Happy Birthday "Bumpa" Mike

Today is my husband's 54th Birthday. We celebrated yesterday with the family. Here he is with the grand-kids. Noah, Carter, Abby & Gray. It is a job to get all 4 to pose in one spot, especially on Bumpa. Gray named him Bumpa.... Cause it sounds like Grampa. Mike does not like for people to fuss over his birthday. He would rather let it pass by, but he is so deserving of a special day just for him. He is a hard worker and is always there for people in need. He puts himself last so many times.
I wanted to get him something he would really enjoy, so I got him tickets to a concert to hear his favorite singers Celtic Women on April 6, in Chicago. I thought we could ride the train up there and have a nice day in Chicago. Mike has always loved Irish music and folk type songs. He loves Peter, Paul & Mary, which we have been to their concerts as well. We went last year to see Celtic Women and really enjoyed it.

It is also my Great niece, Madigan's Birthday.....
Madigan is holding Abby. Her brother Corbin is on the left. Abby visited them in Louisiana a few weeks ago. Corbin & Madigan are my sister's beautiful grandkids......

Hi Rhonda! Thanks for the hearty blog welcome! Your grandchildren are precious and I can't believe how big that baby girl is already! We have six grandchildren all under six in our family, and wow, what a task to get them all looking at the camera at the same time! Good job!
