Posted at 9:09 PM, May 03, 2020

One family marked two milestone birthdays today in St. Martinville - using proper social distancing practices.

Ms. Pearly Bernard celebrated her 95th birthday, and her great-grandson, Je’Caryous Esther, celebrated his 5th.

The family celebrated with a drive-by parade, which included a fire truck. Ms. Bernard has five children, 21 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren, her daughter Mary Williams tells us. She said her mother still does all of her own cooking and cleaning, and loves to work in her garden.

Here are some pictures from the celebration:
