and a birthday party for my son David. How can he possibly be 40???? Everyone came - from Bayonne, Machias, Detroit, Pittsfield...it was fabulous. On Saturday evening, we all had dinner at a local restaurant and David was very surprised! We then went back to Lori and David's house for cake, cookies, pie and lots of games - Trivial Pursuit Pop Culture, the DVD version, was so much fun! On Sunday we had brunch at my sister-in-laws and the kids got to visit with their grandfather and cousins. I then had a super visit with my sisters and brothers. Sunday night, my neice Jessica stopped by David's and we had another great visit. How special to have all the kids together for a change - it is so much fun to watch them all together, and of course, Kiley was a big hit and passed from one person to another to hug all weekend long.
The long drive down and back by myself was definitely worth it.
