Tanya's Birthday

April 29th this year is Tanya's 30th birthday for the 5th time. For those who can add she turned 34!

Donna and I treated Tanya to dinner at Candeleros in Manchester.
A night of adult converstion and company we thought she deserved
And as below you can see she brought Greg too.

Greg does not like Mexican food but he sure did put it away between stories and funny remarks. We all shared stories about growing up and parents. Ending the evening just telling gossip.

Below is the group as we departed the restaraunt. Picture was taken by the bartender who Tanya kept busy making frozen margeritas.

VPP Convention FUN

Fun is always had at the VPP convention! This year was really special having my 'little buddy' J Michael McBride and his wife Sheri here from Nebraska. He was one of the last people that I really wanted Brad to meet.

We got to have a few hours before convention to tool around and show Sheri some of Vermont. The highlight was our visit to the Long Trail Brewery. We didn't get to go last fall for Brad's birthday, so it was a treat for all of us!

I just LOVE these two images that J Michael did of Lola and Bella. You can really see Miss Lola's personality!
We also had the treat of having Memere with us for the WHOLE convention. Many of us enjoyed muffins and coffee in her room. If we weren't counting the days till Groton, before we certainly are now! 67 DAYS till GROTON!!

Janet Osha Miller was added to the prestigious list of recipients of the Presidents Medal! YOU GO GIRL! You earned this one!!!
