whew! what a weekend!

August 5, 2008

I’m still recovering, thus the late post…but Alan’s graduation was one we won’t soon forget. You may remember my pickle post. Well, those 35 paper pickles were put to good use:

He got some great tips for when he finds himself in a pickle. I think the most popular was “Call Dad…”

Pam whipped up some amazing cupcakes and I had fun making toppers for them. (This is what happens when you post your personal photos on myspace…)

We didn’t think there was any way people would consume that many cupcakes…but I happened to snap a shot of the last two cupcakes before their inevitable consumption…

as you can see, people were having mucho fun…

Aunt Pam was the karaoke queen…she even got Lee Anne in on a few tunes…

I finally got my ride on the Harley…

Just before we left on Sunday, Vayda and Lee Anne donned their Harley gear for the camera… Vayda matches the Harley color scheme so perfectly…if FCB decides not to employ her as a mascot, maybe Harley Davidson will?…I mean, she even has a little black tongue! (and of course, she’s well versed in doggie tricks)

(Vayda was a little jealous that Lee Anne’s shirt sparkled…and thus refused to take a decent photo)

Anywho…I’d love to see photos from others in attendance…I didn’t man my camera throughout the night like a should have…so please email me…(Granny Pat, I must have that pic of Nick and I…I think it’s the only decent picture I was in all night!)

In work related news…I’ll have my hands in paint all day at the Pirate’s House…an update will most likely come tomorrow. Oh and I finally finished my two portraits….although I’ll have to wait until the oil paint dries to post the final works…back to the madness!

I’m not sure I know of anyone that works quite as hard as my Dad. Most people who know him, wonder how he’s able to manage so much and still keep that smile on his face. He is compassionate beyond words, more generous than most, and an inspiration to all who meet him. I am truly lucky to call him Dad…and if ever someone deserved something truly special for Father’s Day…it’s him…check this out…

He finally bought the beast…(which has been affectionately named “Eagle One”)

(Click photos to enlarge them)

My Brosef was the first to ride…you can bet he’ll be making a two-wheel purchase as soon as he returns from a 3 month trip to Costa Rica…(I’m sure Uncle Richard won’t be far behind either…I mean Pam would make for a hot biker chick 🙂

Of course, any such purchase must first be approved by Lee Anne…

I’d say by the looks of that smile, it didn’t take much convincing.

Of course, now that they have been initiated into the Harley lifestyle…it won’t be hard to shop for them…On my way down to Florida, I found this little gem…

Dad liked it…can’t you tell? Now all they need are matching tattoos…(hehehehehe)

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to ride Eagle One…the rains came, and I had to return to the studio…but I had a most marvelous time hanging with the Fernandina gang.

Happy Father’s Day Dad…and please be careful on that thing….love you all mucho!
