What's it like to live to be 100 years old? Just ask Elizabeth Oates.
Oates turned triple digits Thursday and was surprised with a birthday party in her honor. An even bigger surprise was all of her loved ones in attendance.
Oates is one of five children, and she has two children herself. Completing her family are 19 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, and 7 great-great grandchildren!
So, what's her secret to life?
"Laugh a lot! I like people, I like things, I just enjoy life. I try not to take anything too seriously. I love life," said Oates.
Oates says she was very surprised all of her loved ones came together and "went to all the trouble" of having a celebration.
She said to her, her age is "just a number"!
