Happy Birthday Nan!

Round two of my trip home to Fresno was an amazing birthday party we threw for my mom's mom, my Nan.  My mom has two sisters and three brothers, and they all made the trip to Fresno from all corners of California to celebrate!  Over a delicious dinner, a tres leches birthday cake and yummy wine, we shared all of our favorite memories of Nan, and everyone shared how she's inspired us.  This lady makes me think I can do just about anything... she raised six kids while working full-time, supporting her hubby, volunteering, and more. 


My cousin Jake and I.
Cousins + Nan.
Love that I can wear slippers instead of shoes with my fam.
Those little birdies spin around a hum the tune to happy birthday.  Love you Nan!
Babygirl was having a really fun time.
Everyone was so sad to go home after our fun parties, so the rain was totally appropriate.  The weekend was "officially" over when I dropped my other sissy off at the BART after we drove back to the bay.


Aren't family celebrations the best?
