Special Birthday

On April 20th my dad celebrated his 80th birthday.  We took the day and went on a birthday trip.  Early that morning we headed for Russell Springs, KY where our first stop was the Mighty Dollar where everything is a dollar!  We told him he could buy anything he wanted for his birthday, but he couldn't find anything he needed.  Then we headed for The Bread of Life, a restaurant near Liberty, KY.  They have a buffet and we were pleased to find out it was catfish day!  After a great lunch we drove around in the Amish community nearby and visited one of their stores.  On the way home we visited Mill Springs KY the site of a civil war battle and and a working mill.  It was a great day with perfect weather!

Later in the month on April 29 we had a big birthday celebration on the Ponderosa.  Family and close friends joined us to celebrate Dad's birthday.  Again we had perfect weather and a great time.  There was good food, lots of laughs, some little cousins who enjoyed each other's company and of course birthday cake and presents!
