Joey's 16th Birthday!!

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...

They ate...

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: ;)

Cool Dudes:

And, yes, this is myself: :D

Good meal... good moods:

Back at home, Joey enjoyed his birthday presents:

WOW!!! Great pix! Rose and Joey are just too much- they're hams.:P I really like the one of Joey's reflection on his guitar(it took me a few minutes to figure out that it was his reflection and not HIM inside his guitar-hehe). Keep up the good work! Britt
