Not many people live long enough to have the chance to meet their great-granddaughter, but Vivian Dahl was lucky enough to have this feat. She even got to celebrate her birthday with her great-granddaughter. Little Eloise was born 99 years to the day after her great-grandmother.
So, it was only natural that Vivian and Eloise should celebrate her birthday together. Little Eloise was sitting on her great-grandmother’s lap and was clearly having a great time, smiling happily in the pictures.
To celebrate this unique milestone, the family organized a joint birthday party for them in Lake Crystal, Minnesota. Vivian Dahl has lived here all her life and has no plans to move.
Vivian, who has just turned 100, also shared some advice on the secret to longevity.
“No smoking, no drinking, and no candy,” she said, adding that she has always tried to eat healthy and believes that this has helped her live a long life.
Vivian is incredibly lucky to be celebrating her 100th birthday, and spending it with the youngest member of her family makes the day even more special.
