2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015; and those blog posts tell a lot about Harry 'through the years' - how he has and hasn't changed at all. And the following pictures will show how he's changed physically 'through the years' - sometimes changing a lot in a short time and sometimes not changing much at all.
We also visited Dan and Teresa who were visiting the Tampa area to look for a house and we got to accompany them on part of the search. (Here are Dan and Tessa at their hotel pool)
In April we visited Dave and Patty in Virginia for a few days
On the way home we were able to visit Dave where he was going to Colonel school in Carlisle, PA. Here's the basement of the century old house where Dave had an apartment in the spooky attic.
And in May we spent a few days in Pella, Iowa with Lori and Marcus to enjoy the annual Tulip Festival.
Then in June we headed for Norfolk VA for Dan's graduation from Colonel school
and to help him in his move to Tampa where he would join up with Teresa.
From there we headed back to Virginia for David's high school graduation.
On the way home, we were able to visit the beautiful Juniata Campus where David was already attending his indoctrination.
In July we had a wonderful visit from Amber and our five great grandchildren.
And in August we visited Amy and her family at their Waffle Farms campground in Michigan. Amber and her family were also there so we celebrated three birthdays in one evening (Tracy, Chris, and Dane's).
September was fairly quiet but in October we were able to attend and celebrate the birth of a brand new great grandson, Knox.
November was Thanksgiving and December sees us planning and preparing for our upcoming trips to Gulf Shores and Sanford, Florida. So you can see that Harry has had a very busy year.
And there's more I should say about Harry. I've said it all before but it becomes truer and more obvious every year. Harry is considerate, kind, loving, meticulous, and helpful.
He like's bike riding (at least he's done it once since I've known him. lol),
grand babies and great grand babies,
and the Cubs - yesterday
He's a good athlete and a good sport. Last year at the Christmas house the boys were going to put a spell on him and he ignored them so they thought to take it a step further. Here's out it played out and resulted in one of my favorite pictures of all time.
So he's definitely fun-loving. And he's easy-going, sweet and just about perfect. I am so blessed to be able to spend my life with him.
So happy birthday again, Harry. I hope it was half as wonderful as you which would mean it was amazing. I love you!
