Happy Birthday, Ally

We spent most of Saturday over at the O'Briens to celebrate Ally's birthday.

It was the first time we were in the neighborhood since one of Bills neighbors house caught fire. Apparently, he was making homemade fireworks (the source of the burn material) and decided to also do some grinding (ignition) and then tried to put it out himself with a garden hose after calling the fire department.

The end result is that the house has 100,000 dollars of damage, he is looking at some serious charges from the feds and his brand new government (complete with security clearance) job is in jeopardy.

Anyway, I digress. Ally's birthday was celebrated this weekend and so we got her a little digital camera we found at Target (very reasonably priced) and a video game. She really liked the camera, I knew she would cause she always liked to use my camera and liked to take pictures with it.

We had food from Baja Fresh, so nobody had to cook, too. I like Baja Fresh, but there isn't one that is very convenient to us, so we don't go much.

We all had a great time, as usual. Next week we celebrate Colleens birthday and she liked the digital camera, too. So maybe she will get one.
