The first two weeks this month Grandma Lucy was here to visit (she arrived the day before Grandma Deb left) and she stayed with the older two kids while Matt and I went to Maui for a friends wedding (we took Penny, since I'm her food source haha). Erin and Dan were here as well before and after the Maui trip (it was Erin's sister Kate who got married). While in Maui I was able to meet up with some family friends I haven't seen in about 19 years, the Kittner's. After returning from Maui, Kim and her youngest daughter Hailie came to visit for a few days so they could see Lucy before she went back home.
I loved having everyone here; it was fun and also very helpful as well. But after 7 weeks of non-stop guests, it was finally time for me to be with the kids by myself during the day. It hasn't been too bad, thankfully, since Penny still sleeps a lot. The older ones keep me busy by breaking up fights over toys, cleaning up messes, and just the usual of making sure they aren't getting into trouble.
It was also my birthday this month and I am now 32yrs old. Yikes, when did THAT happen?? haha!!
Below are pictures taken from our camera, then I will post pictures from Grandma Lucy's camera. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the pictures!
