APRIL is our CELEBRATION MONTH




Hi, everyone 
We have 4 birthdays in April... We have celebrated 3 of them, so far.....along with one anniversary.

Our beautiful daughter will have a birthday on the 29th....:) Yay...another CAKE. :))

THIS IS CATE, THE GREAT
...our little blonde GREAT-GRANGIRL.
4/8/ was her 4th birthday and 
her mom and dad threw her a HECK of a party on Sat., 13th
She had so many friends and family there, wishing her a

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CATE
...a beautiful AUNT BAILEY and Baby Hannah, a Cate Cousin...
so cute I wanted to kiss her about a thousand times......

Excuse me while I drool over 4 BEAUTIFUL GRANDGIRLS...
*HEAVY SIGH
I can't help it, ya'll.....
when one is blessed with 7 beauties,
one IS REQUIRED BY LAW
to post and brag about them EVERY CHANCE ONE GETS. !!

"Butterflies will dance, children will play.
Come join us for Cate's 4th Birthday."



The party was held at the SCIENCE SPECTRUM here in our town.

They had an exhibit of live BUTTERFLIES,  inside an enclosure that we could walk thru....
some of the most amazing and beautiful butterflies.

They were landing on our shoulders, arms, hair...softly, fluttering all around us for an experience that was AWESOME.
Here's Cate's dad with a beautiful butterfly on his shoulder....*smile 
 He stayed really still so we could get photos...
One landed in my hair but,  for the life of me, I couldn't stand still...jumping around all over the place.....lol


 Cate's mom, Jess, helping to look at the butterflies.....

O, Cate had such a fun time !!
"This museum aims to educate children about science and technology, and hits the bull's-eye more often than not. With three floors and 200 exhibits that take 1 to 2 hours to explore, the subject matter runs the gamut from animals and aquariums to space and flight, and many of the displays are interactive."









Our son, David
(Cate's granddad...boy, that sounds sooo funny to me...MY  little boy...a Grandad..???)

and his girl, Andrea, blowing a large bubble.

The Science Spectrum has sooo many fun things to do.

I took a photo of that lARGE sheet  of bubble...
see David and Andrea's reflection..?

...it looks like an abstract painting...:)

 Deeds and her BUBBLE REFLECTION.

oops, there's that BABY HANNAH again....
"you little cutie girl...come over here and let me get kisses on that sweet little neck..."


"Dear little 4 year old CATE, with BLUE icing on your mouth,
we had such a great time at your awesome party."
WE LOVE YOU,
 MEMAW & GRANDDAD

CATE THE GREAT is just adorable. Happy birthday to that sweet baby!! It MUST seem funny to think that one of YOUR kids is a grandparent. Kind of amazing, isn't it? And, I know that YOU don't feel OLD enough to have a son that old.

That bubble/picture is AWESOME. xo Diana

What a BLESSING to be part of your great grandchildren's lives. How blessed they are to have you as great grandparents - so interested in them and in life. Wonderful role models.

LV said...

It does not get any better than this. May you and family always share each others lives and keep a solid bond.

A HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all your gorgeous family, bj! Makes me smile to look at them. I see happy faces..

Kathleen Grace said...

Can it be? I remember when Cate was born! I don't blame you a bit for bragging on those beautiful Grands of yours:>) I would be smooshing and kissing baby Hannah's cheeks if I were you, so precious! Your family parties remind me of our own. We always get the whole family together for Birthday's, with Pinatas, asnd cake and ice cream and lots of great food. I love the idea of going someplace fun together, maybe we can do that when we have Grands of our own!

What a delightful place, to have a Birthday Party!

We have a butterfly area, in the capital district, but we've never been.

All your kids and grands and great grands and etc., are precious! Be so happy that your family lets you snap/show all the pictures of them, that your heart desires. :-)

We had a birthday on Sunday also. Our eldest Grand turned 23. Scares me that she is that old :)
Looks like you had an amazing day with all of yours and your amazing Cate the Great.
God is so good, all of the time.

Maureen said...

I haven't had to call one of my kids a grandma yet. I'm barely able to believe I have a daughter that is 40! That looks like such a fun day and you are absolutely right that you have to brag about your very attractive family!
