It’s been a long time since I’ve been on the blog! I hate that. But I always seem to lose track of the blog during the summer months. What can I say – we get so busy playing, traveling, swimming, and generally spending time outside, that I just can’t find the time to sit in front of a computer. Even in the evening – would you rather sit at the computer or enjoy a cold beer poolside with the neighbors? Yeah, I’m gonna drink that beer!
So what did the summer look like for us? Well, we’ve been in full on wedding mode around our house for the last few months. My baby (ok – I acknowledge that she is 23 years old) sister got married to a great man who I’m happy to call my brother. I had the privilege of being the Matron of Honor so with that came the work of bridal shower, bachelorette party, errand running and activity planning. Despite the priest missing the rehearsal and dinner – everything worked out and in the end she had a great day and a wonderful wedding. A big thanks to my in-laws who helped man-handle our boys while I was busy tending to wedding day obligations!
That was wedding #1 this year! A few weeks ago we dressed up the whole family for Matt’s little sister’s wedding. We packed the whole family up and spent a week in San Antonio. It was a great day for the everyone. Both boys managed to walk down the aisle without tears, Matt and I loved being part of the wedding party, and despite a missing mariachi band, the reception was a blast! This time the thanks go to my family for taking time off to travel to TX for the purpose of babysitting children! We are so blessed to have great family supporting us!!!!
Well, that completes the wedding post for this summer. I’m going to try to back-date a few posts with important events like birthday parties, family vacations, John’s first soccer season, medical updates and more. Hang in there – I’ll get everyone caught back up as quickly as I can!
