Weekend Recap

November 8, 2010 at 7:58 AM 14 comments

I don’t often share photos of my weekends but this past Saturday night was so hilarious that I need to share. You can get a glimpse into how silly my family is…some call it silly, others perhaps crazy. However you see it, we sure have fun!

For my mom’s 65 birthday, she requested that we dress like old people. Here’s how we embraced the dress up challenge:

Bridget had the best costume – Floridian traveler sort of a look (she even had a handbag filled with medication and dentures) Graham and I went for the pulled up sweats tucked in shirt look and felt that a little blue hair really finished off my outfit!

Miles looked confused with his mismatched clothing.

Graham and I in 50 years.

The birthday girl decided to dress up as the “worst type of old person attire,” “the old person who dresses too young” – hot outfit mom!

Brittany went for the refined old lady with a beautiful shawl and plenty of pearls.

Joe went for the “senile” old man look with orthopedic shoes on the wrong feet.

Donald went as the old man still reliving his high school football days, complete with a massive gut and superman underwear.

Lucy went as the pervy old man trolling the retirement home for chicks.

We did also have some very serious work to do this weekend; we were artists. We strove to emulate the work of Andy Goldworthsy. I’d give all of us A for effort.

Not to worry, even with all of our hard artist work, we still found time for play –

It was a fantastic weekend and we’d like to thank dad for looking out for us on the weather front. It was supposed to rain on Saturday but instead it was nothing but sunshine for our art creations. Sunday it rained, however that provided time for a fire and games.

What a fantastic weekend!

    Why is Graham going to become retarded when he’s old?
