Mom's 65th birthday!

Last night, we had a party for Mom's 65th birthday!

It was held, of course, at Kopici's retaurant in Bloomingdale, NJ - Mom and Dad's favorite hangout. It was planned as a surprise party, and she sure was surprised! I wish I had my camera ready as she entered the room to catch the look on her face. She was truly touched and very choked up. It was so great to see her so pleasantly surprised. Here's some pictures from the party.

Here's a picture of the whole gang (well, almost all of us - some of us had to snap the pictures)

The grandchildren had a great time together, as they always do. We had a entire back room to ourselves, and there were only tables set up in half of it, so there was plenty of room for the kids to let out their energy.

My cousin, Nancy, gets the credit for all of the planning and for pulling off such a great event. Thanks for everything, Nancy! Here's a picture of her and her husband, Ken.

While socializing, I received lots of nice words of praise and encouragement from people about our efforts for the Walk for PKD. Thanks, everybody, for all of your support. It really helps keep me motivated!

The only bad part of the party is it went by way too quick!

Happy Birthday, Mom! We love you!!!
