Yeap it is Monday and our big day that we had all been waiting for came and went just like that!!
Dad and Ron had quite the turn out yesterday!! I think we had between 85 and 90 people come to show their support for these very very up there in age people!!
We had a great Lasagna meal at noon for our family and close friends. Then after that at 3:00 we had the BIG BIRTHDAY celebration!! It was so much fun to see people come in and come up to me and say I know you and I would say SURE!! I know that I know you too.
Julie, Dad and Becky loving their grandpa!!
I had such a great time meeting my "old" friend Pat. We used to ride bicycles together and find the boys!! We had such fun together!! She brought her hubby, Charlie so we got to finally meet him. We just had the best of times talking and laughing and remembering things. I just love having friends!!

Three of my friends from State Farm came and we had a great time together. You know it was so hard to try to talk to everyone but i did try!! I did not want to leave anyone out.
We sang to Dad and then we sang to Ron!! I still cannot believe that Ron and I have had our parents for all of these years. We are truly blessed kids!!
After everyone left we all went to Monical's Pizza. This is a great pizza place here in Illinois that we just love and we miss. Nothing like their pizza!!
Some of us came back here to our home which now I can tell you about!! Last Saturday we bought a different motor home...THIS IS OUR SECRET...that you have been wondering about!! It is not new but new to us!! We just kind of closed our eyes and decided that we needed to get something that we can live in because we just both know this is coming!! This has two slide outs and give us a lot more room!! It is 35 ft. long also!! We are really enjoying it on this trip.
During our trip though we somehow got a nice little visitor in our new home! In the form of a little tiny brown field mouse!! YHEW!! I do not...and I mean DO NOT like mice!! We bought some traps...got up this morning and he is DEAD!! I feel so much better now. I will not have to shut the door to our bedroom and put a towel up against the door now!!
I have company now for breakfast so will have to finish up my post now!! We are so tired!! Today we are off to Rochelle, Illinois to visit more with our daughter and family!! We have to stop at Normal, Illinois where we lived for years and eat at Avanti's. We always took our kids there when they were little so we are all going there. Our son Jon is following us too.
I would love to come and visit ya'll but I can only get wireless when I can.
Thought for the day: "I believe...That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
