My little brother, Jake, just celebrated his 27th birthday! I swear... I cannot tell you how OLD that makes me feel! I do not feel old enough to be close to 30, and I am DEFINITELY not old enough to have a 27 year old baby brother! Jake and his friends went ALL OUT for his big day so the rest of the family headed to Oklahoma City to join in on the fun!
Jake, me, our dad, Alan (older brother) & Amanda (soon to be SIL)

Jake's friends that made it out to eat. I would say this is about 1/3 of the people that showed up!
From dinner, we headed out in the stretch hummer limo to a club, Nova... I did mention they went ALL out, right?! :)

Happy Birthday, Jake!
After Nova, we headed out in this... an RV party bus that holds 40+ people! I have to tell you at this point it is about 1:30 AM... I am still holding strong with all of the young ones! Ha!
stopping at the casino!
Jake and I again.
It was a very good night! I did become very old around 4AM and had the party bus drop me off at my hotel.. those kids were still going like it was midnight! ...soldiers I tell you! :)
Why mom was off with the young kids and daddy was at a fishing tournament, baby girl will play with Grammie and Grampie... or Gigi and Papa. Hadlea is in the process of renaming everyone! She is now calling Grammie, Gigi and Grampie, Papa! Who knows if it will stick!
I do have to say that my parents ABSOLUTELY rock! No matter what kind of crazy request I give them, they always seem to make it happen! I wanted to go to Jake's birthday party, but it was about an hour and a half from where I live and about the same amount of time away from my parents. I asked if they wanted to meet me there and get a hotel room! Once Alan and Amanda decided to go too, we all decided to stay at the same place. Alan ended up buying our hotels rooms, and we all got to stay together! I just love family time and when plans fall together!
Hadlea had her first chocolate shake with
Hanging with Papa in the courtyard!
And swimming with Gigi!
Hadlea even got breakfast in bed!
Playing babies with Uncle Alan!
Overall a super great weekend with the family! We all had lunch together before heading home! We were so ready to get home to daddy! He had a great fishing tournament, but was no doubt ready to get home to us too!
