We had a small celebration for my father in law last Saturday.
The nicest thing, apart from cake and other treats (like Champagne Cocktails) of course, was to construct the Titanic, one of his birthday gifts.
It was a really symbolic event, where everybody got involved and contributed to their capacity and according to interest.
The engineer and the architect.
The project manager and the budding artist.
The media expert.
Practical volunteers and thinkers.
The impressed public cheering everybody on.
The captain exercising the final quality control.
It was a great afternoon, making me think that this is really what family is all about. Doing great things. Going beyond what we can do by ourselves. Everybody does their bit. Nobody gets left behind.
