The big 9-0!

This past weekend was quite the party weekend for the Young family. After Jessica's graduation they were able to head up to Sunnyvale, CA to celebrate Gon-Gon's (Chinese for grandpa on the mother's side. I should know since I'm pretty much half chinese) 90th birthday. This was definately an occasion worth celebrating, especially since last November he suffered a severe heart attack. The doctors said to gather the family around for their final goodbyes then he had a miraculous recovery and is doing so great now. His healthy diet and daily work outs at the YMCA have definately paid off! For a man turning 90, he sure partied hard this weekend. The celebration started when the family all got together for lunch, then went to a hotel by the beach where they stayed the night playing games and hanging out at the beach. The next day they had lunch and a party at the park with all his friends. Gon Gon is such a sweet man and we wish we could have all been there to celebrate his big day. Happy birthday, we love you! (thanks, Andrea for the pictures!)

90 - wow! What a blessing to have him doing so well. I'm so impressed that he works out at the YMCA everyday. How cute is that?! I love the jerseys. What a cute idea. Jason sure packed a lot into one weekend. How fun!

We had a pretty eventful August, but this trip was the highlight! I'm glad Jason came with us. We sure missed the rest of your family.

So now you know what Jason will look like in about 60 years right? ;)
