A Very Special Day

Today is a very special day in our family:  my amazing father-in-law is celebrating his 90th birthday!
He and my mother-in-law are such vital, active people.  They still live in their own home, and enjoy life in a way that sets such a perfect example for everyone else in our family.  I am truly honored to be a part of his day today.  
We traveled to Belmond, Iowa, from San Antonio yesterday, meeting one of our daughters in Memphis and flying into Des Moines together and then driving up from there.  
Our youngest daughter just began her spring semester in NY and is unable to join us, but we know she is thinking about her grandpa today.

here is the birthday guy!
