Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our other wheels. When we are not vacationing check in for updates, although less frequent, about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Happy Birthday Don!

Well here we are and October is almost over.  Besides Halloween that means it is Don's birthday.  Don is very fortunate he doesn't share his birthday month with anyone in the family.  So he always gets his own cake and party.  Haha

This is a special year for him, as he turns 60.  It is hard to believe he has been retired form the government for 5 years already.

I can't begin to capture the essence of what an amazing man Don is. Besides my best friend who can be talked into doing almost anything I want, he is a loving dad and grandpa. No one loves their kids more than Don. And his commitment to his family is a strong and steady force in our circle. We love you so much!

Of course as is the case when a special occasion comes around, I had to have a party!

In addition to the usual "Smith basement party" guest list, we were thrilled to have Ken and Brenda spend the weekend with us as well.

Here is Don with the loves of his life.

Besides getting ready for the big party October has been a time of reconnecting with the kids, visiting tons, and enjoying life.  Not much else to report.  Everyone's health is great and we are happy!
