memorial day weekend

what an incredible weekend this past one was! on friday my parents and i drove up to NY for my nephews first birthday party. i was so bummed that evan had to work and couldn't come along, but no way was i missing out on some much needed time with the fam (sorry babe!). so at 3:45am on friday (yup, my dad's nuts and is all about beating that traffic) we hopped in the car and off we went.

here are a few peaks of my days in NY...

arriving in NYC!


avery's first time using swimmies!


kiddos making s'mores


crashing in my nephew's room


my 2 year old niece thought she was a big shot after her cousin straightened her hair


kickin' it poolside in the sweltering heat!


nephews... the sleepy one's the birthday boy :)


driving home...


back home with my bubbies. i missed these dang faces!


the older i get the more i definitely miss hanging out with my brother & sister, and their little families. we make a point to see each other every couple months, but sometimes i just wish they lived right around the block so i could see them everyday. these trips always go way too fast!

adorable! i can definitely hear you on the spending time with family when you get older bit! i feel the same way about my siblings, who mostly all live at home still. whenever i come to my family's house and they are all there- i feel so blessed that all of these amazing people live under one roof. i think growing up and moving away makes you appreciate those people even more than you would if they were living with you every day!

you are absolutely right sami! i'm so very grateful that i have a family that i really enjoy spending time with. i would hate for it to be on of those things where you only see each other at holidays and dread it the whole time you're together. that would be awful! we are some lucky ladies i guess :)
