Birthday celebrations

Every July my mom flies up from Florida so we can celebrate her birthday with the family. A few days before her special day, we had family and friends over for a cookout on the weekend.

I had not seen my cousins in a couple of years, but my mom hadn't seen a couple of them in over twenty years.

My moms birthday was actually on July 22nd. Our family took her out for dinner at Longhorn. This restaurant is one of our favorite places when dining out.

Sounds like a lovely birthday celebration for you Mom. There is a Longhorn here but I've never been. Since you recommend it - I'll give it a try.

My most precious childhood memories are of summer family reunions. Looks like this was great fun!

How nice to see cousins you haven't seen in awhile! We did that recently too. It's neat how quickly the kids bond with each other.
