Memorial Day Weekend

Well, according to the last post we were going to have a relaxing weekend at home, but that was just a little white lie. Kevin's folks were having some of his family coming from Calgary and we don't get to see them often. We decided to surprise them all by showing up Saturday morning at 7 am. The kids were thrilled to get there and sneak upstairs to wake up Grammy and Grampa. Brenna, Derek and Maureen came up from DC and all the family descended upon Elmlawn. It was a wonderful weekend of visiting with family. I had a relaxing time and you won't believe it but I did not take even one picture! I had to steal all these just to have some.

How old do your kids have to be before you can get a pic with everyone smiling and looking at the camera??

This was the kids favorite part of the whole weekend. Uncle Adam and Auntie Caitlin set up a slip and slide in the rain! I don't think they will forget that!


  1. The best gift parents can ever recieve, a surprise visit from all those that we love and miss! It was a perfect weekend!

  2. oh yes, and don't forget the kids did not know they were heading to CT. until the policeman pulled over their mother for driving a little to fast and asked her where she was going?

  3. Thanks a lot... now Everyone knows :)
