Happy 102nd birthday, "Uncle" Harry Katsuyama!

My father's uncle, Harry Katsuyama, celebrated his 102nd birthday!
It was a wonderful gathering of his immediate and extended family members.
My second cousin, Jana (and Paul) invited everyone to their home for the celebration.
I had a fabulous time catching up with my second cousins, Jana and Sean, and their parents, Jane and Ron.

Kevin and I are not yet in this picture but here are the rest of the family:


I took the picture with my Sony Cyber-shot.
The rest of the pictures are still on my Christmas present from Kevin.


It turns out that the memory stick is not compatible with my computer, so we have to get a external card reader first. Believe me, I was totally floored by this most awesome gift! :)

It's 3:40 in the morning and I'm finally starting to come down from all of the excitement from the family reunion. I'll get to the craft table after catching some zzz's and will post another card or two so come back again later tonight!

So excited for you! You'll love it and we'll be so lucky to see the results! Glad you had a great reunion!

OMG! No wonder you're on such a "high"! How exciting to get such a great gift! I am just in awe at your "uncle" too. Imagine seeing what he has seen in his lifetime! Even the art of communication has gone through SO many phases, shapes, sizes. Gone from walking to flying to the moon and even that doesn't garner much attention anymore! Wow! Simply amazing!
