The family got together on Saturday to celebrate my birthday a few days early since Bill is having surgery today! We went to Branks in Sumner for BBQ. They do a really good job. It's not southern BBQ but it will do! We ordered platters of ribs, brisket, chicken and pulled pork (my favorite!). French fries, corn bread muffins, coleslaw and beans rounded out the meal. The little ones were pretty well behaved. They had some wooden puzzles and little John was very intent on getting those pegs in the holes! Very cute! So, the birthday has been duly celebrated for another year. Whew!
