Asian Ginger Broth

It's been a very busy week!
My parents came up to visit as we were planning a (belated) 50th anniversary party for my aunt and uncle.

We planned a nice brunch with a bunch of family.

A few days before, we planned to order subs from a fave place at another aunt and uncles...and invited the anniv couple, who, at this point, had no idea my parents were here.
My parents sat on the couch to the side while the guests of honor came in.
They walked right by them...assuming they were my other aunt (who was unable to join on that evening)
Once they realized what was going on, the tears were just flowing!
It was great!

My mother and her siblings are so close, and it's always great to see them together as it doesn't happen as often as they would all like.

It just makes me smile.
