Instead, Sara invited me to her family's house in Binghamton for this afternoon's family gathering. It was a real treat to meet the parents and grandparents she's mentioned dozens of times, and assorted aunts and uncles and cousins, to boot. :-)
Yup, I took a bunch of photos of the party!
Dom e-mailed me a really cute card with pictures of her and Kaeden, so I could print it out and bring it to Sara, along with a pair of hugs.
