Mom's 80th Birthday
Our trip north last week was for a family reunion to celebrate my mom’s 80th birthday. About two dozen family members were there, including the two newest additions, my great nephews (and while they are of course great, I mean I’m their great aunt), one 7 months old, and the other just 6 weeks, plus a couple of long lost cousins (not technically lost, but I haven’t seen them in many years). We stayed with Mom in Saratoga Springs and partied at my brother's in S. Glens Falls, NY. A fine time was had by all. Here are a few photos of the trip.
Here's a bit of Mom's garden, with the new solar powered bird bath/fountain we bought her as a gift:

I normally don't post recognizable photos of family members, but I couldn't resist this photo of Mom with the youngest great grandbaby. Hopefully neither one will mind.
Next stop: New Hampshire.
