It was a day that was all about family, and celebrating the origin of our family. Since I love writing, I wrote a poem for my grandpa and printed it out on a picture of the two of us. While writing the poem, I kept thinking about all the love and lives that we have in our family because of my grandpa. Because of him, there are three more generations of Santos. Looking around at my family, from the grandparents down to the great-grandchildren, I felt a sense of importance in how meaningful this day was. Through one person (technically two, if you count my grandma) all this life has come to be. It truly was an amazing day to be surround by such love, and family, and generations of the Santos legacy. Happy 80th Birthday Grandpa. Your life has truly blessed us all.
|In the spirit of celebrating the generations, we decided to recreate this photo of Grandpa with his grandchildren. This picture is approximately 15 years old.|
|Here we are now, in 2013.|
|And, of course, we had to add the fifth grandchild born about a year later.|
