Belated July 2009 Random Pictures...






































Thank you, Nonno!!!





Tagging along...





There is all kinds of trouble that occurs when this baby is left to himself outside... For example... Exaust pipe soot becomes body paint and rocks become something to chew on when desiring a snack.









































Belated July 2009: Anthony Turned 38!!!...








The Birthday Man, who always ends up working at the grill... Oh well, he enjoys it...






































































































Rollin', rollin', rollin'... Good thing he has thicker clothes on, or he really would have a "Raw Hide"... Hah-hah-hah!!! (okay, I believe I have just dated myself.) sigh...















































NOw that IS a compliment... Back for more.





























































































So, I organized a birthday party for Anthony. It was mostly family and some scattered friends. Nice time. Lots of laughter and fun. The cake was a Zucchini Bread cake with chocolate frosting on one piece and vanilla on the other, as I also did a cake for my Mother-in-law whose birthday was the day before. Yummy food, and a nice "twist" on the evening. For those of you who don't know... the game Twister is really challenging if you are not a child. We know first hand! :-) Great memories!
