My Dad Retired

My Mom, Dad, sister, her boys and my crew. My dad with one of his close friends and his chocolate cake

We returned home from the beach just in time for my dad's retirement party. My dad surprised us all at the beginning of June telling us he was going to retire. He has always told us he was going to work until he was 70. He has had some health problems and decided this was the perfect time. I have to say watching him at his party he seemed very happy and at peace with his decision. We are looking forward to having him home and see what God has in store for him.
He says he is going to rest for a few weeks and then maybe find something to do 2-3 days a week. My mom told him she could keep him busy with a honey do list. ;)
I also just posted our beach trip photos below so be sure to take a look below.
I can't wait to go blog hopping to see what all of you are up to.
