January - Heath's 7th Birthday - January 28, 2010
Heath's Birthday happened several times in several places. It
started at Church on Wednesday before his Birthday. Then at School for lunch
on his Birthday, and at home with the family (including Nanny and Paw Paw
and Mother Goose). Finally, Mommy took Heath, Lainey, and John Micah to the
Tennessee Aquarium with some friends to top off his Birthday celebration.
Mommy also bought a family annual pass, so we'll be back!
Paw Paw's 80th Birthday - February 2, 2010
A bunch of the family got together at Uncle Mark's and Aunt
Brenda's to celebrate Paw Paw's 80th Birthday. We were lucky to have some
old family there, and some new family too. It was Kenzie's first Richardson
family get together, and she survived! She certainly was not lacking for
10th Birthday - February 15, 2010
Lee Thomas' Birthday started with the receipt of a go cart as a gift
(no, he will not ride any more without a helmet). Then he had a sleep
over with a few of his friends at our house. They slept in the camper and
kept daddy up all night. The next day, we played Wii, Nintendo DS's, shot
arrows at targets, and froze trying to fish. Altogether a fun and exciting
weekend! More to come (we have a PB&J Adventure to add to his

Heath's 6th Birthday - January
When Daddy was a kid, he had one "BirthDAY" per year. A
DAY! Now, kids get like a week! I guess they deserve it.
Heath's 6th Birthday included a visit to the Atlanta RV show, dinner with
the Bishops and Browns at Pappasito's
(Daddy's favorite), tennis at GCA, Dinner with the Parkers at
Provino's, Tennis at GCA, and cake
and Wii play at home.

Well, we originally planned to picnic before going to the
main event, but we started at the Varsity instead.
here to see the MAIN EVENT!
Cousin Julian's Birthday Party
September 13, 2008
Because our friend Jaxon and cousin Julian had their Birthday parties at
the same time, we had to split up. Daddy took the twins to Julian's
party, and Mommy took the big boys to Jaxon's. We had hoped to swap at
some point, but that didn't work out. These pictures are from Julian's
Birthday party. It was held at one of Gordon County's playgrounds near
Calhoun, Georgia. The kids played a lot, then had chips, cake, and
drinks. It was mega fun!
Granny's Birthday Party
(Most of the extended Richardson Tribe was
there) - August 03, 2008
We celebrated Granny's Birthday at Nanny's and
Paw Paw's pool. As you can see from the pictures, Granny has lots of
family that loves her very much. We enjoyed pizza and cake along with
lots of swimming and sunshine.
Cal's 9th Birthday Party
(just us and the Parkertop Clan) - July 10
(his Birthday is on the 15th)
We celebrated Calbert's Birthday at
Fort Mountain this year. We celebrated our friend Cal's birthday
on this trip, and Daddy kind of took a vacation from the camera.
Ranger Ruby was there, so we were able to pan for gold for a while.
The Tribe gave Cal a guitar for his birthday, and he seemed to be very happy
to receive it.
Twin's 4th Birthday - June 8,
The twin's Birthday started in the Breakfast Room with a few presents as
usual. They got sleeping bags and various other goodies. We had
big plans for friends and swimming later in the day, but first we went to
church to see Alison, Jake and Yvette get baptized. After lunch, we
headed for Nanny's and Paw Paw's pool for swimming, cake, ice cream, and tie
dyeing t-shirts. We had lots of company (I won't even start to list
everyone), and we want to thank everyone that showed-up. We missed
Super Dave's clan because they were on vacation in Myrtle Beach (but we have
t-shirts for Carson and Diana to tie dye). Everyone seemed to have a
great time and got plenty of exercise. (The Jeep is one of Olivia's
daddy's latest projects). That evening, Jillian came by to wish
the twins "Happy Birthday. She brought Lainey some makeup, and John
Micah some astronaut toys (which he and Heath played with till bedtime).
Birthday - February 15, 2008
Our PB&J Adventure to Disney World
and Lee Thomas' 8th birthday coincided this year, so we celebrated LT's
birthday at the Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom. Super Dave, Carly
Sue, Diana, and Carson joined in the festivities. Super Dave's cuz
Frank and his family also joined us for dinner and sweet treats.
Rainforest Cafe is all about atmosphere, and not necessarily about good
food, but everyone had fun.
Birthday - January 28,
We hadn't planned a big party for Heath, just a few frames at the bowling
alley. Heath's teacher and her kids came, Cal and Jon came by, and our
friends the Hollands joined Heath in celebrating his 5th birthday.
Heath got lots of cool goodies including a new skateboard and tickets to the
new Hannah Montana 3D concert movie! Woo-Hoo!
Diana's Birthday Party (6),
October 20, 2007
For our friend Diana's Birthday party, the girls had a
special "girls only" party. None of us boys could go, but it looks
like they all had a ball dressing-up like little movie stars. When
Lainey got home, she cried when we had to wash the color and sprinkles out
of her hair.
Mother Goose's and our friends Pamba's and Emily's Birthday Celebration,
October 7, 2007
On this very nice day, we celebrated the Birthday's of
three very special people. We celebrated Mother Goose's 77th Birthday,
Emily's 8th Birthday, and Pamba's (it's a mystery) Birthday. Everyone
played outside riding bikes and tossing the ball. Then we went in for
steaks, crab legs, pork chops, weenie kabobs, onions, taters, and Goose's
famous cake. Then the kids played pool and
danced (video) until the wee hours of
the night (8 pm or so). Fun was had by all, and I'm glad someone
finally used our pool table for something other than a storage device.
Our Friend Carson's 3rd Birthday, September 29, 2007
We celebrated our friend Carson's birthday at
Kid's Play (I think that's the name of the place) in Calhoun. As the
pictures will tell, the kids had a BIG time. Lots of sugar was
burned climbing and sliding and running and jumping. Dianna and Olivia
were there as was Jules and a number of other kids. Lee Thomas was the
old one in the crowd. We got to see Ms. Patty for the first time in a
long time. She's still one of the prettiest ladies I've ever known.
Happy Birthday Carson!
Daddy saw Bigfoot again, but no one
Calbert's (Cal) 8th Birthday, July 15,
Cal, Lee Thomas' best friend since birth, celebrated his 8th Birthday
with us on a camping trip to
Antioch Lake (Rocky Mountain recreation Area, Rome, GA). Cal is
like a brother to Lee Thomas and the other kids. We had quite a crowd
at the campsite Saturday night (July 14) with the Bishops, Browns, Parkers,
and the Driscolls. The kids swam at the beach, played at the
playground, and watched a Star Wars movie outside at the camper. We
ate tons of hotdogs, s'mores, and birthday cake. Cal spent the night
with us in the camper. The kids watched
Land of the Lost episodes
Lainey Grace's and John Micah's
June 8, 2007
Well, there wasn't supposed to be a party, but
one kind of happened. We had cake at home the evening of Friday the
8th and gave the twins their new bikes. About midday on Saturday, we
went up to Nanny's and Paw Paw's pool. Turns out, several friends and
family members showed-up to swim and eat Krystal burgers.
Lee Thomas' 7th
Birthday, February 15, 2007
On the 15th we celebrated Lee Thomas' Birthday at home with Pam, John,
Cal, Nanny, and Paw Paw.
He received two bibles, 14 4D puzzles (which they
worked on till 11 pm), a new bike, a helmet, and knee
and elbow pads. On the
16th, we headed for Dave and Busters for lunch, games, and desert. I
realized you could blow so much money on games!
