Birthday Weekend

I had a great birthday weekend!
It began right after school on Friday when my parents showed up wearing these paper hats from their tour of the Blue Bell factory. They're funny!
They brought a few things with them. One was this oven that used to belong to my Grandma Bushman - possibly even her mother - my great Grandma Tanner. Nate was kind enough to help my dad get into my house and on the base without anyone being injured or anything destroyed.
Friday night I had a little BBQ with the Martins and Collette. Fun times!
Saturday morning, I went to one of my students' baseball games. It was a lot of fun. After that, I was a tour guide at the open house of our new church building. I really need to get a picture of that to put on here.
My parents took me out to lunch and we went and watched "How to Train your Dragon." It was really cute. I had my ping pong party after that and had a lot of fun. Don't ask me why I didn't take pictures. It just didn't happen! Yikes! We didn't end up doing a tournament. We did play "around the world" and had lots of fun chatting and playing the Wii. My parents brought Excite Truck racing! Yahoo!
My mom made biscuits and gravy for breakfast today. They stayed until after church. It's been a great birthday! This evening, I got to go to the dedication of our church building. What a great experience!

Very fun to see Grandma's stove hangin' out at your place! I didn't know your parents still had it. I'm sure it will be very happy at your house!
