I LOVE my family! I’m so thankful to have amazing parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins! We met at the beginning of this month to celebrate my Grandma Ya Ya’s birthday. She is now 90 years-old! She doesn’t look a day over 60 in my opinion! I’m such a fan of the flower crown my cousin Erin made for my Grammy to wear. As gorgeous as she is, she even more caring and thoughtful. I just can’t say enough nice things about her. We started the celebration off at Mexican restaurant and then went to play at the beach. We have a family full of photographers and I especially loved watching my Uncle Doug use his “GoPro” camera. It was great to finally meet some of my cousins’s kiddos that I hadn’t met yet. Little Sophia (baby in pink crawling on the sand) was so fun to watch. What a happy baby! For my Grandma’s birthday present I asked everyone in my family to write up their favorite memory of her or what they love most about her. I then put everyone’s responses into a book along with the photos I took of her back in December. It was a wonderful way to let her know how much she has influenced us all for the better. Another favorite part of this trip for me was making up a synchronized swim routine with the kids to preform for the moms for Mother’s Day. Turns out I’m super talented at dancing in a swimming pool, just kidding, totally not talented at that. As the night came to a close we all went back down to the beach to send off paper lanterns into the sky. It was pretty magical to say the least. Love you Grammy!
