Now...a funny story about Gramps's birthday:
We were eating supper on the river, celebrating Gramps's birthday--he turned 60 today! Jonathan was telling Hallie that Gramps would be 60...and tried to get her to count to 60. She counted along with him until a little past 20...then she didn't know the numbers. Jonathan counted super fast and then "out of breath" said, "SIXTY!" Hallie was wide-eyed and said, "Whoa!!" She was impressed. Later, Jonathan was simply trying to get Hallie to SAY the number 60. This is how it went:
Jonathan: Hallie, say "sixty".
Hallie: One, two, three...(loud sigh)
Jonathan: No, Hallie...just SAY "sixty"...just say the number.
Hallie: One, two, three, four, five...(head rolls, loud sigh)...I can't! I'll be too tired!"
We all got a good laugh out of that! :o)
Happy 60th, Gramps! Isn't it nice to know you're a number that makes Hallie tired. ;o)
