Memorial Day weekend fun


We had no big, super gigantic plans for Memorial Day weekend, other than to hang out with family.
My sister and her peeps came into town. That meant a lot of extra lovin' was going round.

I stole alot of kisses from my nephew.

There were a lot of diapers being changed, feedings, and some snuggle time.

The kids did a lot of swimming.

On Day Two we had planned to hit the beach.
But a nasty storm brewing off the coast kept us at home.

Intermittent rain kept us from getting water logged and swimming away the whole afternoon.
The kids were ecstatic, though, when it would finally let up and they could swim again.

When it rained, though, Patrick took the time to put together a new train table for our back porch.
He had a lot of eager, little helpers.

And when not helping, they doted on their baby cousin/brother.

I always love hanging out with my sister.  
We are best friends. We love each other like crazycakes.
If it weren't for the rain, we would've snapped a few more photos of us together.
This was all I managed with my iPhone.

We can't wait to see them all again in a week and a half for Madeline's first dance recital.
Although I wished we lived in the same town, I'm so glad we aren't a plane trip away anymore.

And on the adoption front, I just learned that our home study was forwarded to our placing agency for review last week.  So hopefully in the next week or two, we'll get to submit our I-800A to immigration.
That means I have some serious paperwork to do.  So I better hop to it!
