Mothers Day Weekend

This weekend we went to Longview Washington for a huge family birthday party for Nathan’s grandmother Ruth Potter.  She is Nathan’s dad’s mother who remarried after her first husband (Grandpa Spinelli) died due to complication in surgery at a young age.  It was her big 80th birthday and 9 out of her ten kids were there along with tons of grandchildren and great grandchildren.  It was held at the Red Lion Hotel and ended up being a really special experience for everyone there.  There was a slide show that made everyone teary eyed and many people got up and talked about what a great person and mother she is.  I haven’t even known her very long and I was all choked up!!  So it was a great party with LOTS of great food.  I totally ate way too much. I haven’t done that in a really long time.

Nathan is a really good grandson.  He calls her every one or two weeks just to talk.  She use to be a pharmacist back in the day so they end up talking about medicine.  She graduated from University of Washington so Nathan always has to wear a Washington State Pharmacy shirt when she is around just to rial  up the rivalry in good fun.  I hope when I am old and if Nathan goes before me that I get a grandson like him that will call me like he does.
