momma's b-day

today is my mom's birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMA!) and yesterday we celebrated in the best way we know how. Hawaiian style. Big Kahuna's, tropical sodas and beer, tiki torches, hanging out in their backyard and playing croquet (ok, not hawaiian, but a great lazy summertime activity). it was such a perfect august day, which is very rare here in the midwest.  

(also...i'm still having fun with this new action i got from a fellow flickr-er.)
