Sick Pets and a Birthday Party

Today we spent $260, and all we got to show for it was this picture of Rambler's stomach, which we were told is empty other than some gas. 

That's right, no birthday celebration at our house is complete without a visit to the vet!  Rambler seemed to be suffering some intestinal problems as a result of eating some non-food item (socks, toys, who knows).  After an expensive trip to the vet, we learned that there was nothing identifiable wrong with him.  We're very glad that he's okay and all but really wish we hadn't wasted all that money and time worrying.

A few hours later we had the whole family gathered in our living room celebrating Chris' birthday when the unmistakable sound of a cat throwing up halted all conversation.  Ugh!  Several people had the unlucky vantage point to observe CJ vomiting up his entire lunch.  Poor Cricket had the worst seat in the house though...on the ground directly under CJ.  It's debatable whether he was actually aiming for her head or not, but if he was, he has great aim.  I guess this explains why the cats are always vying for the top perch on the condo.

Despite the animals' antics, we did have a great day celebrating Chris' birthday.  Here are a couple of photos from the happier moments of the party.

Col & to grad school prom after the party!

Hmm, looks like I didn't take pictures of the whole group at the party.  I think I was too tired from dealing with the animals, or maybe I was too busy eating ice cream cake!

Chris is off to Lowe's now to spend his gift cards to purchase a new workbench.
