Clint’s 40th Birthday Weekend

Recap Time.

 

Clint’s 40th

Clint’s birthday was January 29th.  Sadly, I was out of town on a business trip so was unable to celebrate with him that day, but if you recall, I left him a few decorations to get him by until I returned.  🙂

He was able to meet his mom, stepdad and son, Kyle, for dinner that evening which made me feel so much better about being gone.   I was excited to get back Friday evening so he could open his gift from me!   This gift took me days of research you guys.  Seriously.

The anticipation… what is it?  Even Champ couldn’t wait to find out!

THAT, my friends, is a moonshine still.   I picked one out that he gets to actually solder together himself.  He is totally stoked.   Watch out, folks.    Pirtle Moonshine, coming right up!

Friday evening we chose to stay low-key because Saturday was a whole other story!   We traveled to Des Moines, IA where we met up with a group of friends that came in from all areas.  Clarinda, Cedar Rapids, lake of the Ozarks, Omaha … even VEGAS!   The look on Clint’s face when Cole walked into the bar we were at that afternoon was priceless.   Sadly for me my iPhone was being stupid and I didn’t catch it on camera.

We had a ton of fun walking around downtown Des Moines, even during the snow storm.   All that snow turned the men into 10 year old adolescents again.   I can’t even tell you how many snowball fights were had while we walked from bar to bar.   Priceless.

SUCH a fun night! 

I think we all had a blast….

                                              Until the drive home the next day.

Interstate was a bit sketchy…

 

Slow and steady won the race!

Cheers!
