April 15th Mel turned 25 years old! That night Daddy had to work late so Mel and I celebrated by having dinner at P.F. Changs and then after Daddy got home from work we had cake and ice cream. This was a "Golden Butter Cake" that I made and my gosh, it was good. And I don't really even like cake! Mel's big party with her friends is tonight.
When we flew back to San Diego from OKC we barely made it out of OKC before a big thunder, lightening and hail storm hit. This storm had golf ball sized hail in it. Our plane took off and went around it to the south but we were treated to a really cool lightening show! I have some great video clips too!
While we were in OKC Kevin celebrated his 51st birthday on March 28th. First everyone met at Swadley's BBQ, yum is all I can say about that and then we headed over to Cindy and Willy's for cake and ice cream. Cindy made Kevin's favorite, a lemon and white layer cake. This was the first time in years that we celebrated with our family in OKC.
Well at the end of March we flew to OKC again to do some more work on the OKC house. We had no choice this trip but to replace the east fence as the last storm had blown the old one to smitherenes! So now we have this nice new fence on one side of the house! We used metal poles this time so they won't rot like the wood does. This way if a panel needs to be replaced it will be a simple process. We had at one time 5 guys working on this thing! Kevin, Dad, Rick, Russ and Ritchie!
