Because our families both live out of town, we have to get creative for birthday celebrations. Eric's mom (Nan, as her grandchildren say) celebrated her big day two two weeks ago. Since we couldn't make it all the way to Marion, we met halfway there in Owensboro and ate and world famous, Moon-Lite BBQ.
After a yummy dinner we posed for some family pictures. Eli may look happy here, but don't let him fool you, he was a little terrorist while we ate.
Nan didn't mind Eli's terrible behavior because she was just happy to see him. She very much liked her gift which was a picture of non other than my boy.
After we ate, Eli needed to burn off some energy, so we let him climb around on the tractor before we started the long trek home. It was a delightful evening with amazing food, great conversation and a wonderful way to say, "happy birthday Nan."
