Grampa's 95th!

We spent last weekend celebrating my Dad's 95th, yup 95th, birthday in Austin, TX.   Sista and family flew in from chilly Connecticut to join in the festivities.  We all gathered at the hotel for cocktails before meeting the birthday boy for dinner.

#1 and adorable Jonathon

Sista and #2 catching up.
It has been 2 years since my girls have seen Sista.

#2 asking #1 Nef about his college search.

Adorable Jonathon and Nef #2 getting acquainted.

If you have been paying attention to my commentary, you know who these two beautiful ladies are.  If not, refer to picture #2.

The Mister and Sista's Mista chattin' it up about how lucky they are to be married to Sista and moi.  The Mister still thinks he was the true winner.  He just doesn't want to make Sista's Mista jealous.

The Birthday Boy.

#2 Nef has obviously heard #1's story before.

Can you tell that besides the mirror, #1's second favorite thing in the world is the camera lens.

Bros! Wish my girls got along as well as these guys do!

So glad to have my #2 home for Spring Break!
Note to self:  go light on the "miracle" wrinkle moisturizer and remember to powder face before someone takes your photo.

Nobody loves his birthday more than my Dad.  

Hope your day is filled with happy reunions!
