Reason #353 for why I love my Parents

A few weeks ago we celebrated my Mom's birthday. She assures me that she turned 58 this year. Mackenzie made her a birthday hat for the celebration! It was a grand example of the masterful work of a five year old.

Here is the birthday girl in her beautiful crown!

My dad has a reputation for being a bit...cantankerous. He actually is a little proud that this word has been used to describe him in the past. But I'm here to dispell that myth, with solid evidence that he is really a loving and silly Grand father...

There aren't many grandparents who would happily wear this hat, and allow pictures to be taken, and take the time to read to their grandchildren while wearing the silly thing!

It's just another reason to love them and be eternally grateful that they are here and healthy.

2 Things:
1. Pops did not KNOW those pictures were being taken of him.
2. Of course he's an awesome grandfather!! He and I have food fights at the dinner table!! lol (something that caused Derrick to look a little cranky about might I add)!

I can't say I'm surprised.

They are awesome aren't they. That is the only thing I dislike about living far away is my kids did not get that interaction on a daily/weekly or even monthly basis. It is so awesome that they are still around. So if Mom is 58 how old am I because I can't be 46 if she is 58.

You may choose your age accordingly!
