Family Time

I hate saying that my family and I have been "super busy" lately, because really, what family isn't constantly trying to balance life or running around like madmen?

This weekend so far has been more eventful than usual though, since Matt's extended family is in town from New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The weather has been perfect, and Natalie's been non-stop on the go.

She went to the zoo with Daddy while I was at work on Saturday, has gone on so many bike rides with Matt's dad and has had endless amounts of attention from new faces. We even partied on Saturday night to celebrate my nieces 4th birthday!

Yesterday Matt and I took advantage of all the relatives around and decided to get some home projects like staining the deck done, so we left Natalie at his parents where everyone is staying.

 Later the three of us went over to our friends/neighbors house so Nat could see her beloved buddy, Buddha aka "Boo-boo" the dog. We ended up staying awhile there and having a few beers while Natalie enjoyed playing with the other kids and making Daddy roll her around on the scooter. Then we had a cook out with the family, came home and fell asleep right away. We were wore out!

We've got some more errands to do today, and have to say good-bye to everyone heading back home. Tomorrow is our 2nd anniversary and our only plans are to go out to dinner.

Happy Memorial Day, people! Hope everyone has had a great weekend. Thank you to all who have or are serving our country.

Pretty birthday girl, Bridget. 

 My sisters children and mine: Drew, 10, Sienna, 7, Colin, 61/2, Bridget, 4, Natalie, 1 1/2.  The best shot I could get of all five of 'em. 

Colin and pizza faced Natalie. 

Driving home from the party on Saturday, we noticed the moon was so low and orange, so I had to stop at the Masonic Temple to get a shot of it. Here's my hometown in all it's glory!

Wow - I think your niece and Natalie look alike. You and your sister must have some strong genes! :)

You've definitely been super busy! We.. have not been. We are boring people. It sounds like you've been having a lot of fun though. Hope you have a great anniversary night!
