I started blogging so that my family could see my children and keep up with as they grow. I love to sew and used to blog about that here on occasion. Now, I blog about my creations at miymdiary.blogspot.com with a friend. Stay here for to read about my family and visit the other blog for more on sewing!

Family- that's what it's all about!

Over President's Day weekend we had a big gathering.   We had Dad, Uncle Paul and Aunt Katy, Grandma, Rebecca and her family, Joseph, and cousins Paul, Julia, Nicole and Clayton come for a visit.  We also had a couple friends from Oregon in town.  We had a great time with all of our family and friends.  There was more food than we could eat and lots of fun times!  Here are many, many pictures (all taken by Aunt Katy) to show how much fun we had.

Cousins chillin on the couch.

Hanging out around the kitchen (not mine).

Drew was blessed while everyone was in town.

The kids loved their mom's cousins.  (Doesn't it show?)

Drew and his daddy.

Everyone got in on the reading fun.

My cousins.

My sweet boy.

This is the cutest!

Could they look more angelic?

Maybe they know how cute the are.

My cousin from the area even came with her family to hang out for a bit.  Natalie really enjoyed playing with their kids.

I'm cute.  You must love me.

Cousins (the ones of my generation).

Grandma and Julia.

We went to the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay.  The kids loved it!

None of the girls wanted to touch the Manta Rays, so we only got pictures of strangers.

The jellyfish were beautiful.

The lion fish just wouldn't hold still for a good picture.

Sharks.

More sharks.

We then headed to the Bellagio to see the gardens and the fountain show.


I really wanted to go on this bridge, but it is just for looks. 


I loved this boat.

Drew took a nap.  Gardens are just too boring for an active little boy like him.




The mirrored horse.

Paul, Ashley, and Grandma.

The fountains at the Bellagio.

The girls were enjoying all the extra attention (even when the attention wasn't on them).

If there is a camera, Natalie will be there- ready and posing.

And Alona right behind her.

We had a great time with all of loved ones!  We hope more of them will come to visit us soon.
