Hold still, you're going to get wet!
First up, I hosted a bridal shower for my youngest sister who is now just a mere few weeks away from her wedding day (yay!). It was a vintage-garden-themed-brunch shower. We were to all wear big floppy hats, sip mimosas or tea, and nibble on fruit, bagels, and sweets while enjoying conversation, gifts, and a game all out in my backyard. June can be a little tricky weather wise around here, and especially the first part of June. True to it's past history, the day turned out to be a bit blustery. We tried so hard to keep with the outdoor theme, but at some point, you just have to count your losses and invite people, you don't really know very well, into your home which hasn't been cleaned or prepped for visitors. Bliss.
Afterwards, we sat on the porch and enjoyed some sunshine:

Here are some of my favorite pics (although we are missing a large number of pics due to getting the wrong disc from USF):
Besides Wizarding World of Harry Potter, there was other fun to be had:
|A little bit of Mexico the Epcot version|
|New York City|
|The Hubs thought he would try out for Fear Factor, but missed the final cut for casting.|
|My roller-coaster riding junkies.|
|Ah, yes. The Tower of Terror. Back row, baby! (at least that's what the kids said)|
|Purposely acting silly on the Revenge of the Mummy roller coaster|
|I sprung for the digital PhotoPass so I could be part of the pics this time.|
|Saying good-bye was sad, alas, it was good to get home.|
(Seriously, these kids these days! We had Barbies, coloring books, and our imaginations. That's it!)
We still had a good time as a family (my parents and uncle joined us), and it was very special to see my grandma, who is 96.
|We heart you Netflix|
|How cute is she?|
|The Little Man's favorite part: 4 Wheeling|
|The Girl's favorite: Catching frogs|
|Grandpa's favorite: Driving tractors with the grand kids|
And speaking of rest stops...here's a good place for a rest.
Up next: pictures I can't believe I even took, swimming, and a birthday boy.
June, you were so busy!
