Earlier this month, I went to New York to celebrate my grandfather’s 96th birthday!!!  It was so nice to see my family.  There is never enough time when I’m there, so I missed seeing my cousin B*.  Hopefully I’ll be back again soon.  

We had a celebration picnic for G’pa at 4pm (because that’s when he eats dinner)!  He’s doing pretty good for his age – just moving a little slower.  He actually forgot it was his birthday that day!  This is my awesome grampa!!  {These pics were taken with my camera camera.}
His yummy cake from the bakery in Chinatown!  They are always super moist and just the perfect amount of sweetness!
He is such a joy to be around.  He is always so happy and loving!  Happy Birthday Grampa!!

Happy Monday Y’all!

  10. Wow! 96th birthday! It’s wonderful you flew all the way to NY to celebrate his birthday. You look so pretty. I remember you mentioned your age once and honestly, have I not known that, I would’ve thought you’re about 27!
