Anyone who wishes to celebrate Dad's birthday is welcome to do so. Dinner is at 4pm on Monday. Please rsvp.
So I deliberated.
1. Invited to one of the happiest places on earth.
2. Celebrate my awesome Father in law.
3. A chance to see siblings and cousins.
4. No cooking for me.
It took me about 1.2 seconds to decide.
Count us IN!
Most of Bill's siblings were there with their families. We are up to 18 grandchildren on this side of the family.
The proud matriarch, Mom-Mom.
And the birthday boy, "Gramps."
We were inside....
....we were outside.
....and some of us were little kids who snuck a seat at the big kids table!
Happy birthday, Dad! I hope you had a nice day as we all invaded your home. I know we sure did.
I was thinking about Bill's family on the drive home and this is what I came up with.
I really like them.
I like each one of them. I like being with them. It's easy to be with them. I know people can't always say that about their families. I am blessed to be married into one of the best, second only to my own side of the family, who are pretty great as well.
And that concludes this MDW trilogy.
