Off to see the fam...

We are headed up north this weekend for my grandpa's 80th birthday party! We are sooo excited! I know, an 80th birthday party doesn't seem all that exciting right, but....ALL of our family is coming together for this big event and honestly, I can't remember the last time we were ALL together. Even my aunt and uncle from CA are flying in!!! They have never met the P so we are very excited to introduce them. My grandpa has been battling cancer for the last several months and is doing remarkably well, considering the doctors didn't think the chemo would do any good. Fortunately, the chemo is working and the tumors are shrinking! We couldn't be more pleased with his results thus far. We have a fun filled weekend ahead of us and are looking forward to spending time with everyone!

ps being that the G & G still live in the "what's the internet?" era...I most likely won't be posting till our return on Sunday. Gotta love the older generation! :) I promise to update as soon as I'm back.
