Happy Birthday, Sheryl!

Well, it's wife is cough-cough-40-cough. Tuesday night I threw a surprise birthday party for Sheryl at one of Abilene's cooler venues, the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature. The NCCIL is a national museum where artists who illustrate popular children's books display their illustrations and art work. My mom was key in bringing it to Abilene and the NCCIL produces tours of these art shows that travel all over the US. It's a cool place! But, not as cool as my beautiful wife who has only gotten more lovely with age. She was truly surprised too! THAT was an accomplishment!

Here are some pictures of our fun evening together with great friends...
