The SiblingsLast weekend we got to see all the aunts an uncles, plus some of the cousin’s from my Dad’s side of the family.  Okay – not all of Dad’s family was there, but a lot of them were.  My Dad grew up in a Catholic family, which came complete with 13 children.   He had 12 brothers and sisters which made for a lot of cousins to play and hang out with while I was growing up.

Family TimeThere were about 100 people at the reunion, and everyone in attendance could feel the love that comes from family.
We are so fortunate to be able to have gatherings like these.  They remind us of how much support we have in our lives and how many wonderful role models we have for ourselves, as well as our child(ren) that are on their way!

This weekend started off with a 3.5 mile walk together.  It was a GREAT walk along the trails, even if Paul’s head got a little TOO much sun.  We got some stuff done around the house and then got together with some church friends for a couple of hours last night.  After hanging out with friends for a bit, we enjoyed a couple of favorite TV shows together with Bailey and Claire.

We started out this morning at church.  We went to a 9:00 Mass just to shake things up a bit, as we often don’t leave the house that early on the weekends.  After church, we went to Costco to pick up a few thing then it was time for yard work.  We spent some time working on a landscaping project together in the front yard.  We are happy with the progress so far, but we’ll be all the more excited when it’s done!  We hope to get a little more done on it after work this week, and then we will be back at it next weekend.

We also have a graduation party next weekend for one of my best friends oldest son.  This particular good friend happens to have been adopted as an infant herself.  Perhaps that’s a part of the reason why she is truly one of our biggest supports on our adoption journey.  She has two boys.  The three year old is cuter than cute, and the older one seems like a fine young man.

June is off to a great start.  And I am LOVING the weather!!  I love the sun and don’t mind the heat.
