Getting Together!!

I can't believe that I never posted this post!! I must have gone to the library and uploaded the photos BEFORE I got HIGH-SPEED internet! Imagine that! :-)

Anyhoooo.....these are pictures of a little lunchdate I had with my sisters, niece Bethany, her two beautiful children and my pride and joy (that would be my son!) Daniel!!!

You would not believe what I went through to spend a few minutes with this group and so they could spend some time with each other!

First, I picked up my sister Bev. She's wearing the black and gray sweater.

Then we got my sister Debbie. She's the one with the oxygen!

We drove to Lancaster where I dropped Debbie of at her doctor's appointment.

Then I took Bev to the nearby Wendy's where she met up with her daughter Bethany and her two little ones.

In the meantime, I drove out and picked up Daniel from his work so he could join us on his lunch hour.

I no sooner got back to Wendy's than Debbie called and said she was done at the doctor's office.

So I hopped back in my car, picked her up and we went back to Wendy's where we joined everyone for a time of food and reconnecting, as much as you can in a limited amount of time!

But I just think it is so important for us to grab these moments when we can!

Daniel and Bethany grew up together and seldom get to see eachother now that they are married and have families and live so far apart.

Oh, but we did laugh and share some wonderful memories of those growing-up years!!! :-) And I love to see my sister Bev with her grandbabies! How she loves them!!

AND, of course, my favorite picture is the last one!! Me and the handsome young man I am so proud to call "Son"!   Oh, and if anyone knows how to photoshop my sister Debbie's finger out of this picture, please help me!! :-)

Whew, you sure did a lot of work getting this family event to happen, and it was a great success, I can tell.

A lot of running for you, but some great memories for everyone! I was so surprised to see how much Bethany's children have grown. Time is a-flyin'!
