Sparky saved this item for last since he likes to think of himself as old (now that he is 65!) and faithful and it seemed fitting! He visited the Yellowstone National Park to watch the Old Faithful Geyser erupt! Old Faithful was discovered in 1870 making it a little bit (a lot bit) older than Sparky. This geyser erupts around 20 times a day, getting to heights between 100-180 feet. The water temperature can even measure at 204oF with a steam temperature measured at 350oF. Sparky is very excited that he has completed every item on his birthday bucket list, and is amazed at all the fun he has had this year along the way. Now, he is ready for a nap!     


Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he wanted to accomplish between his birthday and the end of October. Now that he has checked them all off his list, look back at all of them through the photo album.
