Family Party

We went to a wonderful family gathering in honor of my mom's cousin's 88th birthday...all my life I've call her tante Nellie, and she is well loved as you can see...
We enjoyed the fine weather in tante Nellie's back yard...
Some partiers passed out from too much commotion and fun...
Cousin Greet came from Holland and enjoyed the festivities...
And great grandchildren of tante Nellie's were all over and playing...
Oh, this trifle was so delicious and the other food was scrumptious too!
Lots of presents to unwrap and admire...
My parents enjoyed themselves too...
Here's a little sweet heart baby that I got to meet for the first time...
And here is tante Nellie holding great granddaughter Clare who peacefully went to sleep...what sweet memories of the day!
