Saturday was Dad McGuire’s birthday. He wanted to get his chimney fixed for his present, so Allan and one of hisÂ brothers went to help Dad. Â Then everyone who lived close enough, came by for a surprise party.
Dinner was goodÂ andÂ the cake was excellent–we have some great bakers in the family! Â But the best time was watching everyone interact.
The cousins, no matter the age, played a game of baseball following rules theÂ girlsÂ made up to make it a more even game. Â Nothing could make it really even; the three boys were mostly older than the four girls on the other team and the babies kept switching teams or being “ghost” players or base holders. Â So, the rules got sillier as the game went along.Â The adults enjoyed the game, but mostly sat around talking about whatever.
Happy Birthday Opa!
