Cream Can Party...

We attended the Reiner's annual cream can party again this year. It was a lot of fun and the food was AWESOME! This year was extra-special as it was also to celebrate Doris (a.k.a. Dorsy) turning 70! Here are some pics from the evening.

Dorsy & Denny

Nana & Poppo - cheesin'!
(My those are some BRIGHT shoes, Hank! Tee hee!)

Heather & Heidi

Stephanie & Mel Pelkey
(Mel has a karaoke business & he brought all his stuff down that nite!
It was a blast as usual! Thanks Mel!)

My daddy! (Pretty young lookin' 50 yr old huh?! Luv ya' Dad!)

My mom & Karla - headin' up the event. (It's kinda their 'thing' to do so.)

Playin' with Gramps

The crowd

This was so funny - Peytie could NOT leave Sue's walker alone. She apparently thought it worked well as a jungle gym! Sue was lovin' it of course! ;o)

~A little 'backyard karaoke'~

Peytie met a new friend, Shiloh French. They have become BEST BUDS!! It was absolutely hilarious -yet exhausting at the same time- to watch them run around all nite!

It was getting late & Peytie was finally worn out. Shiloh was so sad that the playing had come to a halt. Poor girl... thank goodness there will be many more days to run amok! ;o)

Swimmin' Lessons!

Peytie started swimming lessons this year. Laura takes her every morning. It's pretty cool 'cause her cousins, Luke & Matthew are also in her class. Last week was a little rough but she seems to be getting used to it all. I was beginning to think she lost her 'dare-devil' attitude - but Laura said she's been going off the boards this week! YAY! I plan to take more pics this Friday when I get to take her again.

This was pretty much what she did the ENTIRE time I was there last Friday... she had a death grip on Brittany & wouldn't let go! Silly girl!

Nathan was hanging out in the baby pool with Missy & Jacob. I got this shot of him wearing Peytie's flip-flops. He's such a cutie, always wearing everyone else's shoes!

Cassie, Matthew, Brittany & Peytie - playing a game.

I'm sure glad to hear that she's starting to warm up to this whole 'swimmin in the big pool' thing! ;o)

Fun at the pits!!

We spent a few hours out at the sand pits this past Saturday & Sunday. Peytie LOVES to go! Nana, Poppo & Spencer joined us on Sunday. We had a fun time!

Play time with cousin Luke & a haircut!

What a bunch of cheesers!! ;o)

I gave Peytie a haircut last week. She actually asked me to! I know... this coming from a girl who can not sit still for a second. 'Course, she reminded me of that halfway through. (We had to touch it up the next night as it was a little uneven.) Oh well - I think it turned out alright. ;o)

Surprise B-day Party!

We threw Joe & Dad a surprise birthday party last Saturday night at the Sports Cafe in Trenton. Dad turned 50 on July 4th & Joe turned 30 on the 15th!

I can't believe we pulled it off but we did! They were both COMPLETELY taken by surprise. It was a lot of fun and we want to thank everyone for coming (and keeping it a secret!)

Below are some pics from the night.
