We had great fun traveling to MO the first weekend in May for my Grandpa Brennan’s 85th birthday party! I was so glad he could make it as the day before he fell and was banged up complete with a broken wrist! He was still in physical therapy for his injured shoulder from a previous fall! Wishing him a speedy recover! He’s always been a very active guy!
We met outside of Crane MO near my aunt Lisa’s house at this nice little spot. There was a covered, screened in building with a small kitchen and bathroom.
The kids had tons to do…
Play down at the creek-
Swing on the tree swings-
There was also a “jumpoline” (trampoline) and swing set with slipper slide and teeter totters.
We had a yummy dinner of BBQ and all the fixin’s followed by birthday cake of course!
Here’s the man of honor- Luckily as scared as my children are of Santa, they aren’t scared of Great Papa!
First time in a while that all 8 of Grandpa’s kids have been together-
Other cute pics from the beautiful day-

Diane & I’s attempt at our traditional picture together…
It was raining as we arrived, but turned out to be beautiful weather! There was an air of sadness for me knowing I won’t see several of these family members for a while…we traditionally do Thanksgiving together, but we are unsure what Thanksgiving will look like for us this year…
