Celebrations...

Cooper, one excited birthday boy!
This Memorial day weekend was one of family celebrations...Cooper's 4th birthday and my in-laws 70th anniversary!  It's always a pleasure to see family and so wonderful to get them (or most) all in the same place at the same time.  My favorite thing to do is just sit and watch them.  Cooper's birthday was an outdoor party that he had been excited about for a long time.  He loves superheros, so his parents made this a "superhero academy".  Mom, Joni thought of everything down to baby wipes on all the tables...great!

Happy Birthday to Cooper! Looks like it was fun and very clever of Joni to think of a super hero event! Boy, you can tell cousin Jack and Cooper are related, they could be brothers. Happy Anniversary to Uncle Joe and Aunt Irene..quite the milestone!
