Family reunion time

Hey friends and family! I get on my blog the other day and saw I have finally hit 5000 views!!!! I thought, "ok, I need to post again", so here we are.

Here we are in July and in some ways time is in slow motion, and in other ways, it seems to be going so fast. One exciting thing that happened this month is this big family reunion we had for my dad's 60th bday. It has been a while since we have all been together, and it was so wonderful to have all the siblings all together. All grown up.

We all went to Tilden park and had a BBQ/picnic for my dad. It was wonderful. Here are some pictures!

This is my dad RIGHT before he realized Matt was standing next to him. It was a WONDERFUL surprise!"WHAT!!!?"Adam playing "patty cake" with Mia. Priceless....

Then, all week I got to see my brother and his adorable family, Vanessa, Mattie, Jacob, and Mia. We went to Roaring camp and rode the train through the redwoods.

We went to the boardwalk and rode roller coasters!Matt's family on the ride together!!

Overall, it was a week full of fun, laughs, and family. We need to do this more often.

Now, my house is so quiet...filled with sounds of pugs snoring and people's court and price is right.... But thats ok with me too. I am thankful for my family. They are each so special and amazing in their own way. I am thankful for my husband, who continues to fill my life with laughter and happiness.

Happy 5000 views to me! Keep reading! (and commenting!)
