This weekend we’ve been hanging out with my west coast family. My grandma Catherine usually doesn’t venture out of her Senior living but made an exception this year.
Earlier this week, the state of Oregon legalized gay marriage, so my birth-mother Val and her girlfriend Kate took advantage of the family gathering and tied the knot after 33 years.
I really wanted a photo of each nuclear family, so pictured above is my uncle Chuck with his wife Karen and my cousins Kyle, Max & Caitlyn. I saw Kyle and Caitlyn last year, but hadn’t seen the others in about 20 years!
Max was probably 4 years old the last time we met, now he’s got a really awesome girlfriend named Bailey.
My aunt Kitty, with her husband Suman and my cousins Morgan and Haden.
My uncle Danny with my cousin Rose and her husband Frankie and my second cousins Gabe and Mason.
I’ve heard a lot about my cousin Phillip, but never met him. Here he is pictured with his wife Leigha and my second cousin Lennon.
With all these cousins around, I wanted to do a group photo (photo-bombed by the brides).
