It’s hard to believe that Jan’s dad will turn 87 next week.
We decided to celebrate a week early – since they have plans to drive Florida and will be gone on the actual day.
Yes – he is driving to Florida at age 87.
All of our kids were there to feast on Poppa’s favorite oyster soup (and a cheesy potato soup for those poor souls who don’t yet appreciate the warm milk and fishiness of oyster soup.)
Then we played games –
A mild game of Ticket to Ride that included lipstick and selfies and lots of belly laughter.
Steven and Laura won – again.
Yes – they beat Poppa on his birthday.
But he and Matt took second place.
And then – after German chocolate cake and ice cream and presents – we had a wild round of Pie In the Face.
A crazy game of Russian roulette that involves a giant hand covered with whipped cream and lots of laughter!
Anything to entertain Poppa on his birthday.
And boy was he entertained!
That was a birthday party to remember!
Here’s to many, many more!
Happy birthday, Poppa!
