Fun, Fun Weekend

Last weekend, I had the joy of spending time with my aunt, uncle and cousins.  They live out west and we don’t have the opportunity to see each other very often.  They came in town so that we could celebrate our grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary.   We had a fabulous weekend together!  We did so much, that I am not going to be able to sum it up in one post.  This will require several.

First of all, I have decided that our family loves to eat.  In the 48 hours that our family was in town, we ate out a total of 4 times.  Good times are spent around good food, though.  I am just going to avoid the scale for the next couple of weeks. ;)

On the last night that they were all in town, my dear sweet husband took our children home and told me to spend the night at my mom’s so that I could hang out with my cousins.  We stayed up until 2am talking and playing Scatergories.  Thank you honey for the night off so that I could have some fun!

Stay tuned, more fun posts to come!
