Gentry David's 1st Birthday

Last night Jeff and Ashlie had a barbecue and party to celebrate Gentry David's first birthday. It was a great time of family and friends and I have to say that Gentry did a great job polishing off his birthday cake--a rite of passage for all one-year-olds.

It's great to have Jeff and Ashlie back near to us (Longmont) as they finish up school at CU and launch a new student ministry at Silver Creek High School. Jeff is an assistant football coach on the Freshman team and Ashlie is working with the cheerleaders (she was a cheerleader at NMSU and has coached HS teams so she's well qualified. Their on campus positions give them a great leg up with students, coaches and parents.

This was also the first time I put Gentry up in "The Indian Tree" although he has been on the Indian Knee before. After the cake cutting Jeff put up a pinata of sponge pants Bob. Little did we know we had a kinder, gentler type of pinata designed for kids to pull small ribbons, one of which is attached to the candy door. It took nephew Matt to really get the candy out of old Bob.
