Well today is the big day. My dad is 96 years old today. What an amazing life he has had. People from his generation have seen so many changes throughout the years. I love listening to his stories about listening to the radio, getting coal for heat and even fetching beers for my grandparents at the local tavern.
With my mom back when they were first engaged.
My mom, dad, brother, sister and I'm the peanut!
(That's always been my dads nickname for me)

With Adam and Amber back at his cottage in Illinois.
We celebrated my great niece Amber's birthday along with my dads birthday on Saturday. It was a nice party with my Florida family. We were missing my one niece Amanda who graduated college and is now employed with John Deere in Georgia. We will be taking dad out tonight for a nice dinner.
I bought him a tray for his walker that comes on and off easily for when he leaves the house. He is always doing a one handed walker carrying something in his other hand to the table. This is so much safer for him.
This is one of my favorites. You would have seen it yesterday in my post. His birthday was and still is the day after our wedding.......
