Weekend Family Time

We headed to NW Iowa Saturday morning for Bud's aunt's 96th birthday.  Alma, is Bud's "double" aunt. She is his mom's sister who married his dad's brother.  Anyway, she still lives alone in her home although she has failed some in the past year.   She enjoys having the family together.
Most of the grandkids, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and great-great-nieces and nephews were there.  
These are the "kids".  
We all had a great time enjoying the food, visiting, and getting reacquainted with some we don't see often.

Gratitude:  I am thankful for spring.  I love the change of seasons that Iowa offers us.  Spring is just what we need after a long winter.  It seems that just when we can't take one more cold, gloomy day we notice the days getting longer and the daffodils and tulips start peeking out.  When we get some snow like we did on Saturday night we know it won't last long.  The sunshine lifts our mood and all seems right with the world again.  Thank you God, for spring in Iowa!

I would like to thank all the nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews for making the trip and taking the time out of your busy schedules to come to Alma's birthday party. Not only did she enjoy seeing everybody, we all had a great time seeing all the little ones getting to know each other. It made all of our work worth while. Hope we can make it a yearly event.
