Birthday's and Celebrations...

Its not everyday you celebrate someone's 90th birthday. What a cause for celebration.... 90 years is a long time. Just think of the history they have lived through; multiple world wars, The Great Depression, and countless presidents come and go. I love hearing all the stories. 

Mike's grandma turned 90 in June. The weekend was full of celebrations. Family was in Waterloo, IA from across the country. The weekend was jam packed, but a lot of fun. Here are a few pictures from the weekend's festivities...

I would like to point out the magazine in the bottom right corner. The woman featured is Grandma Dixie. She was often featured in this magazine which sold products for raising chickens (which, obviously was Grandma's livelihood).

This is my favorite picture of Grandma from that weekend. It was taken at her apartment as she opened a few gifts from us before the big festivities. There are few pictures of Grandma smiling- she hates her picture being taken. 

Happy 90th Grandma! Here's to many more!
