In her 70's and still going strong!!!

My Aunt Dina had a birthday and we were so happy to celebrate her surprise birthday party with her. Last year was a very rough year for her. She went through two open heart surgeries within 90 days. She had gone through an amazing recovery and she looks great. Her surprise birthday party felt like a mini family reunion. I had my first, second, and third cousins there. My son was able to meet his 4th cousins. He had so much fun with them. This is a rarity for The Cisco Kid to meet his 4th cousins. That doesn’t happen often. The family only lives two to four hours from us and we hope to see them more often.

She was so surprised!!!!

She broke into tears.
My uncle Joe had the restaurant serve a private buffet of Salad, Chicken marsala, Chicken parmesan, Eggplant parmesan, lasagna and spaghetti. The food was delicious. 
The whole crew.
There are a total of 10 cousens all together. 
When we left the restaurant the weather really got bad.  The lightning started several fires. 
I can’t believe I captured lightning with my camera. Maybe it wasn't that hard because there was a lightning strike every minute or so. 
We got to my cousin Richards house safely and the kids had a great time playing. 
Uncle Joe and the Chief are both History buffs and they can talk for hours. 
We were all in the kitchen when we heard this beautiful voice coming from the living room. It was my cousin Patty. She has an amazing voice. I never knew we had so much talent in this family.  
Here my cousin Patty, my second cousin Christina and my Cousin in law Angelika. They Sang together in harmony. The boy is my third cousin Christian.
       Uncle Joe thank you so much for inviting us.  We always enjoy seeing you all.
