Dad's 60th and Easter!
My dad turned 60 on the 20th and we've had a few celebrations over the past week that I wanted to share. He started his birthday by running the Atlanta half marathon. He did great and it was a beautiful morning!
That night we went to the Balfours for a combined 60th and 30th birthday dinner for Dad and Tyler. The Balfours, Willis, Abernathy's and Williams were all there to celebrate (minus James, Claire and Whitney). We had a great night with a Mexican feast and carrot cake for dessert.
Then last night we went to Il Giallo for a family dinner with my whole family minus little man, Collier. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner celebrating mom and dad's birthdays. The food was fantastic and we were sitting at a round table which is always a treat because you can talk to everyone. My family is large with nine of us so it's nice being able to talk to everyone at the table. All the kiddos and grandkids got mom and dad a new record player which they can hook up to their computer to transfer their record files into files on their computer. We added the Adele album to their collection as well.
It's not often we have all of us together for a meal so it was very special.
Today we celebrated Easter and had a nice lunch celebration with some of dad's closest friends at my parents house. Mom made a delicious luncheon feast and I made the cupcakes for dessert. We probably had around thirty of us there to celebrate dad. It was nice to see our family friends that many I only see a few times a year. We had a great afternoon catching up and enjoying each other's company. Dad felt very loved as he should. We had a great day!
We started our day at Mt. Bathel Methodist with Tommy's parents and finished our day with dinner at the Robinsons. We had a day filled with faith, family and friends. Happy Easter!
