Saturday was Dad McGuire’s birthday. He wanted to get his chimney fixed for his present, so Allan and one of his brothers went to help Dad. Then everyone who lived close enough, came by for a surprise party.
Dinner was good and the cake was excellent–we have some great bakers in the family! But the best time was watching everyone interact.
The cousins, no matter the age, played a game of baseball following rules the girls made up to make it a more even game. 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. So, the rules got sillier as the game went along.The adults enjoyed the game, but mostly sat around talking about whatever.
Happy Birthday Opa!
