Unfortunately, Granddad was in the hospital over Alex's birthday. We did celebrate but it was quick and there are no pictures. During that time we also celebrated the Feast of Corpus Christi with our parish procession, always a beautiful event. This year Kevin and Alex were honored to be canopy bearers.
That week our nephew Matt stayed with us while his mother, my sister, stayed with Grandma and Granddad to help with his medical needs. The day after Granddad came home from the hospital we took this picture with 5 of his grandsons. You can see the strong Dutch blood from Grandma in their heights, but some of them are nearly clones of Granddad in temperament. :)
I think this is one of my all time favorite pictures.
