Happy Birthday Tanner!

Today was Tanner's 10th birthday. He's the oldest of my mother's grandchildren. The first born of my sister. This year his parents decided that he should pick a restaurant to go to for a special birthday dinner. He chose Mexican. What he didn't know was that a cake was snuck in before his arrival and arrangements made with the waiter for a big birthday surprise.
This is Teagan hamming it up with Daddy. He's the baby of the T's. He'll be 2 next month.
Tatum with her Momma in one of her sweet little girl moments. Which in a family with 3 brothers is few and far between some days.
The birthday boy and his Grandma. Aunt Krista and Grandma enjoyed a pitcher of margaritas during dinner which made the party so much more fun!
Big Travis and Little Travis. The big one is our younger brother. The little one was named for him.
The cake was a great surprise. The waiters sang "Happy Birthday" to Tanner as they brought it out. And, of course, they made him wear the sombrero. Very cool! Later Tanner opened his presents while Travis (the little one) placed his order for what he expects for his birthday which is in 10 days. While we were leaving the restaurant, the kids gave their kisses and hugs as usual. But Tanner decided that he's too old for that.....now that he's 10 and all! I hugged the little booger anyway.

Happy Birthday Tanner! I hope you had a great time and a very memorable decade old birthday party.

Sounds like a fun party! Funny how the boys at that age are - I remember my youngest brother at that age actually I kissed him on the cheek and he wiped it off!

What a fun time. You and grandma had the right idea with the ritas!

Man, oh man, Big Travis still looks like a Little Travis to me. That's enough to make me feel like a worn out hag ;0)

Nah, I'm a very lively hag, thank you very much! LOL

My nephewtried to pull that "I'm too old to hug card" and I gave him the biggest, gushiest public hug I could muster. He doesn't try to get out of them any more. :)
