Family is all together—pictures begin

It is always fun to have all the family together.  So for a few days, there will be pictures.  Here are a few from the first evening:

Dan’s 70th birthday

Yesterday was the celebration of the beginning of Dan’s 70th year.  Is it around this birthday we start to believe that we are old?  Nope, not yet. 

Anyway, who cares about whether we are old, or not.  Dan had a big celebration for his 70th.  I let our friends know he had a big day coming up and suggested maybe we establish a card shower.  I thought about a surprise party, but June is just not a good month.  Our extended family is busy with crops and hay, it is hot, humid and buggy.  He really enjoyed all the cards from friends and family.  Thank you to everyone who sent one. 

Doug & Drue and family are coming home on Thursday.  I am looking forward to more celebrating and pictures. 

After the delicious steak and salmon, here is Dan with his cake—even with a little missing—and his grandkids.  Evan reminded us he celebrated a “seven” a couple weeks ago too.
