Today we met in Bedford to celebrate Fiona’s first birthday. It was really a wonderful family get together. We all met at “Aunt Ruth’s” house. which was sort of a central location. Zach, Rachel, Toben and the birthday girl drove in from Ohio. Anja and Lief came from Boston via Pittsburgh (where Anja had spent most of the week at the University), with Samantha (who was in Pgh to babysit), and Tina and Lars came from Carlisle. Grammy, Rose and Jessica, Cayden and Cohen (all residing in Bedford county) came as well to help celebrate Fiona’s special day.
