American Graffiti

(A little handiwork & graffiti)
Wowee Readers!
Labor day weekend was a whirlwind of work and fun. Friends dropped in from all over, Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma everyone was just flocking to the Casablanca! Just as things were getting into motion on the dining room, my contractor gets called away to Louisianan for Hurricane Ivan. So my Dad has stepped in and hopefully he and I will get the floor built while Larry is away.
(Patricia poses with the newly posted posts!)
Bright and early Saturday morning Dad and I started setting posts, I mixed 23 bags on concrete in a wheel barrow two bags at a time. Then finally when the last hole was filled we had a penny ceremony!
(The 1943 steel pennies & The 2012 pennies.)
(Thanks again MomWald!)
Not long after the posts were set, Patricia and I were joined by friends Joe, Wes and Alex for a weekend stay!

The hard work being done, we all just relaxed and had a good time, played a few games...

After dinner friend Alex, took on a baking project from pintrest- making "cake in a jar" so we broke out the primary mixing bowls and the 1946 mixer and got to work!
(Different colors of cake batter in contrasting bowls!)
("Do I look cute? Yes, yes I do...")
The end result was not so "picture" or  pintrest perfect (through no fault of the baker) but it was tasty! After a few more rounds of cards and chatting the night away we finally went to bed!
("But I'm not Sleeeeeepy!")
The Sunday morning was met with coffee and omelets-
 (Was there ever any doubt that it wouldn't be in Pyrex?)
Around noon Wes and Alex had to say good bye to head back home, and off to college once more. However there's never a dull moment around the C.H.&R. (Casablanca Hotel & Resort)... checking in!
(Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Na- NA- BOAT RIDE! -Friend Brandon in his Batman shirt.)
Sunday afternoon Dad took all of us for a boat ride and entertainments on the beach!

We packed a cooler, the cabana umbrella and made camp on the beach!
After having fun in the sun, we headed back to the house to meet friend Jenny and get dinner started. Another sumptuous meal and more board games and cards.
(Brandon, Jenny, Patricia, & Jennifer!)
 All in all it was a fun and Fantasist weekend! Thanks to everyone who came out, Jeff and Donneta from Kansas, and a huge thanks to my Dad and Larry!

Another fun-filled weekend at the Casablanca! You're moving right along with the new room. We've had people out to give us quotes on the new mother-in-law's apartment behind my house. You and I may be building at the same time. :)

Wow, you guys deserve a party!

What would we do without dads? Well, besides not exist and all that.
