My grandfather turned 94 today and in order to gather everyone together from across the country and in their quarantined homes by cousin set up a special Zoom session for everyone to attend. We got nearly everyone and I think it was something that he enjoyed despite having some difficulty getting connected. Once he was though we all got a chance to talk, play games and have a lot of laughs.

We actually went and visited Grandpa yesterday. We socially distanced in the backyard but the kids were there and Grandpa was very impressed that they were both taking karate. The kids got to ham it up a bit then. I attempted to get him set up and ready to go for Zoom then but that did not happen so well. I then tried to help later that night and that was worse. When we started the Zoom my cousin was on the phone with im trying to talk him through it. Eventually he was able to get on for the first Zoom session then it hit the end and we had to start another and well, he went to Facetime for that. But, it was a good effort.

Today was my 46th birthday. It was a very nice day. We had a nice morning and I did a special LEGO Lunchtime Livestream building a LEGO Marvel Super Heroes set. The kids and Allison went to visit one of Eva’s friends and did a birthday drive-by to celebrate her birthday. Eva gave her friend one of the new masks that she had made.

So, while they were gone I did my Livestream and finished once they returned. They picked up Wendy’s for lunch. We enjoyed some burgers and frostys. Then we had a family Zoom session. Everyone sang Happy Birthday to me. It was nice to have a Zoom session where the entire family was on including brief appearances from my brother-in-laws.

Then I finished up some videos and we watched Holy Thursday Mass together. Dinner was steak and hot wings. We cleared out some of our freezer space with some things that had been there a bit of time. Dinner was good and then after dinner we had some special treats of cookies and lemon squares. It was a very nice birthday, glad to be happy and healthy at home.
