Fall Birthday Party

One tradition I love on the Berge side is that we make every excuse to get-together! We don't let birthdays slip by without having a party - usually celebrating every birthday in a particular month. This last party was in celebration of four birthdays: my Dad, Matt, Karen, and Elijah. It was a very COLD evening for an outside picnic, but that didn't put a damper on our fun. :)

Justin and Audra with their precious baby girl, Elinor!

Look at Grandma's beautiful cake! She's the best!

Same birthday - 9/26!

What a joy to all be together!

Ahhh! What fun! Thanks for the great pictures Mindy. I love the one of Elijah and Ben reading the card together. He is getting so big (Elijah, I mean!). :) Give him a big birthday kiss from me!
