On May 9th this year my grandmother will be 101 years old. Last year she had a big huge party for her 100th birthday. Wow, she is pretty amazing.

Today I was flipping through the pages of my 11 year old's composition book from school. Here is what I found on one page.

My Summer - Wyoming

I went to Wyoming to celebrate my great grandma's 100th birthday. She rode a Harley Davidson motorcycle. Then the whole town made a talent show for her. The fire fighters also celebrate. Every fire truck engine, rescue units, and marshals went by the motel with their lights and sirens going off. Then 100 fireworks blew up the night.

Yeah, that is pretty much what happened last year. It was just cute to read it from the view point of a then 10 year old.

Wow! I didn't realize all the fire trucks went by the motel, but I suppose they did so they'd be ready in case anything happened that shouldn't. Larry did tell me that the guys were all on standby. Joe's wagon ride must not have been as impressive for him. No bells and whistles on the horse or the wagon. Gma said "NO parties this year".

Oh, that's so cute that he wrote about it! It was the party of a lifetime!

They can sum it up can't they. That was a fun party. Gma says that this year it is not an important one. She is so funny. We are thinking of taking a drive down on the 9th to wish her the best.
