The first weekend in April we made the LOOOONG trek over the river and through the woods to Lubbock, TX to help celebrate Maw Maw’s 80th Birthday. Maw Maw is Robin’s Dad’s Mother. She has been pretty sick the last few months in and out of the hospital so we knew we needed to go spend some time with her! Robin’s other set of Grandparents used to live in Lubbock and just recently re-located to Temple, TX to a retirement community there. We were very sad not to get to see them in Lubbock too! It was a strange feeling to be in Lubbock without them there. We plan to try to come see them in Temple sometime this year!
The Birthday party was at Maw Maw’s retirement community. Several of her friends and family from out of town came to celebrate! Robin got to see several of his cousins and their kids as well. It was a great little family reunion.
We brought Maw Maw two little balloons and some flowers.
We had a yummy catered BBQ lunch. Emma and Foster helped Aunt DeeAnn pass out the drinks.
There’s the Birthday girl.
