26 Years Young, or Old, or Closer to Dying!

So as of April 22nd I am now 26 years old! It's one of those birthdays that's not really significant. The only realization you come to is that you're now closer to 30 than you are 20 which is kinda crazy, but again, NO BIG DEAL. Pictured here is a silly little thing that the members of my family made me wear during Neena's baby shower...which was on my birthday. I don't recall ever in my entire 26 years of living ever being forced, or willing wearing such a silly little hat...but as you can clearly see, I lost. It was sprung on me...Like A buck during rut going after the hottest doe...I was totally unaware of the schemes of my wife and her mother. They, like hunters in a blind, shot me when I least expected it! Usually I'm pretty aware of others evil scheming but for some reason I was caught off guard. They say your senses weaken with age...I'll agree to that for on this day...I was taken down. Now I refused at first, but one evil-eye look from a very pregnant and lovely wife...it's like shot to the heart. I went down, right where she shot me.

After I was so ruthlessly taken down and forced to wear a silly little hat at a party that wasn't for me...ON MY BIRTHDAY. I schemed myself and talked my way into getting to eat at the man shack of all man shacks...BIG BUCK. This was my first trip to heaven and I gotta say it's quite nice and I plan on returning whenever I'm back in the great state of TEXAS (all other states may bow down in humble submission). I was treated to a 22 ounce specially seasoned New York Strip steak, baked potato, and a trip through Bass Pro Shop which is joined to MAN LAND.

Another part of my birthday was getting to go to a Ranger Game. This has become sort of a birthday tradition for me since Neena took me to my first game when we were first dating some 7 years ago. The Rangers played the A's and won 7-0. The crazy thing about the game, besides it taking the Rangers 5 pitchers to complete the shut-out, was that so many people I knew were at the game! The kimberlins, Thortons, and Crawford. Craziness...I wonder who else was there?

All in all the birthday weekend was a BLAST! But even cooler than my birthday...was getting to see such AMAZING love poured out to our family and the much anticipated birth of our first child. We were thrown, as you already know, a baby shower and we were given SO MUCH STUFF.
Here is a picture of about 1/3 of the gifts given at our first of probably 3 baby showers! My favorite gift was a baby quilt hand sewn by one of the ladies at Neena's church. You can see it at the bottom right of this pic.

We had a great weekend! Awesome birthday, and Even better time with friends and family. Until next time!

Happy belated birthday!!! Loved the silly hat and I'm sure your trip to Man Land made up for all of it. : )

Looks like the baby shower was fun too. So glad you had a great trip to Texas, but glad y'all are back!

Happy belated Birthday! I didn't realize that yours and Robby's birthday are just a day apart.

Glad you guys had a good shower and a fun time in Tejas ... wish I could visit again, soon. I think I'll skip out on Man Land, though! ;) Sounds too thrilling for me.
