It was my dad's birthday yesterday. During an interlude when we thought we were done with the flu we got together at my parents' house to celebrate. You know you are a fun grandpa when you allow this much helping with the opening of your gifts.
This is very typical. All the grown-ups are inside visiting while the kids are outside playing. Except where is the Birthday Boy? Out playing with the grandkids. Can you tell why they think he is the best?
It has been a very unique month. My Gram that passed away is my Dad's mother. It was a very special experience to watch my dad say goodbye to his mother. The tenderness and care he showed her those last days were just a sample of how he has always been with his mom. I was so proud to be his daughter, well I always am.
I hope you had a great day Dad because we all love you so much! Now I just hope we didn't leave you with the gift of the flu!
