World War 2 Veteran Turned 91 Years Old

My father-in-law  turned 91 years old last Saturday.  We surprised him a visit early in the morning and we cooked  breakfast for him.  My kids were very eager to help in the kitchen.
I remember when we  first did this (I forgot what occasion was it), my FIL said that we should do it  often and I could understand  why he likes it.  At his age, he doesn't really feel like cooking  for breakfast.   Sometimes, he would forget that he is cooking  and it get burned which he end up tossing in the garbage disposal so he would just eat snacks from here and there.
Anyway, we  just cook the   food that he  normally enjoy, nothing very special.
After we ate breakfast, we hang out at  his back porch  and took some photos with him.  
My own father died when he was 51 so when I came here in the US, I found a new father with my FIL.  I always thank God that even though I am thousand miles from my family back home, my family here treated me like their own.  To the  most wonderful father-in-law in the world, who happened to be a World War  2 Veteran,  happy birthday to you Dad.  May God give you more years of  good health so we can spend  more time with you.  We love you!

It is wonderful for chilren to grow up in contact with an older family member. It teaches the the value of age, wisdom and experience. It is also nice to have living history in your life.

My Mom will be 91 in November--she is also in great shape. Strangely enough she has just started not wanting to cook for herself either but goes out to eat quite frequently with either me or her friends!

That is so sweet of you guys to take care of him and spend time with him on his special day. I never got to meet my husband's dad who was a Navy, but it sure would have been nice to meet him. Lovely photos. And you look sexy! :)

Wow! He doesn't look like his age. He looks like still a very strong individual.

I have not met my father-in-law. He was long gone when I got married to my husband. :-(

This reminds me of my MIL mommy when she was still alive. We would go to her house before she went to the nursing home and we would clean her place, fix her something to eat and take her for a walk or a ride to the farm. She would always want to go somewhere, which was understandable for her age. :) That is so sweet of all of you. I love how kids are willing to help. :)
