Guess who has a Birthday Tomorrow?

My Sweetheart,  George Emery Adams,  turns 69 tomorrow... Go over to his blog (click HERE) and wish him a Happy Birthday!!!!  Above is a picture of the "Love of My Life" ---when we were hiking somewhere.   He was being a monkey and doing some rock-hopping to get better pictures!!!!! ha... Below are more pictures of the Birthday Boy!!!





In 2007,  when George turned 65,   I gave him an "Over the Hill"  Birthday Party with his family in Hendersonville, Tn.  He got some crazy (as you can imagine) 'black' gifts that year...  The picture above shows some "Over the Hill" flip-flops...   I love this picture of George and his sweet Daddy.





Also in 2007,  we continued to celebrate that big birthday by taking a trip north to visit Clifty Falls State Park near Madison, Indiana.   The picture above is quite appropriate since the big rock George is standing beside is named CAKE Rock.... How's that for a birthday cake?????? ha ha





In 2008,  we took a trip to Cloudland Canyon State Park in GA.  Cloudland Canyon has some of the prettiest waterfalls we have ever seen...   The picture above was taken in our cabin at Cloudland Canyon.





In 2009,  we were at Mt. Nebo State Park on March 9th, one of our favorite places in Arkansas.  We love this place so much that we go back there every year.  This year the dates are near the end of March.  I cannot wait!!!!





And in 2010,  we visited Serenity Falls for his birthday, and stayed in a cabin at the base of this gorgeous waterfall.   This is another of our favorite places.

We're taking a little blog break to celebrate --so I won't be blogging again until Friday... Hope you have a great week..  Be sure and pop over to George's blog and say Happy Birthday... He is truly the nicest man I have ever known, and God certainly blessed me when George came into my life.   Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!!!

Hugs,

Ahhh---it's great to know that our first act isn't our last and that the love of your life can come when you're older! My 2nd act and love of my life celebrates in April.
I think it's wonderful that you two can get away and celebrate by staying in cabins and hiking. He looks like quite a happy, sweet guy.
Enjoy your time away with him!

That last picture had better be in a frame and on a wall in your home! What a great picture of you both! Happy Birthday George! Glad you snuck in to Indiana to see Clifty Falls. It's like at the other end of the Indiana universe from us, but I have been there or at least near there..... I wasn't very old!

Have a great break as you celebrate!

Hi Betsy, I am sure your husband will have a thrilling birthday tomorrow. I sure like that picture of the waterfall. By the way, we went to Ozone Falls yesterday and the waterfall was roaring. My husband went half-way down the hill while I stayed top-side to take a few pictures. Have a great day tomorrow and stay dry.
