25 years, time flies when you are having fun

I can't believe 25 years has passed since my uncle got married and my mom married my step father; one is still going and the other is not. Recently I traveled up to the San Francisco Bay Area, I went up to visit mom and celebrate my Uncle's Wedding 25th Anniversary it was this year in 1995 when my Uncle tied the knot, I remember the day. There were so many relatives from my all four sides of his family, both of his parents and his wife's two sides of the family plus family and friends. I remember being taken around and was introduced to everyone, even though I will never remember all of their names.

But we had dinner with Relatives and his close friends, my how time flies. Still, I had a great time it was fun seeing some of his friends that I saw very regularly when I was a child. Many of them have families of their own now, some of them are in college like my cousin. Several of my cousins on my father's side of the family have kids of their own, but I have never met them...

When I was there, I had a chance to drive around San Jose, the city has changed so much, most of the area around my old home has changed so much, I remember having to drive 30-40 minutes to get to the highway when I was a boy, now the highway is right down the street. there are several shopping centers where there was hills and empty fields. What was even more strange was sleeping in the old house where I grew up, I slept in my old bedroom, and no things were not exactly the same as they were before I moved out.
