Today we had a family celebration for my Grandfather's 95th birthday. So, the entire 1st and 2nd generation kids made their way from various areas of the country to join in the celebration. While my Grandpa only lives 15 miles -- as the eagle flies -- from our home, others traveled from Bakersfield, Sacramento, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Washington to join us at his house in Fillmore, California.
A quick slide show and noted pictures from the birthday party:
A few static photos from the slide show:
A great shot of my Grandpa, Russ Hanscom on his 95th birthday.
Grandpa gets the Mexican food -- one of his favorites and one of ours. We picked up the food from La Cabana in Santa Paula, CA.
My dad and Dominic install my Grandpa's new 26" Vizio LCD Television.
My cousin Andy Hanscom and I catch up. Andy and I worked one summer on my Grandpa's ranch back in high school. Two memories we had: 1. My Grandpa did not like us working to music and had us turn if off. 2. We made a 50-mile bike ride to Ventura on our off day which I learned today that apparently my grandpa was not happy about. My cousin lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma these days.
A pretty good family photo take here including the 1st/2nd generations of the Hanscom family. Russ & Patty Hanscom with their kids Andrew and Crystal. Paul & Terry Hanscom with their kids; Kenny and Ashley Hanscom, Dominic & Kimberly Brown. Dave & Penny Hanscom. And of course, my grandpa -- Russell Hanscom!
