We're Not Too Old !
My son turns 24 and is having a Birthday bash today with all his old buddies , the theme being "We're not too old". These kids have been friends since kindergarten and have been competing in tournaments at his birthday parties since then.. They make up giant posters and charts to track the winners and losers and who plays who.etc. All the posters are saved and are lying under the bed in the spare room gathering dust to be hauled out and reminisced over every year. The group has grown somewhat with new close buddies added and the fairer sex showing up.My son and his gal moved to Calgary last year, but are back up at Mom & Dads for a repeat of a yearly party that has been going on around nineteen years now. This will probably change as they get married and have kids of their own but for now , at least this year, it is 'on', let the games begin!!! My son has been blessed with a fabulous group of friends and I am so thankful for that.
The silver on the 24 (see sentiment) did not photograph very well but looks great IRL. I left the 'sign' or whatever it is blank, was going to put his name there then thought maybe not, couldn't make up my mind so blank it is:O).
