Weekend with My Family
The last year has been very trying for my family. We have had a number of losses including my grandson and my father. So it was very special to get to spend my son's 30th birthday with him and his family.
He works for a blueberry company and this time of year is very busy for them so it is very difficult for him to get time off or to plan any events. So this weekend was all spur of the moment plans.
First off he got to attend his son's testing for his yellow belt in tae kwon do on Saturday then his father and I took him and his family out for breakfast on Sunday!
My son's wife had planned a BBQ for him on Saturday but by the time he got home from son's testing he was beat as he worked all night on Friday so the BBQ was put off until Sunday too.
It seemed like all we did all weekend was eat but it was good and we had a great time. The kids had a great time too...the wind was playing havoc with candles and food but we managed!
It is hard to believe that 30 years ago my son was born...it was the scariest days of my life but also the happiest...there have been some bumps along the way but I love his so much and am so proud of him! This is him holding his cake...lol...not all 30 candles would fit on it...and his son and his dad heading out the door. Cake had to be lite inside as the wind was too strong.
I cherish the time I get to spend with my family these days as you never know when something will happen....there are no guarantees in this life.
