Audrey, Angela, and Cheryl helped with decorating the birthday cake
(the night before).
Audrey was a whiz at making fondant decorations.
Sam was engrossed in a game on his dad's iPhone.
Hillary selected yellow flowers--LaVerne's favorites--for the table decorations.

Aunt Alice with Uncle Greg. She is such a fun person!
The camera caught her in an unusually reflective moment.
Josh, Hillary, and Ethan.
It was so fun to see them - we haven't seen Ethan since he was 2 months old!
Audrey had to have some time with Tim's iPhone, too.
What a beautiful park - so typical of central California summers.
I remember lots of picnics like this when I was a kid.

Angela organized a wonderful book from the family for LaVerne.
The book had memories and photos from all of the family members.
LaVerne with some of her good friends.
They get together to play penuchle once a month.
Mark and I had some time to relax once the food was served.
Blowing out the candles!
No, we didn't put 80 candles on the cake - the first ones would have melted
by the time we got the last ones lit.
Back at the house - inside with air conditioning!
