Happy Birthday Family

In my family there are 12 birthdays in May and June. Since my parents live five hours away rather than come up 12 separate times they come up for one big celebration. We just had a big birthday bash. Happy Birthday Grandma, Alex, Ethan, Abby, Pat, Anna, Lori, Josh,
Jenni, Tyler, Amy, and me.
Look at this beautiful chest my dad made me for my birthday. Isn't he amazing. Now I need to get busy and fill it. Sorry for the grainy pictures. It is early and overcast. Not a lot of light happening here.
