Brandon's 14th Birthday and Los Angeles

I think Brandon had one of his best birthdays this year. We had the neighbor down the street who Brandon has befriended drive up by surprise to take Brandon for a ride in his quarter of a million dollar Lamborghini. He couldn't believe it ... he was speechless. Here are some pictures...

Here he is watching the Lamborghini drive up ...

On the left is our neighbor who so kindly took Brandon for a ride to the Lamborghini dealer in his Lamborghini. His best 40 minutes EVER!

He can't get the smile off his face knowing he was going for a ride.

Here they are taking off ...

Happy 14th Birthday Sweetheart

Brandon loves exotic cars

Shelly's brother (Craig) and his son who races

We stopped at the Beverly Hills Lamborghini lot.

This car is "offered" at ... 2.4 million! Are you kidding?

Where the heck do you drive or park a $2.4 million dollar vehicle??????

Brandon's wishful thinking ...

High School friend Steve Irigoyen. We stayed together at Deb's house. Steve, Deb and I use to get out of school early our senior year and watch 3 hours of All My Children, One Life to Live and then General Hospital ... where did it all get us????? Steve even named his son Triston after Scorpio's character from General Hospital. We had some verrrrrrrrrry interesting chats that year.

Grampa Dave meets Tigist for first time

Tigist loved calling him Grampa!

Chatting away

Gina Johnston from High School comes to meet Tigist. I just loved it when my friends met her. it brought our worlds together in such a sweet way.

These girls were from Kenya. They had an outreach at Shere's church in Irvine.

Hi Lisa- Looks like you guys had a great time! We have missed you. Ty missed having Tigi at his birthday party. Only 10 more days until our court date. Please pray it goes as God has planned. Hopefully we can get together soon.

Lisa and family
