Phew! What a day!
First, we got up and met someone for lunch. This is the gentleman that purchased the Toy Story DVD for Kevin. Jesse rode his bike down (thank goodness it was a beautiful day here today) and he spent quite a bit of time talking to Kevin and showing him his Harley.
This Harley is very special. Jesse is retired Army and as a tribute to his comrades, his bike has all of the names of the soldiers from Pennsylvania that have been killed in either Iraq or Afghanistan. It was definitely a sight to see and it was very emotional as well.
Here are some photos:
Very impressive, huh?
And of course you all know that we had a little party tonight for Kevin and it turned out FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!
I want to thank LuAnn and Rodney from the Allstars for laying out one heckuva spread for us. The food was fantastic and so generous of you! We love you guys!!
And truly - Kevin had a blast!! Matter of fact, I couldn't get him to leave and at 1am I pretty much forced him to go. I was beat and had a drive to get back to the hotel.
But as I mentioned - he really did have so much fun! A bunch of his friends showed up and it was so cool to see Kevin laughing and carrying on with them. I pretty much left him alone and visited with all my friends and it was just such a bittersweet feeling. On one side I was so darn happy to see everyone and on the flip side it really stinks that we have to leave again in a couple of days.
But, it is what it is and we all enjoyed tonight. That's what counts and I am so thankful to those that came!
And I have TONS of photos, but I am going to show them tomorrow night. I am just too tired to resize and edit them. And now this girl is going to bed!
RIP to those that perished on this day 9 years ago. We will never forget!
