On Saturday we celebrated our granddaughter Irene's 16th birthday.
We joined Jill, Irene and Isaac at their house about noon, and the first thing we learned is that Irene already had her Driver's License!She has been driving with a learners Permit for a year, and has completed her drivers ed classes and tests. All she needed to do was turn 16. And now she has!
Jill has turned the mini van over to her. Irene can now drive herself to school and track practice, which starts in person on Monday. Jill is thrilled. Her chauffeuring days are over.
Then we were off for a silly, fun time at Spring Fest at the state fair grounds in Puyallup. It was mostly a drive through event and we mostly drove around finding fair food to eat.There was a shared Earthquake burger and brick of french fries for Jill and the kids, I had my fair favorite Crusty Pup, Tom found a yummy deli sandwich, and of course we had nutty ice cream bars on a stick.
There were a few animals to drive by and wave at, and I was kind of relating to a piggy by the way I was eating. :-)
The kids played some carnival games, and won some prizes.
Then Grandpa and I stayed in the shade - it was 80 degrees and hot for us - while Jill and the kids took a breezy ride.
Back at Jill's house we chilled as Isaac went to work, Jan joined us, and Jill cooked us a delicious birthday dinner followed with birthday pie.
