A Fun Weekend with Family

Yesterday, CPA's (a.k.a. my dear husband, Nathan) brother Kendall, his wife Traci and their kids Ethan and Reagan arrived for little visit on their way back home to Minnesota. We had a GREAT time with them. And I wish they could have stayed longer. Our kids get along so well which makes for very pleasant adult time!

Last night, we decided to throw a little party for Kendall and Traci and invited a slew of college friends over for a BBQ. A lot of the friends hadn't seen my BIL and SIL in a couple of years. It was a gorgeous evening and we had the perfect mix of good food, good friends and good conversation. I believe at one point in the evening, we had 12 kiddos jumping on the trampoline. Serious fun, for sure!

This morning, we went to the Red Geranium for breakfast and then my SIL and I pawned the kiddos off on the husbands and headed over to Talbot Kids to do some serious damage. Well, I guess I did the serious damage and Traci did very minor damage. CPA is beyond thrilled that Talbot Kids is shutting their doors for good come the beginning of September. I, on the other hand, am trying to figure out if I need to seek help for the sadness I feel at the loss of this store!

We were sad to see them leave after lunch today. We can't wait to see them again and wish they lived closer. Thanks for a fun visit, guys! We love you!


PS - The photo above, from left to right, is my niece Reagan and my dear daughter Gretchen. How cute are they!

I would have to agree that they are pretty darn cute!!! (Although I may be biased too.) Thanks again for the great visit-- we had a wonderful time.
