My Dad turned 80 today.....

Today is my Dad's 80th birthday. I had a small family party for him tonight at my place, with all his favourites - asian style chicken and pork, rice, stirfry vegetables and for dessert Chocolate Apple Pie (instead of birthday cake). The top photo is my dad (John) and my dog Tess. We are certain Tess is wishing him happy birthday!
The second photo is Dad and I or "Pa" to my daughters, his grandkids. Pa is a really no fuss kinda guy and he had the best time tonight, I am so happy. I made him an album full of photos from his life (mentioned this my last post) and he was so happy. Great day here.
Just to add to the greatness of the day, remember the baby quilt I made? Probably two posts ago, well baby came a little earlier than planned - today. No details, OR NAME, but HE and mum are doing well.

Your Dad looks like a young 80, and Tess is looking like she'd like a beer.
