When celebrating your birthday once just won't cut it, there is the Lori Brown Birthday Extravaganza! Before the bullriding occassion ever came up, we planned to throw Lori a wonderful all-day Lori-themed birthday event. It was to go something like Lunch, Manicure/Pedicure, Dinner, Slumber Party for the girls.
We had lunch at Gringos, which was really yummy. 21 people showed up, which is a pretty good turn out for Saturday morning. Most of the people there were either in the church choir, or were already awesome singers. When it was time to sing Happy Birthday to Lori, we automatically broke into 4-part harmony. It sounded great and the entire restaurant stopped to clap. It sounded really cool.

After lunch, Lori, Maddie, Candy, and I went over to the nail salon for a little pampering. Even little Maddie got her nails painted. It was wonderfully relaxing.
Once we finished with the nails, Lori, Maddie, and I went back to their house to rest and wait for the other girls to show up for the pajama party. Once Amy and Elayne showed up, it was time to put Maddie to bed. We all helped her say her prayers and tucked her into bed.
Once Maddie was asleep, it was time to break out the Rock Band!
A great time was had by all.
