Labor Day Weekend

This labor day weekend has been a very eventful one, that's for sure. Yesterday was my little brother's 16th birthday. It's hard to believe that he is already 16, makes me feel old! For his birthday his grandpa had given him a truck, only it was given to him a couple of months ago so he could be day-working. So, for my surprise for him, I took it to get "cleaned,"

My friend Stormie helped me with the "cleaning!"
Can you see the Barbie hanging from the rear view mirror?
I think we did a very good job!

I can't believe that my brother was so gullible to let me have his truck keys. Our conversation went like this..
Me: "Lj, I need your truck keys please,"
Lj: "Umm, why?"
Me: "I'm taking it to get detailed for your birthday,"
Lj: "OK!!"
Silly brother of mine. He even got it at church on Sunday. Pastor Wendell asked him to come help him with something up front and Lj went up there, being the good cowhand he is. Wendell then had him stand on a bale, which really should have tipped Lj that something was up, but no! We then proceeded to sing Happy Birthday and that's when he finally got it! His defense: "I forgot that it was my birthday...!" Yay for little brothers right!

Well that was only half of the very eventful weekend. The other half you will have to guess... but here is a picture to help ya figure it out (for those who haven't already!)

Ya'll have a great week!
