A big day


My Grandmother had her 95th birthday in May.  We all headed to where she lives to have some food, fun, laughs, stories, and cake!  I saw friends and cousins I hadn't seen in a while.  We talked with Grandma's "baby" brother, who is 91 and caught up with everyone.  This is the second grandparent to reach this age and overall my family members have some serious longevity. 


Here's Gram, showing off some of her candy haul.  'Cuz really, when you reach this age, you get to eat pretty much whatever you want.  She does try to stretch them and shares with friends.  She had both chocolates and hard candies, you know, variety is the spice of life!


One of my favorite snapshots from the day, my niece and BIL taking some photos of their own.  She is totally into using a camera and at other events has been going around the room and snapping away.  Occasionally we have some floor and ceiling shots, but really, she's pretty good!

Oh, I so agree. When I hit 75 I'm gong to be a lot more liberal about what I put in my mouth. And so fun you have a budding photographer in the family!!

Thanks for sharing your about your grandmother's 95 birthday. That's amazing and so fun that she still likes candy. My mom still does and wins lots a bingo where she lives. Thanks for sharing!
