Aunt Trees’ Birthday

This weekend we celebrated my aunt Trees’ birthday.

A multitude of Janssens and extended clan members descended on the city of Lelystad to enjoy rare sunny weather and the company of far-flung relatives.

It was wonderful to see everyone in such good spirits, and it never fails to amaze me, during these gatherings, how much the kids have grown. Some cousins I remembered only as toddlers or budding adolescents have turned into fine young men and women with surprising, interesting lives.

Happy Birthday, Trees!

Here’s to many more.
