So Happy Together

This weekend marked the first time, well really ever that the entire family (at least my immediate side) was together. That included me, Leo, Sweet Girl, Little Man, my sister, her husband, their daughter and my mom and dad. The last time we were all together was my sister and her husband's wedding back in 2004. But there were 3 less little people. If you want to get technical Sweet Girl was at their wedding in utero. I was looking like a bunch of bananas in the pretty yellow (pretty on everyone else) dress. I was HUGE. And top that off with the fact my hair looked like a bee hive with a total of like 51 bobby pins, I looked even larger. But I am digressing AGAIN.
Since the last time all of us were together, we've added Sweet Girl, Little Man and Olibia (as pronounced by Sweet Girl). So we had 3 little people all under 4. It wasn't as bad as you might think. Olivia is such a cute sweet little girl. She has a sweet little voice. Hopefully she didn't leave corrupted by my devil children. And she probably picked up some bad habits too (sorry Deanna and Dan...). What can I say my kids are good teachers...

We had a good time together. We went and had a big family photo shoot over at Papago Park. The spot was really pretty that had a little pond, a rock ramada, lots of palm trees and the red rocks. Very pretty. The only downfall was thanks to the high humidity it was hot as balls. At least I thought so. I'll tell you what. I sure don't miss the humidity. OMG it was gross. But it was still a good time and the sneak peek of the pictures really looks like we got some good shots. I think my shirt choice may have prove a mistake as I look 10 lbs heavier even though I've had a 5 lb loss since pairing up with my torturer personal trainer.

We had a fun evening playing the Wii. We went bowling, had a tennis match, watched Leo play baseball, and had a boxing match. I am the boxing champion. Oh yes I KO'd THREE people in a row. I kick ass so don't mess with me (at least when I have a Wii controller in my hand). It was fun and we laughed.

And of course we swam. A lot.

Deanna, Dan, Leo and I went to a "real" bowling alley and had a night out. It was very fun. None of us bowled as well as we did with the Wii...Oh well. It was still fun and we laughed. It was nice to be out.

And then our visit had to come to an end. Of course all good things must come to an end. We said we would come visit them next. Sweet Girl is already talking about our trip to CA. She keeps asking when we're going (and I don't know this yet...) and if we're going to drive or fly on a plane. I should not have said this. What the hell was I thinking? I forgot that Sweet Girl remembers EVERYTHING like that.

We at least have 2 1/2 weeks left with my mom and dad. None of want them to leave. Despite Sweet Girl telling them that I wanted them to go home...This is just NOT true!!!

yes we as the parents thought it to be a suuuuuuuuuuuper time, and my dream is to get together at least once a month minimum my ultimate dream would be to have a Christmas together,so remember dreams are seedlings of reality and I'm hoping they come true.
Love
Mom
P.S. We are not looking forward to leaving and I have to push it out of my mind especially the last story read.

We had such a blast! Thank you for having us. I am glad the cousins got to finally meet. You have very sweet children as well. The only thing Olibia has brought home is "Stop It" Ha. We enjoyed hanging out with everyone and I must buy a Wii now :) Love yas
