Grandpas 85th

This past weekend we got to go to a big birthday bash for grandpa at one of my husbands cousins house, and boy can she throw a party!! It was so much fun. It was a camping theme since grandpa loves camping. We rolled up to find cots with fake bodies laying on them, bandannas, and stuff bears, and moose on the walls. People were in camo and the food was so dang good! I especially enjoyed the little hot dog cookers she had....you go Jackie :) The kids had a blast playing in the back yard in this enormous blow up bouncer, and a little jungle gym. Grandpa was so happy to have all of his family there, besides our family who live out of state. They surprised him by inviting his 2 brothers and his sister to the party as well. It was just so fun to be able to get a picture of these siblings while they were joking to each other about how old they are and that this might be their last picture together. Even though they claim they've been saying that for awhile now, every time they get a picture taken. They were too funny. Chris has a great extended family and it was nice to see them and meet some that I have never had the chance to see before. Hopefully we'll get together more often. Here's some pictures of all the action. I wish I would've taken a picture of the food and the hot dog cookers. Don't worry Jerrianne we have our eye out for them for you too :)

Excited to blow out the candle on his PB&J sandwich
Getting some help from his great grandkids
Grandma always giving that sweet smile!.....ok ok for all of you who really know grandma she was just embarrassed that I was taking this picture
Eating....what she does best.
No we did not mean for her to look like she had moose horns but hey Mark probably would've held up his hands behind her head anyways the little prankster :)

Not sure what is going on here with that bandanna lol
