Alive and Still Kickin’

Arthur Marion Ferkin was born to Ole and Mabel Ferkin in Marshalltown, Iowa on May 5, 1917.  Last Saturday, we, his family gathered at the house on Trumball to celebrate his 95th year.

All four of Grandpa’s children were there as well as five of his grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.

We had lots of delicious food and got to hang out together, something the extended Ferkin Family doesn’t do all that regularly.

During the celebration, Field, the only grandchild that Grandpa Art ever spanked, attempted to turn the tables and get in a few birthday whacks of Grandpa.  Grandpa wasn’t game.  Watch the video to see the drama:

Here are some pictures from the party (click any photo for slideshow):
