Happy Birthday Big Pappa!

Alex - truly old today! Wishing you a happy 60th birthday and many more to come. Since there's no absurd Jojo copy and paste birthday posting I felt like I had to fill the massive void left on the blog. Below, please find my favorite google quotes about turning 60, in order or increasing absurdity. Thank you google.

One starts to get young at the age of sixty and then it is too late.
Pablo Picasso

Old age isn't so bad when you consider the alternative.
Maurice Chevalier

A man of sixty has spent twenty years in bed and over three years in eating.
Arnold Bennett

I wanted to show I had balls at age 60. Just because society says I'm old, doesn't mean that I am. I'm pursuing happiness, even if it makes the people around me unhappy.
Sylvester Stallone
Why he brought character Rocky out of retirement to make sixth and final instalment for movie Rocky Balboa.

Men grow old, pearls grow yellow, there is no cure for it.
Chinese proverb

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
Groucho Marx

Be kind to your kids, they'll choose your nursing home one day.
Author Unknown

Obviously the last one is my favorite... we will one day pick your nursing home and select what brand of adult diapers you should wear, so if you'd like the double soft pampers type... be nice to your kids! I like porsches and ferraris.

Happy birthday big pappa - look forward to celebrating your bday and Nathan's.

Some More Beach Pics

Classic St. John...

The boys riding in our beach mobile...

View of main town in St. John - Cruz Bay. St. Thomas is in the background, which is the main island where we flew into.

Caneel Bay - the nice resort inside the national park. All of this used to be owned by the Rockfellers and they donated it to the national park. We went to one of the 7 beaches on the resort several times (honeymoon beach) - super nice and very quiet.

The fam - Lucas and his 'surf' board
