So the place to be on Friday April 23rd was the clubhouse at The Hawktree Golf Club in Bismarck. There 65 of the greatest friends and family had gathered to celebrate the Earthgirl's 50th Birthday.

The preparations had been long in the making, but the secret was kept (and covered) by timely phone calls and polite conversations. Earthgirl had no clue when we walked in to a raucous "Happy Birthday" cheer.

It was a magnificent setting with sunny skies and a great view of the golf course. The boys and friends could run off a little steam outside, the food was great, and the company could not have been better.

The boy's got her a gift of a beautiful Mother's ring which she was not expecting (thanks Sandi!), and despite their shy ways you could tell they were happy for their Mama.

The Bud Light was cold and flowing, the conversations were wide ranging and interesting, and I think everyone had a pretty darn good time.

After the big party had moved on we met old friends Mike & Rita, Hubie, Terry & Julie, and Pat & Sharon at BWW for trivia. Unwisely, I didn't stop drinking and paid for it with a vicious hangover on Saturday. Needless to say, another teachable moment for the parent of teenage boys.

It was a truly great evening, thanks to all of you who were able to attend, and to all who were there in spirit. If anybody reads this and wants to email me your best pictures I will gladly post them. Anybody get a good shot of the Cake?
I can hear you now Terry- "There was Cake?"
