Grandpa’s 86th Birthday

January 27, 2008 Sarah Coggins

A brief post as I’m a bit under the weather today fighting a migraine. Not so much pain at the moment as a drug induced haze courtesy of Zomig. But it’s much better than how I felt earlier. I’m just slower and run down feeling. Needless to say, no creating has occurred.

Yesterday, we traveled a bit northwest to visit my grandfather for his 86th birthday. Below is a photo of me, the birthday boy & my sister. All in all, there were 10 of us for the celebration. We had a good time catching up. And Grandpa enjoyed a couple slices of his favorite cake – coconut.

Grandpa's 86th Birthday

Just realized how behind I am in my scrapbooking. Although I visited with Grandpa for his birthday last year (and have pictures), I have not scrapped it yet. I did make a page 2 years ago for his 84th which I’ll share:

    You're so lucky to be able to drive a short way to see your kin. Great photo of ya'll.

    So sorry you are having migraines. Hope you get better soon. I know I'm having neck and head-base pain today. Bummer.
