Happy Birthday, Maia!

Maia is now 2!

I grew up in a large family in a small town in Hudson River Valley of upstate NY. My father was one of 11 children and I had more than 48 first cousins, a great deal of them in the same small town. My mother was one of four and though her family was not as prolific there were still about 8 more cousins. I have 4 sisters and 1 brother. I have a son and one of my sisters has a daughter. That's it! My son and his girlfriend have a daughter named Maia Danielle, who we all dearly love. My sister’s daughter does not have any children, yet. So somehow we went from a large family to a small family. In just a generation!
Maia just turned 2 years old. Kylie’s family had a very nice birthday party for her but Carlos was in California for two weeks and missed it. So tonight we celebrated at home. I can’t imagine not having Maia in our lives, she enriches it so much. I look forward to her spending summers in Merida, learning Spanish, keeping us young.
So Happy 2nd Birthday Maia, We love you!
CQ, Carlos Daniel and Kylie give Maia her cake!
