Baby Blessing and Birthday Party

A couple of weekends ago we visited our family to celebrate the blessing of our cute little nephew Owen.  It was the first time all my siblings have been together for a long time.  Our family has grown so much over the last few years.  It was fun to have all the kids together.  The first day we were there we took the kids to the park that my mom worked hard to have built in Lincoln.  

Max was very interested in Owen, here he is holding Owen's hand.
They are 3 months apart but pretty close to the same size.  My poor kids are miniature.  


What a cute boy.
Letty, me, Max, mom, Owen, Chrissy, Ashley and Jack just chillin.
That night I got together with my besties.  We got yogurt, played games, talked and laughed a lot, you know the usual.

Jason's dad took Ollie and Lys on a tractor ride.  I guess Lys told John she didn't think it was very safe, but I think she still had fun...she is so funny.

How cute is my nephew?  Seriously!

We came home Sunday night so I could work Monday.  Then I turned around and went back up with the kids on Wednesday so we could be there for Alyssa's 7th birthday.  I have always hated missing these kinds of things when we have lived far apart, so I was happy to be able to go.  It was at one of those bouncy house places.  It was so fun.  Oliver LOVED it.

Ollie was pretty fearless.

I can not get enough of this little nugget (Max, not my mom, although I do love her too).

 A few friends and I have decided to start a little craft day each week with our boys.  Last week we decorated St. Patrick's day hats.

I am so in love with this little monkey.
