I arrived at Spies' house on Friday morning and after discovering Lindsey air-boxing with the WII in her family room, the party began!
Ben and Lindsey were fast friends on Friday.
Kelly arrived, and we got ready to go out on Saturday night ... Spies, Moge, & Kennedy (who Kelly calls "The Delta Three") together with Holleran spells "Danger."
The beginning of "The Pasadena Bar Crawl" that would never be ... AJ's Pub. We had planned on kicking things off here ... cut to the next scene, and it's 2 AM. The only crawling we did was getting into the taxi!
This was our Karaoke DJ couple - yes, that is bling around the Naughty on her shirt and on the sides of the pants! Awesome.
Spies with Antone - he puts the "A" in AJ'S. Stay tuned ... this isn't the last photo you'll see of THESE two!
Dig this guy's shirt - AWESOME! Yes, that's Redd Foxx, just in case you were asking yourself!!
This is Diesel. He is singing Funky Cold Medina. It really doesn't get any better than that. Oh, WAIT... maybe it does.....Yep! I was wrong, it CAN get better! This is Moge and Tom singing Paradise City. I almost peed my pants. I think my favorite parts were the fact that these two were PERFECTLY SYNCHED for the chorus ("TAKE (pause) ME (pause) HOME" / "OH WON'T YOU PLEASE TAKE ME HO-OME") and when Tom improvised during the guitar solo. He inserted lyrics such as "Ow" and "Oh yeah" and "Ow ... Too much instrumental music ... oh yeah."

We had to tease Bill that his car matched his bike and his surfboard case. SOOOO California. Dude.

Mom and Lauren in Mom's new kitchen
I definitely have kitchen envy. And I don't even like to cook!
Who gets a new car for her first birthday? Kyla, that's who! From Mom Mom and Pop Pop. And it's her favorite place to watch television. It's hilarious when she leans back and throws her left elbow over the top of the driver's seatback.
Christie, Pipsqueak and Lauren eating breakfast Saturday morning.
On Saturday, my friends Hannah, Brian, and Madeleine came to visit me in Richmond. We had a wonderfully relaxed 25 hours of catching up and playing with the baby!
Hannah, Madeleine, and Brian on the porch
Baby B with one of her zany facial expressions! She loved reaching down from her dump chair to scratch the decking of the porch. Personally, I think she was admiring the paint job. :)

I got to spend an entire afternoon with Andrea yesterday! It's been a year since I've seen her and her family (I know this because the last time I saw her, we lit sparklers!)
