You know you live in a small town when...
You invite all of your friends with kids over for a parade. A parade that seems to be a big deal in a small town like ours.
And of course, if you invite your friends over for a parade, you have to watch the whole parade. Even if it is pouring down rain and freezing! Yep, we sure did!
And you know the kids (and dogs) had a good time when they are soaking wet at the end of the parade..and don't seem to mind one bit! :)
(Ok, Krush might have cared that we was really wet!)
After we dried out from the parade, we celebrated my Grandpa's 80th birthday. Turning 80 is a big deal no matter what, but my grandpa happens to be a 2 time survivor or colon cancer. This made this birthday even more special. My grandpa is one of the kindest, hard working men I've ever met. I am grateful for his faith and influence in my life.
My dad and his brother and sister planned a surprise party for grandpa. They reserved a room at the Capri restaurant near my grandparents home. Surprisingly, grandpa was very surprised and grateful for the support and love of his friends and family. It was such a fun day!
Happy 80th birthday Grandpa. We love you! :)
