Mr. G's Birthday

Kevin's Dad had a wonderful birthday and we loved celebrating with him!

He received a gift card to Lowes, a Panthers shirt, a Panthers cup and Kevin gave him the grilling tools set from Williams Sonoma.  I do believe he even received a phone call from my Dad!  (which I secretly thought was super cool! ;)) 
Kevin's Mama and their pup Hazel K.
We had dinner on their back deck.  Dinner included burgers, dogs, coleslaw and potato casserole.  Mrs. G. always goes all out!
Kevin's brother and SIL Brittany.  She's due 11/18/11.
Brittany made a cake for dessert and they also made homemade black cherry ice cream.  I don't normally like cherry things but this was delish.  Have yall ever made your own ice cream?
Kevin and I always enjoy staying after dinner to chat with his parents for awhile.  I left their home around 9:45pm to head back to Charlotte.  Kevin's office is in his hometown so he ended up spending the night at his parents!  Made the most sense instead of driving 45 minutes each way!

I'm so thankful it's Thursday.  Tonight is my one night to do a million catch up things at the house after a short run.  We have a big weekend to look forward to!

PS - did anyone get their shipping confirmation email from Lilly?  I got mine at 3am this morning.  I was wishing my box shipped earlier because it has a dress in there I'd love to wear to a wedding this weekend!  We'll see how speedy it gets from Philly to Charlotte! ;)


  1. I got mine at 3:00 this morning, luckily I don't need anything til next weekend...I can't wait for it to get here though!

  2. Homemade ice cream was a tradition growing up. I always looked forward to it. We would put fresh strawberries in it.
    Have fun this weekend!

  3. Fun Fun...using a crab Tervis Tumbler right now! xx

  4. Your dad called with birthday wishes ... that is SO sweet! It's so special when the families come together.

  5. I hope my Lilly loot gets here soon too! Looks like a fun time and that ice cream sounds delish!

  6. That is too cute that your dad called Kevin's dad to wish him a happy birthday!
