King of the Castle!

Regardless of our age, our birthday's should be filled with fun from the time we get up until bedtime! Grandpa Tilton is the "King of the Castle" most days anyway, but we tried to make the day special for him last Saturday. We went to his favorite BBQ hangout and tied on the old feedbag, we came home and had cake and ice cream and then opened presents!

But if you asked Grandpa his favorite thing about the day, he'd most likely say the time he spent with Great Grandson's. Deep conversations that he now feels driven to share. Words of wisdom, bits of advice, even stories from long ago when he was a boy.

While Grandpa advises the boys, Stephanie and her Grandma share secrets in the kitchen.

 I can hear giggling but I don't have any idea what they were talking about!

Later Stephanie shows Grandma her Ipod pictures...

"just do this Grandma"


Texas pictures, treehouses and Easter egg hunts..

Now Grandma wants an Ipod!

  3. Looks like everyone had a wonderful time at the celebration. I've had an ipod for almost 2 years and just now learned how to use it thanks to one of my grandsons.
