Tom turned 50 on Saturday. We celebrated with the kids on Friday and so Saturday was the day to celebrate with adults. Per Tom’s request, I planned a get together at the White Water Center with our friends and family. The White Water Center has a band every Thursday and Saturday night during the summer. Luckily, his birthday fell on a Saturday this year.
It rained all morning long and I was getting a little fearful that we were going to have to change the location of the party. Thankfully, the rained cleared up around 5:00pm and we were able to enjoy the night without rain. We arrived around 7:00pm and so did everyone else. About 20 of Tom’s friends and family were there to help him celebrate. It was a low key night chatting with friends, drinking beer and listening to music outside. It was exactly what he wanted to do for his 50th birthday.
Some friends sat on the grass and watched the band… Sara Long, Amanda Fairbanks, Chaz and Michaleh Snider, and Ashely and Jerry.
These two couples met and I think they talked together all night long. I think a girls night out was even scheduled. Luckily, i was included in the mix….John and Patty Smith, Eric and Abigail Varner
Tom with Chris Long and Chaz Snider…Believe it or not, Tom actually searched out his “I love my wife” shirt. He wears it all the time. Some one pointed out that “it is like a chic magnet with boundaries”. Very true. I have one too but have never worn it. (a family joke now)
Kristee, Patty and myself. We used to be the “3 Amigos” a few years back. Saturday night was our reunion.
Tom’s dad even made it in town for the event and the weekend. Here is Tom, Jacqueline, and Tom’s dad.
Others than those pictured, my brother, Bobby and Sidney, my parents, and Aunt Lisa and her kids were also at the party.
We really had a nice time. It was so nice to be outside, enjoy the weather, and have some scenery to enjoy. Tom said that he had a great time and I believe that he did.
