"The 2008 Father's Day Hair "Razing"

For Father's Day, we were all invited to Monica's and Derik's house for dinner. All of the family came for steaks. Phil was there and in good spirits. His son, Matt, from Denver is still here and was able to be there.

All of the kids went swimming or played on the great swing set that they have. The adults either sat in the house or outside visiting. Dinner was great.

Derik had recently gotten a buzz cut and Austin had cut his hair. It wasn't in a buzz, but it was quit
e short compared to the way he usually wears it.

For some reason, Matt R decided to have Derik and Jay buzz cut
his hair. All of a sudden, it became a "dare." So all of the guys trooped out to the carport with scissors and an electric razor. Ryan and Cameron decided to be a part of this, too. Cameron's hair isn't very long, but Ryan's had been. So Matt H gave him the first part of the haircut, which was quite funny. I think Ryan may have been a bit nervous. Derik and Jay finished it off and he looks great. He actually looks quite a bit older. He was anxious for his dad to get back from flying so he could see it.

Not all of the guys "participated" in this event as they didn't want to lose their curl
s (at least I am assuming that!) It was a fun way to end the evening.

I was trying to figure out how to write about this, but
couldn't quite come up with anything very catchy or funny. This evening, Kerri said that she had gotten an email from our cousin, Shawna, in Ohio and she wanted me to put this on the blog. So I am putting it on along with some great pictures of the "2008 Father's Day Hair Razing!" Hope you like the music that goes along with this post!

LOL! Oh, this is great!! The guys actually look like they are having alot of fun with this! I'm glad you guys had such a great time yesterday. Okay, can I say how much I LOVE this song!!??!! When I was a kid in Ohio, I had this album and memorized this song up one side and down the other. I spent hours singing in my bedroom this song and my girlfriends and I thought some of the Cowsills were cute!! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!! Maggie is sitting on the floor here thinking her mother should be admitted!! : )

I was just thinking - was this the first time that the "boys" had their hair cut by a 'barber after 4 beers'? HMM.... either way, they all looked really nice!
