Hubby, Son, Daughter, Daughter’s Roommate and I celebrated at one of our favorite restaurants, Lai-Lai

The sushi is fabulous

The sushi is fabulous (and chef is looking for young, rich girlfriend)

We’ve been going there for years, ever since our children were small and over the years it has become a favorite place for family celebrations and gatherings.

We've watched each others' children grow up

Birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day, graduations, Son’s going away and welcome home from the U.S. Marine Corps. We hadn’t been there in a while. All of our children are in college or graduated by now. It’s kind of like a family reunion every time we go.

Joy is being with people who have known you for years and love you anyway.
