A storm in honor of you

The weekend before last we drove up to the farm in Indiana for Mister's birthday. We had a wonderful, fun and relaxing weekend! I'm sure Mister enjoyed himself since he woke up a wee bit worse for the wear the next day. Really you can do worse than BBQ, beer, fireworks, strawberry shortcake and great company for your birthday.

But things weren't all rosy when we first woke up that Saturday. It looked like Mother Nature was throwing a storm in honor of Mister and his impending age. We woke up to this...

I was impressed. I think there's gonna be that 'wow' factor to Spring out on this side of the country. Thunder and lightening, oh my! This particular storm blew over in about two hours, and by early afternoon we were flying kites.

Seriously. Flying kites.

Like I said, it was a good day! Such a good day that I forgot to take pictures of most of it. Boo.

Cousin Ronnie, who is famous for finding four leaf clovers, presented me with this little gem. I was so excited! I've wanted one since their fabled tales on the first grade playground.

We're supposed to be going to the farm for a week the beginning of May. I can't wait.

'til next time....
