"Kenneth W. Wachter, the chairman of the department of demography at the University of California, Berkeley, has estimated that by 2030, more than 70 percent of 8-year-olds will likely have a living great-grandparent. It is a phenomenon that Kevin Kinsella, the head of the Aging Studies branch of the United States Census Bureau, has referred to as a great-grandparent boom."
Well, Jude is just one of three great-grandchildren benefiting from this great-grandparent boom...especially the celebration part! It's Pop-Pop's 95th birthday and four generations came on this special day to be with Pop-Pop, and wish him many more to come! I don't know who was more tickled to see the other, but Jude and Pop-Pop seemed to get quite a kick out of their time together.
And big kudos go out to Jude for his willingness to put down the cupcake long enough to snap some great pictures, for a memorable day!
P.S. Jude is also available for weddings, graduations and bar-mitzvahs!
P.S.S. How many of you are already into 4th generation families? We'd love to hear about it!
Here Come the Great-Grandparents
Happy 95th, Pop!
Bubbie and Jude...Elliot was there, too!
