The Latest

Last weekend we had a big birthday bash for my mother-in-law and father-in-law. Their birthdays are only a couple of weeks apart, and they both turned 60 this year! (Marilyn, I know you'll want to thank me later for announcing your age to the world)

So in honor of their 60th birthdays, the children (and children's spouses) threw them a surprise party complete with bbq, balloons, and close friends. As usual, I forgot my camera so I have no pictures to share, so you'll have to take my word for it that we had a great time. And believe it or not, they were quite surprised. No one accidently spilled the beans beforehand.

Unfortunately, some of us caught some viruses over the weekend and haven't exactly felt up to par this week. I got some sort of nasty throat deal while Wava (my sister-in-law) has had a stomach virus! Ugh. Anyway, I'm feeling better today thanks to some antibiotics. And it's a good thing since Brian and I are flying to Phoenix, Arizona tomorrow for a 5 day conference! I'd hate to be feeling bad during that!

I'm really excited about this conference. It's put on by PAO (Professional Athletes Outreach). I don't know a lot about it because I've never been. I do know that we'll be learning about what it means to be a Christian while also being a professional athlete, finances, the Bible, and there's even praise and worship time too I think. The resort where the conference is held looks pretty sweet too. You can check it out at www.carefree-resort.com Brian and I were put in contact with a wonderful man who likes to sponsor one couple every year. So we are fortunate enough to go for free! What a blessing!
