The main reason for this trip to Pennsylvania was to celebrate Mom's 90th birthday. Today, we got the Northern branch of the Watson family together at my brother Barry's home. It has been a long time since all my siblings and I have been in the same place at the same time. Couldn't think of a better reason to get together!!!

Tomorrow is their First Anniversary
Months before we got together, everyone sent me photos from the past. I stole photos from my mother's collection and we managed to get them all digitized. The group bought her a digital photo frame and now all her memories are there for her to enjoy all the time!!
Happy Birthday, MOM!!!
