Good friends, good family, good times!

"Jump in, let's go,
Lay back, enjoy the show
Everybody gets high,
Everybody gets low
These are the days when anything goes...

Everyday is a winding road
I get a little bit closer

Everyday is a fading sign

I get a little bit closer
To feeling fine..."

~ Sheryl Crowe
The weather turned dark and electrifying, but that only served to move the party inside and most certainly didn't dampen the mood. Guests began arriving around 6:30 and things broke up at around midnight. It was so much fun having everyone over, sharing good food, a lot of laughs, smiles, memories and future life forecasts!

Most of all, the evening was about celebrations - of family, good friends, and the gift of another day of life.

Katie, I think it's safe to say that everyone loves you and what a wonderful treat to have you with us for a week! We miss you, John!

Now we're going to head out and rent a couple of videos, order pizza, kick back and drink a sweet tea toast to this wonderful summer day - and laugh at life.
