for someones birthday, that's the rub but I think we achieved it thanks to pregame jitters and Sidnee with a camera.

We drove down with BSU flags a blazing out the windows of  the car. (We got about 20 mpg.) Cars with Idaho license plates packed full of students gave us a cheer, we cheered back but they couldn't see through the glass... maybe they thought Coach Petersen was in there. Cousin Tyler, Uncle Bud and another brother Jonathan met up with us at Gramma Katys and we all drove to the game together.

We just got chosen for The Price is Right

The Maniac and his happy cousin. N8 is a mild mannered fellow, but take him to a game and he becomes a ragin' lunatic about his team. Tyler is tolerating us nicely.

From right to left,  Justin, Rob, Jonathan and Stephen some of whom were lead to believe they had just won the lottery

THE RING LEADER she looks harmless enough. 

Do you wanna mess with us?!

I think we just won the lottery

Nope, we just sat on steak knives

No, it was Gramma Katys bean soup again

More Boise fans showed up for the game than UNLV fans, we were mistaken in thinking the weather would be nice

Stephen is right, looks like we won


  1. HAHA that was so fun. I'm glad we could share the laughter!! And I'm sorry Stephen wouldn't let me share the Fat picture. We've been in trouble with him already, Sherry. Haha. Hope you enjoy your free week! See you thursday and happy birthday again!

  2. Quite the batch of blue and orange :) Sounds like a great time!! Glad you had a chance to show off the limo, too, haha. Love to everyone, hugs to those kiddos xoxoxox Auntie G

  3. What a fun night!

    It was great to meet you Sherry and your beautiful family!

  4. I'd forgotten that I gave that book to Grammy for you! I loved reading with Meredith, cuddly times :) Love to all of you, Auntie G
    I see you must be busy, no new posts!

  5. How did I spend SO much wonderful time with you and you not mention ONCE that is was your birthday??? Not fair! Which day was it exactly? You are so in trouble!

    I am glad you look like you had so much fun! Whenever I see the blue and orange all I can think is "Go Gators!"
