Saturday, July 9


We had a super fun weekend!! We went to 2 celebrations on Saturday...a Wedding for our old babysitter, Nikki and a birthday party of our great friend, Chuck
Here is our family at the wedding of our babysitter, Nikki.  Nicholas is wearing a suit for the first time...boy was he excited to look like daddy!! Nikki had a beautiful wedding Mass at our church in the afternoon.  I cannot believe that she is old enough to be married.  It seems like only yesterday that she was in high school and coming to babysit for my kids!
From the wedding, it was off to a birthday party of our great friend, Chuck!  He is so tall that my kids use "Mr Chuck" as our family's unit of measure...."mom is that sign taller than Mr. Chuck?"..."Dad, do you think that Mr. Chuck could fit in this room?"  They talk about him all of the time.  I guess that they do not see any tallness in either of our all in all Chuck holds a very special place in our hearts!
 Chuck's birthday party was a pool party complete with a Mariachi band and pig roast!!  It was super fun!!  Savannah learned how to do a flip off of their diving board.
 There is her good friend, Joey watching all of the trick action!!
 Between visiting with friends, Jeremy and I took out time for a picture together...We don't have many of us together....I am trying to focus on getting more of those
Me, Lori and Elizabeth "Lizzy" on the far left!  Lizzy is Chuck's beautiful wife!  We are so blessed to have such great friends!! We chatted and laughed all night!!  I will miss seeing my girlfriends on a daily basis next year when we homeschool...gotta make it a point to keep up with them!! Maybe a regular coffee date one morning a week?!?! I am actually sipping on a Starbucks white mocha right now!!......I love coffee
