Ed Smith's 80th Birthday -- Dad was turning eighty, but he didn’t know about the party. And he certainly didn’t know that everyone was coming for the party. Dinner PicturesHe had been told that Rand & Beth would pick him up for dinner. All of the suspense was in trying to figure out which restaurant he would be taken to. So he was very surprised when we came barging into his house, while Dianne was asking if he wanted to come out and play. But until we walked into the Plantation House, he had no idea that all of his grandkids would be there, too.
It was at the restaurant Birthday Partythat he was invited to his Birthday Party, the next day, at the Church. There was a good turnout, and he was serenaded by both his kids, and the grandkids. Later, most of the grandkids showed up at his house to hang-out for the evening, but not until after we were able to take some family portraits.
