Ba's 90th birthday-09/30/2017

Arrival/Greetings Speech/Food Birthday cakes

Today we are celebration Hoa's mom 90th birthday and her life with family and friends.  Hoa is throwing a party to celebrate his mom's Birthday and her life but since we are too far to organize and plan for all the details, Hoa enlisted the help of his sisters.  Mai and Thierry offered to host the party at their house, and Cang, Chi Be planned for the food.  The only request Hoa had is to make sure a roasted suckling pig is on the menu because it is associated with important celebration according the Vietnamese tradition.


Kevin would not miss such an important event so he flew from New York just for the weekend.


Ha surprised us and showed up to the party!  I was a chock to see her when she walked in the door, we were speechless! She did not mention a word to us and nobody in the family knew she was coming  except for Chi Be!  It was a well kept secret.
