We started celebrating early and continued all day.
We had breakfast at Babette’s in Newport Beach just across the street from the Pacific ocean.
After breakfast Vera and I did some shopping while Debbee and Melissa and my sister Kathy made some preparations for the evening dinner party.
The quote of the day was, “you only turn 18 twice!”
The top photo in the collage is my sister Vera with her two kids, David and Debbee. David opened up the evening with a beautiful prayer for our gathering and his mom.
Top photo are the siblings who could make it to the party in birth order. Kathy, Vera, Ellen, Steve and Lana.
Mom’s and their daughters, Aunts with their nieces.
Love our little grand niece, Avery, photo bombing this photo of our nieces and sister, Lana.
I leave you with our pop’s hallmark ending to all our phone conversations and farewells when visiting.
Above all, Love each other dearly!
