Happy Birthday to Jimmy

Yesterday, we celebrated Jimmy's 37th birthday. He enjoyed turkey hunting with a friend from church the day before so when I asked him what he would like to do he appropriately answered, "just spend a fun day with my family!"

The weather was a beautiful 85 degrees so he wanted to get outside and enjoy "World Fest" at Silver Dollar City. He received a Happy Birthday ribbon to proudly wear around the park...needless to say, it didn't stay on for long!

The boys had a blast playing in the kid's area. It was a 3 story building with foam balls everywhere. You could shoot the balls with air guns, suck them up with long vacuum hoses or feed them onto a ladder that traveled up when you turned the steering wheel. Our boys were fascinated by this.

Then we enjoyed the "Feet of Fire" show. Amazingly, Bryce was able to sleep on my lap with all the loud music playing!
Of course, no Silver Dollar City day would be complete without least favorite thing! Someone has to take pictures, right?

Jimmy's birthday dinner didn't quite turn out as planned. Drew fell asleep in the car so Bryce and I ate while J stayed in the car with Drew. Then we "tag-teamed" Jimmy so he could eat a nice "quiet" dinner. Then Drew woke up and wanted to eat, so we all sat together. It was kind of a crazy, long meal, but thankfully, our server was patient and we tipped her well!

We ended the evening with some yummy Marble Slab ice cream.

Happy Birthday Jimmy & Daddy. WE all love you and appreciate you so much. WE are so blessed to have you. You are the BEST!
