Family Fun

Our weekend in Canada was pretty much a non-stop family reunion. We arrived Friday evening just in time for dinner. After eating, we had our Jack-and-Jill shower (see previous post). By time everyone left, it was bed time!

Saturday morning, I got up early to make breakfast...cinnamon rolls! After eating we had a little bit of time to get ready before the whole family came over for morning coffee and cake. We were celebrating my Grandparent's 55th Anniversary. They like to celebrate all day long! Around 11 everyone was there and we started serving cake. We visited again until about 1:30 and then we headed to Aunt Anita's house to relax by the pool.

It was an absolutely perfect day to spend in the sun and in the pool. It was so much fun to have everyone together!

After spending the afternoon at the pool, we headed back to Grandma's house for a family picture and dinner. Grandpa was feeling well enough to join us for the picture and dinner, so that was a huge blessing! I don't have a picture of the whole family on my camera, but when I get it, I'll be sure to share! We had Chinese food catered from a popular local restaurant, and we enjoyed dining outside.

I hadn't seen my cousin Jason in nearly 5 years (since my Grandparent's 50th), and he was able to make it with his family. It was so good to see him and meet his two beautiful children! Above is his 2-1/2 year old, Chase. He is such a sweet boy. I just can't get over how much he looks like his daddy did when he was younger! And below is his gorgeous baby girl, Alaura. She turned 1 on Sunday so we had a birthday cake for her Saturday afternoon. Alaura took to Mike and I very well and she was so fun to play with and cuddle.

She was absolutely enamored with Mike. Every time she would look at him, her eyes would light up and she would get an enormous smile. We just had to get a picture of her looking at him.

Mike couldn't help but fall in love with her as well...who wouldn't love such a sweet baby?
We had a wonderful weekend with everyone, it went by way too quickly, but a lot of fun was had and lots of memories were made!
