Family is the World

I don’t know what it is, but our family get togethers seem to get more and more amazing. It is hard to have a good time, when you feel bad not everyone is there. But at the same time, you have to make the most of every moment in life.

This past weekend we had our summer birthday’s celebration. We have been doing it since the beginning of time, well as far as I know, since I was born. Grandma and Grandpa always hosted the event. Everyone got together and celebrated. After they passed away the aunts and uncles took on hosting the event and now it’s down to a routine.

Highlights from this year’s celebration:

Charlotte (Amanda’s daughter) let someone other than her mom paint her nails!


Ryan got glow in the dark paint for his initials made of wood!11942322_10100587041062966_8173616422846458261_o

Dwayne was able to be there after getting out of the hospital! Massive yay! People were excited, though this photo does not capture it.


No one fought.

Connie realized her birthday isn’t in the summer.

Doing mani’s and pedi’s with all the girls in the kitchen!

It was a great time had by all.

Wouldn’t trade these moments for the world!
