Life Goes On

Happy Birthday to my Dad who is 90 years old today.  The family celebrated Saturday, first at a park where Mom and Dad grew up, then moving to my nephews pub to beat the 106 degree temperatures.  It was a nice celebration. 

Journaling:  "Life hasn't always been easy and has its' share of disappointments, but like Dad, I'm a believer that if you're busy you don't have time to think about it.  He never seems disappointed in his family and that makes us all very happy.  James William Reeves Sr. at 90.  July 2012"

 I took the pages from the 6 X 6 inch Marine book I made about Dad's World War II experiences and temporarily framed those in a poster frame.
The scrapbook about Mom, which features the places they both lived as children and the history of both families was examined by many.


I gathered other pages about my Dad and placed those in a 12 inch binder.  Many family members asked for links to the history and I was able to oblige.  I'm very lucky to have my family and to be able to preserve our family history.
