Charlie and I got back from visiting my family for the weekend (the kids stayed for a few extra days!).  My dad recently retired as an electrician so we all threw him a surprise retirement party on Saturday.  Most of my dad’s brothers and sisters were able to come celebrate him, and all of my sisters (and families) also came.  My mom, sisters and I slipped away for several hours to celebrate my mom’s birthday.  It was a fun, very busy weekend that included lots of little kids!  🙂  HOPEFULLY, I’ll post more pictures tomorrow, but here are two for now:

The cousins (l-r: Wyatt, Sophie, Sammy, Eli, Abraham, Claire)

The Cake, made by my mom!
