He's my Dad and I still Love him!

You know how some people are connoisseur's in fancy stuff like art, fine wine and literature? Well my Dad, he's a connoisseur, but not exactly in what I would consider one of the more refined things in life...It's hot dogs people, that's right, I said it...HOT DOGS! I don't tell many people that, but I suppose getting it off my chest now will only save me money from therapy later.

So let me explain this. In Dad's home town there is a hot dog place called Tony Packo's. Anyone who has ever talked to my Dad has heard of it. He loves it. Only problem is you can only get it in stores up in Toledo and a few grocery stores here and there. Well, as it turns out, Old man Packo retired to a place in Florida called The Villages. He too missed his Hot Dogs and opened up shop and my Dad found out about it. So here in is my story.

As soon as he found out we had to go there for lunch....and take pictures of food. Hence...the dogs and emotional scar's for life:

Now if that isn't bad enough, he made me get up in the middle of the place to hold a menu with the logo on it just so he could take my picture with it. DAD..This is REALLY EMBARRASSING!

Then as if hot dogs are not bad enough for you and taking pictures of them isn't humiliating to any young child, he ordered fried pickles...and took pictures of those too.

So now I finally get to eat. YUMMM..this stuff is pretty good!

I enjoyed it so much that after lunch Ashlyn and I had to get up and start dancing. We love this place!

We'll this day was exhausting both physically and mentally.
Short blog this week I know, but I gotta get some rest for my annual Derby Party.
Later Peeps!

Happy Birthday to ME!!!

So I was eating breakfast this weekend when Dad said, Hey gang! You know what's going on today? I was like "This better be good, I'm in the middle of some fruit loops!" He said it was my Birthday weekend! Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!

Went to the bedroom to tell Ma (That's what I call her now. Hold the little house on the prairie jokes please.) and she had a special package from Aunt Brooke. What is in this thing?

Does she know me or what...BUBBLES!

Then Dad said it was time to get dressed and head out to the store to see my pals. So I put on Grandma Mary Ann's new Elmo dress she got me. Am I stylish or what?!?!
B! Get dressed you're going too! He was like "Are you kidding me, really?"

Before we had a chance to change our minds, Meat head was dressed, buckled in and ready to go. I love him.

So after saying Hi to my gang out front and grabbing a morning sugar cookie with them we went to the Deli, had some cheese, said hi to the stock crew and then I couldn't take it anymore....I gotta see my bakery family! I saw Miss Joan and ran right up to her.

She was ready and waiting for me..An ELMO Balloon!

Then they gave me a card and a Elmo doll with a musical story book! These guys rock!

Then it was doughnut time. Jelly filled sugar with butter cream frosting! LOVE IT!

After that I took a group picture with them. Think I found them a Christmas Card.

Then as we were leaving, the gang out front was waiting for me with a special cake just for me. Thanks guys!

It was FANTASTIC too!

Then my family came over to celebrate. Grandma got me this cool book of colors. I am going to be so smart.

Then a number puzzle. This year I am tearing this paper stuff up.

Aunt Michelle and the cousins got me some beach toys. A princess has got to build a castle...:) More on that later.

Then we took a picture with Grandma and all her grand kids. Love you Grandma!

Then we had a cake with them too. A jell-O Poke cake. YUMMY MOM!

The my buddies Ashlyn with her Mom and Dad, Carl, Lauren, Uncle "T" and Tony cam over.
Got me a new grill. Look out Dad, I feel a throw down coming on!

Uncle "T" got me this great Elmo cell phone so I can keep up with my peeps.

Then for the BIG ONE. What could it be?

Oh MY...The Wonder Pets!


After all this excitement I decided to fire up the new grill with Ashlyn and throw back a few dogs.

Well I am Pooped, not literally - Meat Head does that...So after a quick show it was time for bed. Thanks for all the B-Day wishes on Face book gang! I love you all!!!
