The day was just packed...

"They cooked us BBQ. I am pretty sure that is southern for 'We like you.' "

So last Friday was my birthday, and
it was without a doubt the best birthday I've ever had. Thanks so much to everyone who came out to the park!

The day started out with a birthday party at Imo's, complete with balloons and a Transformers theme (thank God I didn't have to wear a pirate hat and eye patch like last year!). The cake and cookies were made by Denise and Tara. Then it was off to the Laundromat to do the 11 or so loads of laundry that had accumulated at the bottom of my closet.

Then back home to make lemonade and pack the car and head to Lions Club Park. This was without a doubt the biggest and best picnic ever. Lots of new folks joined us for the first time, I even knew some of them! The attendance was over 30 at last count. Thanks to Malcolm we had an awesome and unexpected pork tenderloin and to Patti and Marcus for the baked beans, and to the Hartmans for the awesome homemade Nutty Chocolate Shake (my favorite!), and to Denise and Tara for the wonderful desserts. Thanks to everyone for the presents and well-wishes.

When the party started to wind down, some of the gang spelled out "Happy B-Day Bryan" (among other things) around the Lions lake using hundreds of giant glow sticks.

When the picnic came to an end, I found myself sitting at a table at Sonic with some good friends, sipping on a giant watermelon slush and wishing that the day didn't have to end...
