Weekends


I mentioned on Friday's post that my family was arriving.  This weekend was full of fun and socializing.  I remembered to take photos of people!  Seriously -  I frequently forget to get my camera out and this time I did.  I probably remembered because my aunt was walking around taking photos to share with her family back home.

So my aunt and sister arrived Friday afternoon and we sat by the pool chatting (my sister was in it).  My husband was focusing on fixing that darn bear fence.  My son arrived just in time for dinner and dessert.

My daughter and son in law arrived in the evening completing the family gathering.



Saturday after dinner of turkey burgers and corn on the cob, we celebrated our son in law's birthday!  Yay!!  We sang, ate cake and of course there were presents.

selfie madness and 'where is the button....'
 Just like the way they arrived, my family staggered their leavings.  I've been doing all the laundry and making beds.  Putting things back where they belong.

Even though it was a busy weekend, I managed to knit quite a bit on my summer top.  I'll share photos of that later on this week.



How was your weekend?

  10. Oh Family family family!!!!!!! I love this post. You in the pool reading is awesome. Im glad you took photos. Our weekend was full of aches and pains. Fireman and I helped out extra at the barn saturday. We walked horses for 3 hours straight. The scale did not reflect my aches and pains thereafter! hahahah.

  14. Not as fun filled as yours it seems, looks like a good time was had by all and worth all the hard work. Hopefully that will be me next weekend when Victoria and her little family arrive.
