My son Chad and his wife Kris live in Greenville, Michigan near the Grand Rapids area. We will be visiting their home on Sunday May 26th, to honor Chad on his 47th Birthday. Hopefully, the weather will be warm enough, so we can grill out on their backyard porch. We did this a couple years ago on his Birthday and it was a lot of fun:) Chad doesn't do a lot of celebrating any more, now that he has reached middle age. He is too busy working a job, maintaining their home, and enjoying his life as a family man! I can't wait to see their remodeling job, what all they've done to their older home.

I hope you enjoy your visit with your son and his wife. You will have to take some pictures of the remodeling and share it here if they will allow it. A Early Happy Birthday to your son as well. I hope that the weather stays pleasant enough for you.

@kobesbuddy I started later than you - I was 29 before my son was born. I'll be 80 in December.

@jaboUK I was married at 18, which I don't regret doing. I only feel bad that my first marriage didn't work out.

That sounds like fun, and Happy Birthday to Chad. I wish my son was coming for Memorial Day weekend, but he plans to be moving..hopefully the next weekend he can come, if the weather is decent.

Chad doesn't get very many days off, from work. I'm glad he's not working this weekend.

@kobesbuddy It's a shame you can't visit more often. But at least it does make those visits all the more special.

@dodo19 Jay was working six days a week, which made it impossible to visit anyone.

They don't get very much company, because they're usually not at home. Both of them work full time jobs, that keep them busy. We haven't visited them for a while, so this will be a special day for all of us.
