Grandpa's 90th B-day/Newport Beach!

This past weekend my grandpa turned 90!! I cant believe it! He doesnt seem 90 at all! He is in such good health and is totally aware of everything going on! He knows who I am and who my husband and son are which is pretty awesome for a 90 year old! Anyone who were to talk to him would think he just turned 80 at the most! I love him to death! Grandpa I am so glad we were able to spend this special day with you! We wish you the best in your 90th year! We cant wait to celebrate your 100th birthday!! We went up to California to celebrate his birthday. Two of my uncles and my mom put together a HUGE party for him! It was so nice! They did an amazing job! There was over 60 people there and I am pretty sure I only knew about 10 of them! We hardly ever see our extended family and so it was nice to finally meet and reunite with everyone! The party however was not kid friendly at all! My uncles house is so nice and Nate was having a field day trying to explore and touch everything! There were only 4 kids there under the age of 14 so they didnt think of doing anything entertaing for the little ones! Thank goodness my husband is so amazing and watched him the whole time and we were there for almost 6 hours! My sister was there with her 2 little kids so Nate had fun hanging out with them. It also helped that there was a ton of balloons because Nate loves balloons! He was entertained by those for awhile! The party was at my Uncles house in Yorba Linda which is only like 20-30 minutes away from Newport. Skyler, Alena, Nate and I went to Newport Beach saturday morning before the party and it was so much fun! I have never been to Newport and it has been a long time since I have been to the beach! It was such a beautiful day! No wonder why so many people want to live there! The weather was PERFECT!! Nate played in the sand and then we went down and put our feet in the water and let the waves splash us! Nate loved it until a big wave came and soaked us! The water was freezing! Nate loved chasing the seagulls! We went and walked along the pier and watched different people doing funny things! Sometimes is nice to sit and watch people...there are some interesting ones! Then we left and started driving to my uncles and then I remembered why I will never live there! The traffic is horrible! Well this post is getting long enough so here are some pictures of our fun weekend!

Looks like you had alot of fun! That is my old stomping ground...we lived right up the road from Newport in Huntington Beach. Newport was the hangout when I was in HS! And I totally agree with the traffic!!! When we go visit, it quickly reminds me why I am happy to be here!! Glad you had fun!

Blake was about that age when we went to Newport Beach. Crazy huh? You will be so glad you had a chance to have Nate know his great grandpa. How special! I'm glad Skyler ended up going with you.
