The family gathered over memorial day weekend in Lake Havasu, Arizona to celebrate my grandpa's 80th birthday and my cousin Melissa's graduation from high school. I haven't been to Lake Havasu in years so it was good to be back and remember all of the fun times I had there as a child.
We rented a house for the weekend and it was the perfect location for relaxing, cooking, and having a party! There was a jacuzzi, pool, outdoor kitchen area and a shaded patio for those hot afternoons. The gourmet kitchen suited us well for making food all weekend long instead of having to go out to eat. There was a pool table, bar, and everything else you need to have a good time.
I really enjoy being with my family and lucky to get to share such fun times together making new memories. This is what life is meant for - to celebrate each other's milestones, accomplishments, and dreams coming true. Love you all!
