"Anticipate the day as if it was your birthday and you are turning six again." ~Mike Dolan
Turning six was done with lots of fun on Sunday when family all got together to celebrate our granddaughter's birthday. The birthday card we gave her was also a panda mask. And our gift was a digital camera, she LOVED the camera. Everyone tried out her Hula Hoop gift, but I was just not quick enough to catch Phil at it. Here you see her other grandmother mastering the dangerous neck maneuver. When I was a kid, I was Hula Hoop Queen, and my mom would yell at me. "Don't swing that thing around your neck; you'll break your neck!!!" No one yelled at anyone at this party for doing hoop tricks. But I could still hear my mom's voice in my head, and wanted to warn Anne that she might break her neck, it is hard to ignore a mom's warnings even after so many years. But I am no party poop!
“Good friend, follow your father's good advice; don't wander off from your mother's teachings. Wrap yourself in them from head to foot; wear them like a scarf around your neck. Wherever you walk, they'll guide you; whenever you rest, they'll guard you; when you wake up, they'll tell you what's next.”
