Three Weeks Ago

Riley got his 16th birthday present on Friday the 21st.
It is a Remington .308 Rifle.
So early Saturday morning Scott took him Coyote hunting.
They didn't see anything but had a good time.
Afterword they met us at the park for our combined birthday party.

This is a testament to how unpredictable life is.
This was the last time the whole Nelson family was together before Dad's passing.
He passed away just 4 short days later.
It was a great party. Everyone had a great time, especially Dad.
His favorite thing was getting his family together.

Unarra and Prestyn just kicking back and relaxing.

Food was Good
The kids enjoyed there presents.
Mom bought a really good ice cream cake.
We got a pinata for the party (just like we did for one of the Strong potlucks).
Good thing the pinata season is over - Riley broke our stick.
I'm so greatful for this party in the park. It will be a fond memory for all.
We love you and will miss you Dad.

I'm so glad you had this party so every one was together before he passed away. It was kind of the goodbye party and you didn't even know it. What a great blessing for you all! I'm glad you got a picture. We love you so much and hope you are all doing ok.

I'm sure these pictures will be treasured. Aren't you so glad you didn't forget your camera this day. Life is so short and unexpected. It's so good you were all able to be together. We are still thinking about you guys! We love you!

Your Dad look good in the picture you took. Memories are so important, because that is all that is left in the end. What a great party. I looked to see what kind of food you had, but it was hard to tell from Tia's plate she had pickles and chips.LOL
Can't wait to see you all.
Love aunt Ruth
