The big 65 - - -



So, family and friends surprised me with a 65th birthday party August 13th! Our younger son, Brian, phoned me from my sister's driveway in town (he lives 4 hours away)and said he's running late for work so, "A quick HB,Mom." I was in the pool so missed his call and phoned back apologizing. Little did I know all my kids were 10 minutes away, ready for a big surprise.

Mark and MiHwa and Brian drove up, booking time off work as did my brother and his partner. Dan's still working so had to book off. My sister and BIL helped as did long time friends.

I walked out to the patio expecting only my sis and BIL. Words can't explain the surprise. Your mind kind of blanks. Thanks everyone. xx 00

Sounds like a loving family celebration much deserved. It's my turn next year for 65. As neat as your party sounds, I'm hoping no one will try to surprise me. They would only catch me in the hen house or in the goat pen and filthy dirty:)

Oh Jean what a GREAT birthday. I just turned 63 this past June and my two daughters, two grandsons (now I have three), my son in law all surprised me for mine. They live in CA and we are in Nevada. Best present I ever got! You all look so happy in your picture. So happy for you. Happy belated birthday to you!
