5.30.12 – Memorial Weekend and Baby Shower

29 May

We are back in PA after a super fun weekend in Indiana. I flew back earlier in the week than originally planned to attend my Great Grandma’s funeral. It was a sad day but a beautiful service that truly showed how many lives she touched during her 99 (almost 100) years of life.

Coming home early also gave me a chance to spend more time with the family. We ran errands, opened the pool, put the final touches on the kitchen renovation, and watched Annie play soccer. By Friday, the whole gang was at mom and dad’s house – Kyle made the long drive and Kyla and Ryan came up from Indy. It was great to all be in one place.

Saturday was our baby shower! Friends and family came in from all over Indiana and Illinois to help us celebrate our baby girl. Mom, Tracy, Ashley and Kandyce did an amazing job putting together a beautiful shower for me (thank you so much, ladies!). It was such a happy day for us – we are so blessed to have such wondering, caring, generous people in our lives to help us prepare for our next big adventure, and it was so great to see everyone. Thank you to everyone who traveled from near and far to share in our special day! Words can’t express how appreciative we are for all of you. 🙂 (see pictures below)

The rest of the weekend was spent playing games and enjoying the steamy weather poolside. Some of the family spent Sunday at the Indy 500 – the hottest race ever – while some of us opted to stay by the pool. We enjoyed lots laughs and yummy food, played pool volleyball, and games. I really couldn’t have asked for a better Memorial Weekend, and it was hard to say goodbye.

Despite the crazy storms and rain, we made it safely back to PA, and we are back to our regular schedule. It’s hard to believe June is almost here. We have lots to look forward to this summer, and we still have some weekends open if anyone wants to come for a visit! 🙂
