Chris' BIG Day

Here is the train DH and I went on last night to celebrate his 50th birthday. They also have a Saturday "Party Train" for the same length of time but for only $25. Hmmm...this could be a lot of fun with a group!! You can even make reservations to sleep on the train (if you partied too much, I guess)
This is my sweetie getting ready to board the train. He looks pretty happy for an old dude, huh?
I had the engineer take out picture together before we left the station. There were only 10 total people on the train last night.
I forgot to take a picture of the dinner until I was part way through but here ya go. Chicken cordon blue with rice and veggies. It was very good!

They had an entertainer that did songs from Motown and he also did impressions. It was pretty fun. He was doing "My Girl" by the Temptations and asked the guys that were there to do the vocal back ups (they all really ended up singing)

My DH can't carry a tune in a bucket, but you should watch him trying! Awe, he was such a good sport! Happy Birthday, honey!!

Tonight we are going to see the Detroit Tigers game with our friends, Mary and Craig. We are going to dinner somewhere first, although Mary said no where fancy as she will be wearing her Tiger's jersey! It should be a fun evening.

I had quilting with the CL's today and I got a tied fleece University of Texas blanket done for DS. (That counts as stash fabric out, right?) I also machine stitched the binding on the U of M quilt. One step closer, yea! I cut out a pet screen tote bag and learned how to make the cutest little purse. I will post more about that later, once I make one. Maybe I will post a tutorial. That is if I ever stay home long enough to do it. The yard needs work and so does the house, but instead I am posting and partying! I guess you know where my priorities lie, hmmmm???
