Celebrating My Parents Anniversary with our family

Tonight is a special night because we are going to celebrate my parents 34th anniversary in the restaurant. Like always, my parents invited their siblings that live in Surabaya to come. Most of my relatives showed up because they want to congratulate my parents and to see us since we are rarely able to see each other.

I took lots of shots of my relatives tonight and some of them are candid shots. I love to show you what a loving family looks like. I took pictures of them interacting between cousins. I also took pictures of them in pair like father and son or mother and daughter. Well, enough said, you'll see what I am trying to say. Pictures worth a thousand words and I am saving my words now....
