Happy Birthday Grandpa!

I was going to post about the party that my Mom threw for my Grandpa on Saturday but she did such a beautiful job on it, there is nothing else to say.  Please go and read it, it's great, click here!

The only thing I will share with you about that is the bbq chicken salad I made.  Have you had the one from BJ's?  My Mom and I have been sharing this salad the last couple of times we've gone.  It's so good.  So we recreated it.

And I'm so proud to say, I made those onion rings.  So easy, and so yummy.  Next time I make them, I'll post how I did it.  I had taken a million pics when I was making them only to see that I didn't have a memory stick in the camera.  Woops. :)

Last night we were invited for a birthday glass of champagne and cake at my Grandpa's for his actual birthday.

We never decline an invite to a party.

GiGi made the girls some very yummy icecream cones while we were there.  I think it's safe to say that they enjoyed them.  And yes, that is dinner on Riley's face from home.  No, I did not clean her up after dinner.  Yes, I have given up on the mother of the year award.

My Grandpa is such a nice guy.  He always has a smile on his face, and he's always the first to give you a hug and say hello.  This man loves his family.

And knows how to celebrate a birthday!  Two pineapple upside down cakes in 4 days?  And 2 parties?  And the phone didn't stop ringing the entire time we were there with friends and family wishing him a happy birthday.

And the dining table was filled with birthday cards.

Happy 80th Grandpa!  Cheers to many, many more!  We love you bunches!
