We took so many photos that I thought it would be fun to put them in a slide show along with music to listen to if you would like, while you look at the pictures.
We had the party at my parent’s house “up on the hill” where mom and her sisters grew up. We all have deep roots in this land, farm land, quiet country, woods, blueberries, birds, so many memories….all of it.
We had chicken BBQ (thank you Dave and Maria for all your work to make this happen!)
Kids played together as a pack; croquet, football, chalk on the driveway, running wild.
Mom was overcome with emotions a few times, just so happy to have all the people she loves the most with her.
One of my favorite memories was when sister Amanda and I were off by ourselves lost in conversation and Mom appeared wanting us back with her. “You’ll have to leave soon and I want you with me!”
Cousin Erika made the birthday cake, I sure wish I had a piece with me right now while I write this post.
All she wanted for her birthday was her family. And that’s what happened! What a great day for a great lady.
Happy Birthday to our beautiful Cindy, Mom, Sister, Grandma, & Aunt. You wear many hats and we’re thankful for who you are in our lives.
