Today we're off not only celebrating the birthday of the US, but also the birthday of my grandpa. He's 90 years old today! (The picture shown above was taken last year on his 89th birthday.) So we'll be spending the day with him, on his farm, with many extended family, eating cake and cookies and talking and remembering. Hopefully, we'll even fit in a little street fireworks.
My grandpa is one that inspired me be a reader. He is amazing. He reads so much, and remembers every word he's read. He's like a walking encyclopedia! And every time I see him, he never fails to ask me, "Read any good books lately?" Either that or, "Hey, I read a great book recently!" If I was to pick his favorite genre, I would guess it was historical fiction.
So I plan to have a fantastic day with family today and I hope you all either having a wonderful Fourth of July or if not celebrating, a peaceful Sunday of reading!
