Dad's 40th Birthday Weekend

Sorry that we did not blog Saturday or Sunday, but Dad turned 40 on Saturday, and we celebrated both days. Dad returned home from two late night calls Saturday around 9 AM, had breakfast and opened our gifts to him before he took a nap. Ginger and I had Mom pick up the Ice Age 3 DVD set and the UP DVD set. Everybody knows UP is about the talking dogs- I still don't know why there weren't any dachsies, but we watched it Sunday in our pjs. After Dad's nap Saturday, he and mom went to Mass and then to Build a Bear and to Yellow Tail for sushi. Yesterday, Dad and Mom took us to Cleveland to see the house from Dad's favorite movie, "A Christmas Story". We behaved ourselves in the car, and Mom bought Dad his very own Major Award real size leg lamp. It now is in our front window. It looks kind of cool and Dad loves it. We weren't allowed in the museum, but we protected the car while our parental units were inside. Dad was very happy-

Lots of kisses were to be had for Dad. The leg lamp is great too. Mom is thinking of the bb gun for Dad's birthday celebration next year.
