We celebrated Lily’s 2nd birthday today (Saturday). The storms that raced across western and middle
Corey had rented an inflatable “bouncy house” and the kids loved it.
The tradition Tia and Corey began last year on Lily’s birthday was to have everyone party on the front lawn. With a pass-thru window from the kitchen, everything was handy right on the front porch. Tables were placed in the front yard, some in the shade, and Corey prepared the hotdogs!
Naturally, as do most kids these days, Lily was showered with lots of gifts of clothes, toys, and money!
Her Grandmother Connie (Corey’s mom) and Tia (Lily’s mom) stood capturing all the activities with movie cameras, while I snapped away with my still camera.
Most of the older folks at the party are from Connie’s family, and they are the ones I used to share events like this with when Corey was little. It is great that we all get along, and that I can again enjoy her dad, her uncles, and aunts again. Even my old buddy Bill Powers (black shirt in the porch shot) was there and we reminisced about our college day fun, and how we used to race riding lawnmowers!
So we all thanked Dora the Explorer (the cartoon character) for stopping by and making it a great birthday for Lily!
Oh yes, we would like to thank the people down by the lake playing AC/DC so loud for us. Since they are one of Corey’s favorite groups, it added to the overall enjoyment!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE LILY!
