Whirlwind Weekend

This weekend was wonderfully busy. My sister and her family from out of state were here visiting this weekend, so Steve, our kids & I, along with my other sister and her husband, kids and their kids had a great time getting together and visiting this weekend.

On Saturday the day consisted of a natural history museum trip where we saw some live reptiles too, and on to Chuck E Cheese Pizza for some hard core playtime! The kids had a blast, and the adults had a great time visiting and watching the little ones' eyes light up with delight.

Then on Sunday, we got together at my sister's house, had a bar-b-que supper and everyone played Dance Dance Revolution. Okay, so I sucked, but everyone had a great time!

We also took a family photo with all those present. Too bad our brothers couldn't be there, but it couldn't be helped.

It is funny to look at the pic and realize that this is really just 3 sisters and their families! My older sister (9 years older than me) has three kids and each of them are married(her "baby" boy is engaged) and one of her daughters has two kids of her own, my younger sister (13 years younger than me) has three kids (they are all still little), and I have six kids with one engaged. Wow! That is a lot of people!

It was great to just spend time visiting. Now it's back to work with school and housekeeping!

Have a great day!


  1. Nice photo. Even if everyone couldn't be there, it looks like many were. :)

    Glad it was a good weekend for you!

  2. What a great time and a great picture. That's a lot of people to get in one picture. You all are a prolific bunch. haha.
    Beautiful family.
    Glad you got to spend this time together.


  3. Ah what a great photo!!! I spent family time this weekend, too!!

  4. Great family photo. I'm always envious of large families. I love the Jaer Bear stories, too. That reminded me of my own son, TJ, the T is for Theodore, so he was my Teddy, then later, my Tadpole
