There are a lot of good things happening everyday.

I am writing this to tell about the big surprise I had for my 94th birthday, Friday, April 16.

I had coffee and cake on Friday night at my house. When I opened a gift here was a ticket to the Twins game on Sunday. There was also a Twins shirt with Twins on the front and Grandma 94 on the back. So I thought my daughter and her husband were taking me. When they picked me up, their daughter and granddaughter were along. I thought how nice! They are going to see the new ball park, too. But behold when we got to the park and our seats, there were 52 of my family members waiting. What a welcome! What an uproar of “Happy birthday, Grandma!” I just stood there in awe. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. There were five generations of them. The Twins didn’t win. The Target Ball Park is really nice.

Then on the way home, they had made reservations at Harry’s Restaurant in Lakeville. Most everyone stopped to eat. How everyone could keep a secret, I don’t know. I love you all. God bless you.
