More birthday fun!

Our kids and grandkids came over to celebrate Bob's birthday and Fathers day.  We had such a fun evening!
We had supper together and then Bob got some fun gifts.

You all know how much Bob likes to garden.  Laura and Aaron gave him some plants to add to a new area he is working on.

Heather, Andrew, Andy and Nikki  had come up with a fun gift.  Earlier this year, he had posted something on FB about a site where you could purchase land in Scotland and receive a title of Laird, thinking it was pretty funny.  They decided to go ahead and do it.
This site sells the land, which is 1 square foot of land.  The land is actually part of a conservation project, making this area a nature preserve that can't be developed.  Once you have become a "land owner" you are a Laird or Lady of Glencoe.

 Here he is opening the gift, with his certificate stating he is a Laird.

And here is the certificate.

To make things even better, Laura made him a kilt and sash, and they ordered a Scottish hat online, so he could really look the part.  Unfortunately, the hat had some very questionable hair attached!

How do you like that hair?

 Alaina thought she would try out the outfit too.

And she made him this sweet card.

We had such fun, and so many laughs!

I LOVED Bob's gifts from his kids! What fun! I'm going to check out that site... And I love the kilt that Laura made! SO fun for the whole family to be in on this. Bob makes such a great model! :) When I saw the picture of Aliana I had to laugh. She surely was tickled! :) One thing about it, the Bruins sure know how to have a good time!

I did the same thing fir Bud one Christmas where he got deed to land. Brought him to tears. That was long, long, LONG AGO.

Loved this celebration. And I hope Bob knows the Scottish tradition when wearing kilts. (Wink)
