Grampy's Birthday

On Saturday, we celebrated Grampy's birthday with dinner with the family. I love these gatherings because I get to spend time with my parents and siblings and the new generation can play together, too!

Lily is getting strong and fast enough to keep up with the boys and Mairead loves when "Baby Lily, baby sister" comes to visit.

But keeping up with the big kids makes for one tired little girl!

Jack and Ben spent some quality 'guy time' playing basketball with their uncle, Steve.

Can you believe these two are going to be TWO in less than two weeks?

Mairead LOVES birthday parties. When I told her it was Grampy's birthday she said, "A birthday party? Yay, yay! A cake and presents and candles and fire."

How's this for a look of total joy upon seeing the cake and candles?

We are all very lucky to have such a great Grampy in our lives. He does a lot for all of us- he even gets down on the floor to play after a long day at work. Even if he is tired or his back hurts, he is always ready to have fun with the kids. He is always there when we need him, and he always has been. Thanks for being such a great dad and a great Grampy!
