We have been in Syracuse for a week for a family visit with my sister Deirdre. We also made sure we were here to celebrate her husband David's 80th Birthday. There were 54 people over 3 days and we had beautiful 80 degree weather for the event. How wonderful for David's family to travel here from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Georgia, California and several from Costa Rica where they have lived for many years.
We have enjoyed visits to the Erie Canal, walks along the Creek Walk in downtown Syracuse, a visit with my neice Kathyrn in Utica and the family reunion held at Green Lakes State Park.
How lucky we have been to be with family and friends to share a special time together. These moments do not come often but we have made sure we enjoyed every one.
