Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itAfter all the party time yesterday and visiting. We got home last night just before 10 pm and soon called it a night. So this posting is about all the family time we had yesterday.
Arrived at Daughter #1's house by 2 pm and did a few things to get ready for the afternoon party to celebrate (once again my 70th birthday with MY family). WHY? because I can and what better excuse to get together with the kids and grands?
They had the place decorated just for me that I did not expect. But what wow. Heck I cannot believe that I am really 70 years old. Don;'t feel like it and that's a good thing. So glad that I can live to enjoy it! And have my loving family all here.
