Papa's 90th Birthday Weekend

We started out the birhtday celebrations on Friday night at our house. All the relatives who had arrived to town came over for b-b-q. The night ended early, as we all had a busy Saturday to prepare for.Papa (my mom's dad)

Elaina and Gramps

Saturday morning we met in the Hospitality Court at Fairhaven, for a big party. Almost all of Papa's family were present. Everyone enjoyed spending time catching up on all the "latest news".

We didn't plan a color scheme, but we had to get a picture of those of us who thought alike that morning. (Aunt Barbie, Melissa, Jammie, Anna, Myself, Becky and little Sunita)
Of course we had to bring some toys for the children.
Some of the cousins met for the first time. Will and Cal had a lot of fun with Elaina and Greta

Papa sees his birthday gift. (A picture frame that plays digital photos. Everyone compiled photos from as far back as Papa's own baby pictures, all the way up to present day, and put them in random order to play continuously.)
Everone else sees his gift. What fun to watch.
The Geaschel kids and cousins: Natalie, Josh and Emma.
David and Drew, with Will and Cal.

Papa has owned 36 cars. He recently gave us his written list, and Bill and I found similar cars on the internet and printed off the pictures for him
