Happy Birthday Dad!

Just one week after we celebrated Mom's 80th Birthday, we all got together and celebrated Dad's 79th Birthday

Except this time he insisted that he take us all out to dinner! So he got us this little room at the Redfront Restaurant, and we had a great time.
The group was much smaller and more intimate, just his closest friends, kids, grandkids and great grandkids...
Here the boys are helping "Bepa" open his cards and check his scratch off tickets

He couldn't open those cards fast enough!

My Sister Nancy and her husband Ned stayed here for both of our Parent's parties and Aunt Nancy always remembers to bring Disney stickers with her for the little ones...

except....

after she got thru with Lola

i'm not sure there were many stickers left for anyone else!

(Awww Mellon...another picture?!)

Anyway, the food was great, the company was fantastic

And a good time was had by all...especially by my Parents.
We Love You Mom and Dad !

Thank you Ladies! It was a very nice day, and it made my Father very happy. But next year, we treat him and he gets the big picnic for his Big 80th Birthday!

Oh it looks like so much fun! You are soooo lucky to have your parents that close to you. I wish mine were close enough that we could have parties. Instead, it's once a year...sigh...
