So we hurried up there, changed into our swimsuits and immediately began relaxing. Louis and Michelle cooked a ridiculous dinner for the Father's Day feast (beef tenderloin, baked potatoes, corn on the cob and French bread). That night the Mizerany boys stayed up chatting, while the rest of us pooped out somewhat early. The next morning we enjoyed a breakfast feast, some swimming and a ride on the waverunner before we headed back to Birmingham. Walker and Beckham both swam in the lake, so it was a BIG accomplishment! We hated to cut our weekend short, but we needed to take Bennett and Preston to camp for the week.
|Even Beck wanted in on the fun!|

Thursday, June 22nd, was my birthday. Flanked by two big celebrations, we decided to lay low and grill steaks...just the three of us.
Friday was the pinnacle of the week. Steve had arranged for Walker to spend the night at his parent's and invited folks to join us at Gian Marco's for a delicious dinner. We started off at home for a pre-dinner cocktail, and then headed over. After a couple bottles of wine, and many calories....we took the party to Leah and Fletcher's. Steve had purchased a cake, and they all surprised me with singing "Happy Birthday." I thought he spent too much on the cake, so I chewed him out, but then the party continued.
Sadly the next morning came SOOO quickly with a VERY early pick-up time at Camp Cosby. However, what a week! I still can't believe I am 45 years old, but I feel so content and happy with where I am so no hard feelings or anxiety about my age. Thank you Miz for spoiling me, not only on my birthday, but every day. I am a lucky person to have such loving family members, beautiful, healthy children and wonderful friends.
