We went to my Grandpa Freitas' 90th birthday party on Saturday. (He's Papa Vern to all of the great-
grandkids so they won't get him confused with their other grandpas.) It was lots of fun. I saw cousins I hadn't seen in, like, 10-12 years. I didn't even recognize my cousin, Nick, who had grown two feet and a beard since the last time I saw him. Crazy! We had good food, played fun games, and chatted it up. I just hope it's not too long before we get together again. I want to be able to recognize everyone next time!Still lookin' good at 90!Leslie and Kylie.Amber, Adam, Sarah, and Becky.Becky, Nathan, and baby Marlayna.Trying to get Cooper to eat something!
