A North Carolina woman celebrated her 100th birthday with six generations of her family.

The birthday celebration for Julia Lee Kelley occurred over the weekend, according to ABC6. The party is typically held like a reunion for the family, but this year the family held a drive-thru celebration due to the coronavirus pandemic, the outlet reported.

Kelley has five children, 30 grandchildren, 88 great grandchildren, 49 great great grandchildren, and 1 great great great grandchild. That’s a huge family. Not only is it amazing that she’s made it to 100 years old, but to be able to celebrate a milestone like that with a family this big is something to treasure.

People don’t have big families like this anymore. So it’s cool to see a family come together like this and celebrate.

It’s kind of sad that coronavirus made the plans change a little bit, but we, as a society, have found some pretty cool ways to get around the restrictions and figure out how to make things somewhat normal.

Drive-thru birthday parties aren’t the best thing, but they are the best way to make the best out of a bad situation.
