A Celebration!

This weekend we celebrated our son Mike's 46th birthday. Here we are, mom and son!

The restaurant we all went to had cows on the wall and milk bottle lights.

Here we all are! But if you look closely, SOMEONE is goofing off...

There, now that's better. That's me in the front, Phil taking the picture




Back home, gymnastics were in order to work off the calories.

Everyone had fun with little paper crowns!



Though Mike is now middle aged, I will always think of him like this!

They say that age is all in your mind. The trick is keeping it from creeping down into your body.

I see you used a new photo for your header, cows and then it appears in the post. Yes our children remain at all sorts of stages in our mind. Looks like all had a great time.

So happy to see you and your family like this! It is true, no matter how old our kids are, they are still Kids.. Kids in our eyes! Your grandkids are so adorable too, the house is filled with joyful noise... Marie is really good in her gymnastics!

Happy birthday to your son! Looks like you all had a great time together. Love that goofing-off picture :-) The milk bottle lights are very pretty!
Oh yes, no matter how old they grow, kids are always kids for parents :-)

Always seemed to me that middle age is something that we first keep on pushing forward for as long as possible - and then hold on to, as we find ourselves growing older still... :)
