Merry Go Round

Another great, summer, weekend!

Saturday was the annual family picnic for MSWFT, this year it was held at Knott’s Berry Farm and with Kaelen at this fun exploring, wanna see everything, hate my stroller, dance to the music, age it was pretty eventful!! Of course she’s still just a little too bitty for most of the rides and it was a hot and humid 95 degrees so we didn’t stay too long.

After Knott’s it was off to the Bowman’s retirement party with the rents where we were able to ditch this little Miss and have some Mommy & Daddy time. After the sun gave us a break Knott’s turned out to be loads of fun! It’s been so long since Kyle and I got to be giggly little kids so it was nice! And the kicker of the whole day…going back to Mom & Poppa’s to hang with the rents and “Bash”…which is apparently Kaelen’s new name for Auntie M! Kyle and I always have a blast with Matt and Megan but I think this time was a little better do to the beer, booze, salsa and whipped cream!!!

Sunday was just as it should have been, a nice day resting by the pool, dinner with Grandma and Poppa and loads of laughs with the babe! My weekends with my daughter and my husband are all I look forward to, and when you throw in a few good friends, the most amazing family and tons of laughs, they couldn’t be any better!!!

Family and Fireworks

Kaelen spent a little time each day on the boat with us, with the heat and the sun we didn’t want to overdo it, so Grandpa was nice enough to keep an eye on her while we played in the water. Thanks Pops! The 4th was great! We took Patri out to the sandbar and let her play in her car, she is such a water baby and she loves being in the boat. After spending the day floating from the dam and hanging at the sandbar we headed back out on the boat to catch the firework show, at the casino, from the water! I must say there is nothing like floating down river with a cocktail in hand, full moon overhead, watching fireworks, hanging with your fam!

Sunday was another great day! We took Tiff and Fab out wakeboarding which was hilarious to watch! I must say they both did amazing for never having done it before. Bothe Fab and Tiff got up on their first trys...of course being up didn't last long but it was still impressive! After we all had a good laugh and a lot of fun boarding we gave Grandpa a break and picked up all the kids. Our niece and nephew went out with all of us for some more floating and fun at the sandbar. Again, Kaelen had a blast, she absolutely loved having her cousins there to play with and the music blaring from the other boats was just what she needed to get her boogie on.

Here’s to another amazing weekend with my family
