Colin's Birthday

I know, I know.  Colin's birthday was over 2 months ago, but in Colin's world, his birthday lasts 2 months.  He's spoiled rotten!  What can I say!?!
So, of course he had a Ducati themed birthday party.

My cousin, Jennifer owns a bakery and provided the cake for us.  It was so perfect for our party!

The kids helped Daddy blow out his candles.


We had a great evening with great food, great friends, and great times.  
We celebrated at our house, but cake time was reserved for the garage.  For a Ducati party, there was no better place.
It was such a happy day.

Mary, Brandon and Daniel even dressed for the Canadian's birthday!

Daniel wore his "Captain Canada" shirt...haha


This picture was one of my favorites. Mary busted out laughing when she figured out that Emma was smearing ranch dressing all over herself while on her lap. Peeler knew it the whole time, of course he didn't say anything though!

Speaking of Emma, she had a great time partying with her daddy.

The big birthday present was shipped in all the way from Italy!  Colin got his new exhaust race kit (race ECU, high flow air filter, blah blah blah) for his bike.  He was pretty darn excited.  There's not much that you can do to an exhaust kit to make it an attractive birthday gift, but something tells me that Colin didn't mind that at all.  He also got race tires and other carbon fiber "bits and pieces" as I like to call them.  Each one, he says, adds 10 horse power...haha


Colin went to the dealership and had his new exhaust put on by Dennis, a Ducati Master Mechanic.... one of the very few in America.  Yes, folks, that's right, Colin's birthday was top notch all the way (or his version of top notch... not necessarily something that I would have wanted for myself, but I am not a motorcycle nut).

So now, at this point he was ready for his track day.
