Happy Birthday, Grandma!


Grandma lived in the Philippines when Josiah was born. Mom and Dad sent a telegram when he was born. Because of the time difference, Josiah was born on the 10th in the Philippines...and the 9th in the U.S.A. They sort of share the same birthday.

Grandma is always willing to play with us. We love her visits, wherever we are living. She explored Spanish missions with us. She rode on a dog sled with us at the Iditarod headquarters. She walked on glaciers with us. She let dad take her out geocaching even though there are snakes in TX. She even jumps on the trampoline with us, which Mom says is doing pretty good for someone in their 60's.

Grandma always takes us to Dairy Queen when she visits. In MT, TX or AK.

Happy Birthday, Grandma. Did Grandpa take you to Dairy Queen? We wish we were there to help you celebrate.

Choosing Joy!

Sis: Bet we will be going to the Dairy Queen today after school. Believe me, 70 doesn't seem very old anymore...... however I have 2 years to wait. :):):) Believe me age, is often just what a person thinks it is........... I prefer to remain young!!!!!

Dad wished me happy birthday at midnight.

We sure do love playing with the kids. Dad is looking forward to his new knees with the hope he can walk more and hike etc. ME TOO!
