Like A Pack OF Hungry Hyenas . . .

Jan and I headed up to Katy and Landon’s Big Birthday Bash about 11:30, but with a breakfast stop at the nearby Denny’s.

We normally do the Denny’s Breakfast for Lunch thing on a weekday afternoon when they’re not very busy, but Saturday mornings are a little busier . . .  make that a lot busier.

But we both got our usual, Jan with her Mushroom, Onion, and Tomato Omelet,

and I got my Two Egg Build Your Own Slam.

I think they’ve changed their bacon company because this batch was really good with a great flavor.

On the way up to Brandi’s, we passed through several heavy rain showers but it was all clear by the time we got to Brandi’s. And luckily stayed that way when we all headed out to the Smith Ranch about 2:30. It was nice to see that they were expecting us.

Landon’s had two other birthday parties here, and the kids always has a good time, mostly due to the ginormous blowup waterslide they have.

Landon’s party was Dog themed so what’s better than a birthday cake with his dog’s photo on it. That’s Baxter on the left  and Kitty on the right.

Yes, they have a 120# Black Lab named Kitty. They get some really strange looks when they yell, “Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty!” and she comes running up.

One thing neat about the cake is that it’s actually made of cupcakes,

half vanilla and half chocolate. Makes serving it a lot easier and everyone gets the same size piece.

And of course with a Dog themed party you’ve got to have a bone-shaped Piñata, of course.

Lowell had a lot of fun keeping it out of everyone’s way, especially Landon. And when it finally popped, the kids were on it like a pack of hungry hyenas.

As I mentioned in last night’s blog, I left Jan there so she could attend Grandparent’s Day at Landon’s school on Monday morning, and then I’ll pick her up that afternoon.

So it’s just me and Karma for the weekend.

Thought for the Day:

I’m know I’m supposed to respect my elders, but it’s getting harder and harder for me to find one now.
