Wesley and some of his friends got together to go to the Jr./Sr. Prom Saturday night. Wes prepared a fantastic dinner for them to enjoy. He prepared Chicken cordon bleu, pasta alfredo, salad, and for dessert, I made them a berry cobbler and Gus brought ice cream. I've told Wes many times over the years that he should consider going to Chef school. He is very comfortable and creative in the kitchen!!
With table set, candles lit, and a serenade from Jeff Buckley on the ipod, the rest of the family took off for a few hours and let them have some time without the parental units there watching!! The dinner looked great, the girls were beautiful, and the guys were dapper!

These are the other guys giving Wes a dude send off!!

Rhododendron Parade: Downey for Sheriff and Maher Mountain Shires

We have some very dear friends of ours that have a team of beautiful Shires and a red shiny wagon!! When they asked us if we'd like to join them in the Rhododendron Parade, we jumped at the chance. We gathered up a "team" of our own and walked the parade route, passing out candy and "cop cards" and flyers!! We had a great time. We woke up to drizzling skies, but the wind blew off the cloud cover and the sun came out just enough to keep us warm and the horses cool.

Some of our wonderful campaign crew!! Thanks all!

I thought we looked amazing!! These horses are such professionals! The only thing that startled them was the clowns that we walked past!! I know just how they feel.....

Yeeeee Hawww!

We even had beautiful little girls and babies with plump rosey cheeks to kiss!
