Celebrating Life and Friendships

Almost every year, my sister's family and ours have celebrated our 2nd born boys' birthdays, together. They're only a day apart. They look about as much alike as my sister and I. Golden and dark. We are so grateful for these chances which go too quickly, to be together. I can't believe they're 14 already! I think I'll post some pics of their previous birthdays on the 4th of July. (Dex's actual birthday!) We hadn't been to Organ Stop Pizza for years. The kids didn't even remember it. So we also invited some friends so the kids could say goodbye before leaving for North Dakota today. Sob! It was a fun night. Hard to talk, fun to listen and laugh. Thanks for coming Anviks, Langakers, Greggs, Tutens,Shepherds and Rays and celebrating!
