Colorado Trip - Day #4

Today is the big day - Jeanette turns 60 years old!

In the morning Zach and Jeanette made some homemade noodles. It is a Gray family tradition to make homemade noodles when they have turkey left overs (remember - we smoked a turkey yesterday!) - for turkey soup. Zach LOVED being Grandma's little helper.

After all the noodling making we decided to head the bowling alley for some some bowling and pizza lunch.

The kids found all the other 'cool stuff' at the bowling alley that wasn't related to vending machines and arcades!

The boys did get a the knack for bowling as well....they get to use the special ball ramp!

We had a good time bowling....look who is worn out!

Later in the day Glen helped the boys build some trucks. These are the learn as you grow kits from Lowe's. Both the boys LOVED being able to use the tools to make something so cool...

The finished products!

Zach enjoyed it so much he went around trying to find other things around the house that needed to be 'fixed' so they could use the tools. Here he found the porch milk box lid was really loose and needed to be tightened.

We decided to hit up the family's favorite Mexican food place in Johnstown for dinner tonight, then afterwards headed back to Dustin's parents house for birthday cake. We set the cake out on the table to start thawing.....and guess what our two boys did...

Apparently they each took a side and tried to bite into it. Since the cake was still frozen they didn't get much - just the icing that broke off. Dustin found some whipped cream in the fridge and fixed it all up. The ironic part is it was a 'sugar free cake'....until we added the touch up whipped cream!

Here is Korbin and Jeanette right before we all sing Jeanette a 'Happy 60th Birthday!'
