Today (now, yesterday) was my brother's sixteenth birthday! :O He's taller than me now. *sob* .....j/k about the 'sob' ;) ..... it feels normal for a brother to be taller than his sister - even if he is three years my junior..... Anyhow, rather than tell in great and boring detail how the day went, I will give you a photographic tour. :D So here we are, the morning of August 17, 2005...
Joey, playing his guitar, on the deck stairs:
These are a couple of portrait shots I was experimenting with... I really like how they turned out:
After lunch, we went to Topeka:
Where Joey picked out a new guitar for his birthday:
I don't know the specs on it but I do know that it sounds really nice and is a NICE guitar. He also got an amp and a hard-shell case for the guitar...
After running a couple of other errands, we went to Pepe'n'Chela's for an early dinner - about 4:30:
Joey, with a slow shutter:
Rose and Dad:
Mom, awaiting dinner:
Some silliness before food arrived:
And then the meal progressed thus:
These two ravenous children were 'skinny' before eating...
And were full...
:D *lol* :D
There was a beautiful statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe overlooking the restaurant:
You'd think they were twins: ;)
And, yes, this is myself: :D
Good meal... good moods:
Back at home, Joey enjoyed his birthday presents:
HAPPY 16TH BIRTHDAY, JOEY!!!!!
