The welcome wagon!

        

      Today is my Aunt Muriel's birthday. Mom and Dad have gone to Alabama for a surprise celebration. My dad is one of 11 children, anytime they all get together it's automatically a party.

     They are getting a little older and they have started a tradition of making sure that each others 75th birthday becomes a blow out to remember. Hey, anybody that makes it to 75 deserves a big blow out, right?

       The Festivities begin today. Muriel does not know that any of them are there. Her son James has built a covered wagon float to pull behind his truck in their 4th of July Parade.

        Muriel will be a spectator watching the parade. But when the wagon comes by "SURPRISE" she will find the it filled with her family and friends. They will pick her up and whisk her away and that's when the weekend party begins.       

Awww how cute are they?  Pictures in a couple of weeks.
