happy birthday gram!

My grandmother Audrey turned 95 this year and our extended family traveled to San Jose this weekend to celebrate with her. We had a great time with this very special lady.
Fifteen of us (including six kids) traveled down together. Traveling with a large group certainly has its challenges, but overall it was very fun.
This was Ethan's very first plane ride. He did great and said it was "awesome" about one hundred times!
We took a trip to Santa Cruz one day.
Tentative at first - that didn't last long!
Watching the kids play.My brother and his beautiful ladies.
Playing in the sand. Too bad Mom forgot a change of clothes for them! But they had a ball and dried off quickly once the sun came out.
Courtney took the three little boys on a train ride. They loved it!
The roller coaster crew.

Trying to get a shot of all the kids!
Four generations. Audrey, Ray, Rachel and Audrey.
Dinner out. Loud and fun!
Letting off some steam after being so good in the restaurant.
Such a fun time with the family (but we missed you Kevin and Kelly!). And reminded once again just how blessed we are.
