Busy Weekend!

I took Wednesday, Thursday - had Friday, Saturday and Sunday off, but I think I need a day to rest! We've been so busy!

I can't wait to dump all my pictures here... but first, a quick 10 great things about the family visit so far...

1 | The Baptism of Lucas - So many traditions, rituals and new things for us!

2 | Gene and Christina's Marriage - we didn't get to witness the first one in Yuma, so It was fun to be part of this one.

3 | The bonfire tonight - and teaching "The Greeks" about S'Mores.

4 | Getting to know my younger cousins better - we have spent many years apart, or not being able to share stories since we were small, now it's easier to talk and awesome.

5 | Remembering Grandpa in the small ways when we're all together.

6 | Singing our dinner prayer every night before our meal - "Be Present at our table LORD be here and everywhere adored, these mercies bless and grant that we, may feast in paradise with thee... amen".

7 | Watching Grandma in a new city - seeing new things for the first time.

8 | The Duck tour... there I said it.

9 | Sharing my love of Trophy cupcakes with everyone

10 | Sharing our life here with everyone

It's been a great trip!
