S: Happy 60th Diane
FC: Happy Birthday! | I hope all your birthday dreams and wishes come true!
1: Happy Birthday Diane!! We Love and Celebrate YOU!! | Our Friendship began on Roundhill Court........who knew that stick ball games, backyard Wiedemann Beer,s open door policies to our homes and having babies together, always being there for one another would have lasted a lifetime back then......
2: Thrifty Fun Babes that we are, we got an entertainment coupon and spent the night at the Drawbridge Inn
3: We had a great dinner and played games all night in the room. My Goodness if we only knew the hotels and trips that were ahead for all of our excellent adventures. No pictures exist and that MAN was not in our room!!!
4: The Fun Babes leave their Zip Code and travel to the Bahama's for Toni and Debbie's 50th Birthday!!
5: Oh what fun times and youngsters we were,!! Look at those styling clothes and hairdo's ladies!!! Our time was spent at the pool, drinking at the swim up bar, casinos, straw markets (NOT Toni's favorite), the beach, and GREAT memories!!! ' | We all remember Debbie playing the same slot machine, the lucky 7'. NO ONE was allowed to touch it...and she went home $375 ahead. Remember Birthday girl Toni wondering how anyone could afford to stay at the Atlantis Jovita reminded me of the ladies waiting in the food lines, topless!!! Kathy remembers sneaking into the back door of the Atlantis!! I think we saved the $25 admission charge Our best memory--Diane reading under the shade tress
6: Happy 50th Diane!! Knowing how much you love the beach and the sun.........you picked ROME as your destination. The Fun Babes, always up for an adventure got their passports and headed to Rome is 2002.
7: Oh the sites we saw...from refreshments at the Piazza Navona, dropping a coin in the Fountain of Trevi, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps and the Forum among other sites.....but the BEST.. | ....the Vatican. The Sistine Chapel, walking up the steps to the crown of the dome, buying rosaries from the sweet Nuns with the cross of John Paul II that Jovita told us about to rubbing the foot of St. Peter. Blessed were all the Fun Babes in the most Blessed of places!!
8: Oh the modes of transportation we used. Finding out way around was quite the adventure. Our favorite transportation moment had to be Toni hopping on that moped!! | Who can forget Fabio and our trip to Assisi. The promise that we could buy religious items at the next stop only be taken to a Pottery Outlet!! but Jan was just FINE with that!! How about Julianna who did such a fabulous tour of Italy at night. Of Course, Jovita, Jan and Kathy run into her at dinner on their last night
9: Remember how Debbie loved the Pieta. She had to have a little one to bring home to remember it by. Then there was Toni using the hairdryer and our electricity went out, so we called from the rooftop for help. | How funny was it that Jovita was climbing the stairs behind those 2 nuns. Of course the sweetest was how much Diane missed Mark and felt guilty because he would love it so much!!
10: Kathy's 50th Kathy picked the Roundhill Resort in Jamacia. We were spoiled with the staff's attention to detail. Red Stripe Beer, bacon by the pounds, Banana pancakes all served by our favorite Bad Bad Leroy Brown!!
11: Birthday Girl! Kathy | Who can forget the outdoor shower, the golf cart shuttles, the beer joints where you can actually get a joint and the afternoon teas | The View was simply spectacular!! | We certainly missed our Fun Babe Diane!! We vowed to NEVER let that happen again!!
12: Time to Celebrate! | Hilton Head 2005 What a fun filled trip. Some of the Fun Babes best memories.... Debbie freezing her ass off sleeping on the first floor with hot blooded Kathy. Frankie Bones was the spot we found our fabulous Fun Babe win glasses!! Kathy remembers the windy walks on the beach. We all loved an appreciated the beautiful house and Kathy & Jack's generosity.
13: We are the Island Girls.... BEST in the WORLD!! (who didn't know THAT???)
14: Columbus 2006 | With no milestone Birthday on the Horizon, we decided Easton was the place to spend time together. The Fun Babes took no pictures that we know of, therefore we have to improvise | Fun Babe Memories.. Happy Hour Every Night....Kathy Going to a place that sold glass for stained glass.....Jan Sitting on the back porch of the hotel late at night and talking....Toni

20: Best Alaska Memories: Watching Diane Dsco Dance on the Dance Floor with rough seas......Jan Walking 4 miles to find a stinking fire house in Juneau to buy a t-shirt....Debbie The beauty of it all.......Kathy Taking cooking classes with Diane......Jan Flying in the helicopter (after calling out our weight) to the glaciers, so beautiful.....Debbie The Fun Babes Forever | Friendship isn't a big thing...it's a million little things There are big ships and tall ships but the best ships are friendships Every Fun Babe trip represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until we spend time with one another. Fun Babes are relatives we make for ourselves. A Fun Babe is a connection to life...a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world The Best Way to Cheer Yourself up is to Cheer another Fun Babe up!
