Grandpa's Birthday

While Grandpa was here, he had a birthday. I think he turned 65. We started the day by having birthday pancakes!!! I tried to make a pancake look like a cake with candles, but it looked more like a bunny or a tooth. It is the thought that counts, right? Cadence thinks that candles are so cool and loves to sing "Happy Birthday."After a big breakfast, Grandpa took Cadence to Lowe's to help her build her project. The project this week was a firetruck with wheels and a ladder that moved.

Since Melvin is a handy, fix-it man, he enjoyed helping his granddaughter to build this. Cadence was especially proud of her creation! She likes that it rolls.
After Lowe's, we went to a garage sale at Fredricksons and got comforters for the two twin beds upstairs. They both have yellow in so I think I will add some color to the rooms those beds are in by painting one wall yellow. We have leftover yellow paint from the office. I just get to find time to do that!
Barbara and I spent the day cooking. She made her delicious pecan pie!!! (And I mean DELICIOUS!) And I made Earth Bread for Cooper's blessing the following day. Melvin took a nap while we cooked.
Chris, Cooper and I went to Catholic Mass with Melvin and Barbara while my mom watched Cadence. I went to Mass with them two years ago. I enjoy seeing and experiencing how other people worship. I would enjoy going to a baptist service and any other, but don't want to go without knowing someone there.
After Mass, all of us met at Golden Corral to gorge. I ate a lot of shrimp, steak and ice cream!!! Grandpa got "Happy Birthday" sang to by the employees. Cadence loved it! I love eating out - because I don't have to fix the food!!!
Happy Birthday Grandpa!

That firetruck looks super cute! We need to take Bridget to one of those events. Do they give the kids an apron every time they come??
