Rockin' the Birthday Boat with Grandpa

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GRANDPA!






This is one of the kindest, gentlest men ever.


We all love him and are glad he belongs to us.


Our grandma is glad he belongs to her, too. =)

Some of the very best things about our Grandpa:

1. His happy, sunny nature.
2. His deep and profound thoughts.
3. His unconditional love for every one of us.
4. The cool Robbins Originals he makes for all the members of our family (really neat birthday and holiday cards).
5. His world famous "punniness."
5a. His understated but never underrated funniness.
6. His skill as a baker (and as a baker's assistant).
7. His willingness to run to the store at the drop of a hat. (How many men are willing to do that with a smile?)
8. His dedication to church callings, including special expertise as ward and financial clerk.
9. His kind and gentle ways.
10. His wise and thoughtful words (especially at circle time but definitely all of the time).
11. His status as supreme "salt of the earth" person.
12. The amazing way he loves and takes care of Grandma.

Grandpa brings a spirit of peace with him wherever he goes. He lives in the "Robbins nest," and we're very glad he rules our roost.

Have a SPECTACULAR day, Grandpa! See you tomorrow!!
