Dinner with my Family
Clockwise- Nellie, Timmy, Scott, Jen, Jared, Jenni, Ryan, Alisa, Dude, Mom, Kim, Kerry
My mom and dad are the greatest parents ever! They decided it would be fun to take just us "big kids" out for a nice dinner. The Dude (that's my dad) made it very clear that NO grandchildren were invited, especially the babies. Not that he doesn't love them but I think he just wanted to be able to enjoy our company w/out all the chaos for one night. We went to Ruby River for some delicious steak and ribs. It was actually quite nice not having any kids around. Usually I'm so caught up keeping Sonrisa happy or making sure Ivy and Kaitlee are eating and not making ginormous messes that I have no idea what is going on around me. So thanks Mom and Dad for making this an unforgettable evening with you and all my brothers and sisters. My dad may be a crazy old kook but I love him more than anything and I can't help but love the sweetest mom in the world. I am so blessed to have such great parents, and in-laws for that matter. Beav and Lynn were sweet enough to drive all the way out here to watch our kids while we were gone. My girls love to have grandma and grandpa over for treats and a movie. And Sonrisa was actually healthy and happy for them this time. Yay!!!
