100th Birthday Bash

This summer Grandpa Sherrill had a birthday and Caleb had a birthday and (without giving away the exact numbers of who was turning what) their birthdays just happened to equal 100 years!

The kids picked this card out because it played the Star Wars Theme song when you opened it up. 
Uncle Caleb's card played, "Who Let the Dogs Out? Who, Who, Who . . . " Yep. We only got to hear that play a few thousand times before vacation was over!

Our niece Katie also had a birthday the same week that we were together ! 


Because it was such a momentous occasion and because Nate and Tina are such gracious hosts, the family decided to meet in Council Bluffs for a little partying. And, let me tell ya, did we ever party!

Nate and Tina had an "Island" theme for the birthday extravaganza, complete with grass skirts, leis, hula-hoops and sunglasses.

This was part of a relay race where the kids had to dress Cabes and Grandpa up in island gear and then collect the items again. I'm happy to report that nobody lost an eyeball in the process, although it was close . . . 


We all did a little bit of hip swiveling (although Caleb is by far the best hip-swiveler in the family) and a little bit of hula-hooping (Grandma still has the touch!) . . . 



. . . and a little bit of backwards stretching (I was amazed at how Andrea could still do a backbend. Every time that I look at this picture my spine pops and tells my brain that if I ever tried to attempt this I'd end up in a wheelchair.) . . . 



 . . .  and a little bit of devouring birthday cake and ice cream. What a great way to celebrate a birthday, or two, or three!



And now, for your entertainment as well as for my own, I give to you (drum roll please . . . )

THE LIMBO! courtesy of the Sherrill kids


Every Limbo boy and girl, all around the Limbo world, 


Gonna do the Limbo rock, all around the Limbo dock,


Jack be Limbo, Jack be quick, Jack go under Limbo stick,


All around the Limbo dock, Hey let's do the Limbo rock.


First you spread your Limbo feet, then you move to Limbo beat,


Limbo ankle, Limbo knee,


Bend back like a Limbo tree!


Jack be Limbo, Jack be quick, Jack go under Limbo stick,


All around the Limbo dock, hey let's do the Limbo rock.


La, la, la, la, la, la, la 
la, la, la, la, la, la, la 


La, la, la, la, la, la, la
la, la, la, la, la, la, la . . .


All around the Limbo dock, hey let's do the Limbo rock!
