Last weekend, I drove to Oklahoma to celebrate one of my very favorite people.
He is turning 80 this month, so all of my Dad's side got
together to celebrate over the weekend.
We have not all been together since Michael and I got married.
I don't have the group picture, but here are all the cousins
with Grandma and Grandpa Baird
I had so much fun seeing everyone and catching up.
really old home movies
(like, movies of my Dad as a baby)
Ate yummy BBQ and cobbler.
And had a small worship-type service.
My Grandpa has dedicated his entire life to ministry through mission work in Norway,
to 30+ years of preaching, so this was perfect for him.
It was really neat to be able to have all our family together
worshiping and giving thanks for an incredible man.

|Sweet new friends|
My grandparents are amazing examples of a Christian couple,
and parents, and grandparents, and great grandparents.
Michael and I have learned so much from them,
and hope that we can be half as effective in ministry as they have in their lives.
Happy 80th Birthday Grandpa!!
I love you, and am so thankful for your influence in my life!
