Happy 90th Birthday, Grandaddy!


Last month, my Grandaddy turned 90 years old.  Well, as you can imagine this is quite a big occasion that deserved a big celebration.  So, our whole family and many friends gathered together to celebrate the birthday of this great man, luau style!

**Again, these fabulous pictures are mainly from my sister, Laura.  She is so good!**

Mikayla all ready for the luau.  Isn’t she darling?!?

IMG_1031 copy What are these boys up to??  Nothing but mischief, I’m sure.  IMG_1140 copy  He couldn’t get enough of those suckers.  He kept going back to the bowl and helping himself to some.  I think he got away with at least 4 or 5. :)IMG_1239 copyI was holding Andrew, because Emily was outside, and well, Gavin got a little jealous.

It was a super hot day as you can see by this red faced, wild haired little boy. IMG_1269 copy

I love some Gavin cuddles. IMG_1015 copy  The birthday party fell right during one of the USA World Cup soccer games.  Jeremy had a computer from work for the weekend that had an air card so they were able to stream the game live from the computer.   It frustrated me a little, but at least it kept him from complaining about missing the game.IMG_0113 This is the result of what happens when you play in the super hot sun and miss you afternoon nap.  I just love watching my children sleep no matter where it is.

All in all, we had a great day.  My granddaddy lives two hours away, so I don’t get to seem him nearly as often as I’d like.  I was so happy to be able to be there to celebrate such an important milestone with him.
