Tia Helenice's birthday reunion

On the eve of our birthday getaway Luiz, Zozó and I joined many others from our extended family to celebrate tia Helenice’s 70th birthday. Gotta love these 9 hour parties.

Endless food and drink. Kids everywhere. Luiz saw cousins he had not seen in 30 years and met others who weren’t even born before he moved to the United States.

I even ran into some folks who spoke English (who were older than 8 years).

Just before we sang Happy Birthday and cut the cake the grandkids made a sweet presentation for their vovó, reading a poem and telling her they loved her.

Nice party!
