Spur of the moment trip

Last month I got a call from my cousin Nichole. She was in N.C.(she lives in Orange County)for the weekend. So we cancelled our beach day and drove the 3 hours to a pretty place called Seven Lakes. It is a community with guess, seven lakes. It was great to see her and her fiance, Ryan. We (Aaron and I) got to meet her future family, which will sorta be my family too. They were very nice and really welcoming to us. They actually were conteplating moving here one day, until they found out there is no Del Taco. Exactly, think how I feel.

Monica's 2nd Annual Groovy 70's Birthday Party

Well since we've been here for 2 years, it seems appropriate that this would be our
2ND annual party. We all (most of us) dress up in 70's attire. My neighbors, The Garretts, have a mirror ball that they loan us that makes it totally disco. I make Cd's with all 70's tunes. We had our atari set up for classic gamers, as well as Aaron's Rock-em. Sock-em Robots. He got his butt beat by Faith (our next door neighbor). We had a roaring fire in the backyard. At one time we had about 20 people listening to our musically inclined friends who played their guitars and sang. I was a little miffed that they didn't know any 70's music, hopefully next year they can add some to their repertoire.
