Celebration Time!

My beautiful mother celebrated her 80th birthday on Saturday!
We traveled to Napa, California for the festivities.
What a gorgeous weekend in the valley!
It was so much fun to see old family friends and reunite with distant relatives.
My cousin from Texas flew in and had a wonderful time getting reacquainted with  my son (not in the cowboy hat...that is Coleman, my son's best friend from high school.)  It has been almost 15 years since she had last seen either of my children.
My lovely daughter and her special someone! 
The quilt behind them on the wall is the one I made as a tribute to my mother and father.  It is so nice that it hangs in a place of honor in my mother's home.
Mom, Dad and Me!
