When Dave's mom Marj approached her eighty-fifth birthday in 1997, she wanted the whole family to celebrate with her. But you don't tell your children to see that their adult children are there; that doesn't work. So she said to everybody, "My birthday party will be on a Caribbean cruise. Who's coming?" Everybody made it.

We all had such a good time that we did it every year through Mom's 90th birthday. A few times each in the Caribbean and the Mexican "riviera", and even once to Alaska. Here are some pictures from the cruises.
