Great-Grandma Turns 93

BRYN MAWR, July 13 - Four generations gathered on this beautiful summer day for a surprise party for Luke and Alex's great-grandma (called "Big Yiayia" by most of the boys' cousins) to celebrate her 93rd birthday on July 10.

Among those present at the celebration were Big Yiayia's two daughters, seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Cousins Nickie and Lenny hosted the party by the pool and Yiayia and "Thea-Yiyia" Anna put together the birthday feast.
