A 90th Birthday Celebration!
My (paternal) grandma turned 90 last week! We all went out on Saturday and took her to Sizzler, one of her favorite places. We stopped and picked up these giant balloons, which made for great photos. It was a lot of fun. Our kids have three great-grandmothers and no great-grandfathers. It's quite amazing to celebrate NINETY!! :)
My grandma loves her "hot toddy" every afternoon. Her favorite is brandy in orange cappuchino. She likes having a variety of liquers and other alcohol around, so we all get her these little tiny bottles all the time. She has quite an assortment of alcohol on hand - more than I do! LOL I had to take pictures of her with all her booze. My dad even got her a plastic flask as a joke.
We ate, had cake and ice cream, sang Happy Birthday (which Emily hates, hence this picture!), and took lots of pictures.
This is my cousin with Grandma. I only have two cousins, and I don't ever see the other one (on purpose!).
This is my brother and his wife, with the kids.
I took pictures of each individual family with Grandma and her 90 balloons, so that I can make her a collage to hang on the wall! This is the only picture of me, as I am always behind the camera. As you can tell, Emily was DONE by this point. It was loud in there and she woke up super early that morning.
It's not that common to take your 90 year old Grandma out to lunch! Strangely enough, another party came in to the room we were in as we were cleaning up. They were there to celebrate THEIR grandmother turning 90 also! I let them borrow our 90 balloons for pictures of their grandmother. :)
