We went over at Sta. Rosa, Laguna to visit my hubby’s grandma who just turned the ripe age of 89. Yes, you read it right. That’s 89 years of existence!
Looking at Lola Puring one can’t help but admire her. She always has a smile on her lips and a kind word to greet us when we arrive. She can barely hear but that doesn’t stop her from communicating her delight when her grandkids – and now her great grandkids – visit her in her home. She tells us stories from the past which hubby and his brother would be too young to remember otherwise.
Since it’s rare that her grandkids get to be with her at the same time we took it as an opportunity to take a picture. Considering that it’s hard to take a picture of one child, let alone four it is a miracle that we were able to take this lovely photo. Just look at their faces – all of them are smiling!
Afterwards, the older boys couldn’t wait to show their antics. Here they were playing at the front yard.
Little Zack meanwhile got an impromptu piano lesson from his grandfather.
Which got interrupted because he had to go to the eago toilet to do number two. LOL!
At dinner time we took out the cake so the birthday celebrant can blow the candle. My FIL’s birthday was on the first week of November which we weren’t able to celebrate so we added another candle for him too.
Happy 89th Birthday, Lola Puring! Thank you for taking care of your apo when he was just a little boy. He grew up to be a fine man and we owe it to you a lot. May you have more birthdays to come!
