Last week we were invited to my grandfather’s 85th birthday party in Connecticut. My brothers and sister were there which makes it the first time since February 2008 that we were all in the same place. Crazy. Also, It seemed as though all of my mother’s family were there too. Including 14 of her 15 cousins and lots of their kids and grand kids. All but one of my cousins were there as well. He is in Nairobi by the way. What follows is a whole bunch of Pictures of the festivities:
