The big birthday bash weekend
We just got back from a fun filled weekend long celebration for Cameron’s Grandma’s 90th birthday. It was a unique opportunity for Cameron’s entire family to be together- all thirty of us. There was food, conversation and plenty of adorable photography subjects. I especially enjoyed the sincere love and concern everyone has for each other. It makes my heart full to see their complete and utter acceptance of me into their family. On Saturday Cameron’s immediate family headed into San Francisco to hit all the tourist hot spots. Saturday night was the big birthday bash at El Patio where everyone had the opportunity to express how they have been impacted by Grandma Maurine throughout the years. There were a few tears, lots of smiles and fond memories shared. On Sunday we had the rare opportunity to attend church all together as a family. This weekend reaffirmed my belief that families are forever and showed me unconditional love in action. Our only regret is that we do not get together often enough. Come visit Seattle- it will not rain we promise.
