A family affair

gOur weekend was crazy busy. Crazy. Busy. So I will ask you once again to forgive my ridiculous amount of pictures, it seems blogging has made me picture happy....among other things.

The weekend happily started with a dinner at Chilli's. For 13 people...6 adults, 7 kids. Stupid? You decide. There were so many there because Jody and Heather and the kids were able to come! (It made every ones weekend and we were so happy they were here!)

I loved these pictures of the kids while waiting for a table.
After dinner we went to Grandma's house...and somehow they talked her into Popsicles for dessert. Notice how Grandpa is joining in the fun, sometimes I think he is the biggest kid of the bunch!
Then Saturday we had a Johnson Family Reunion. This was a first for us, and it turned out to be really fun. We all met at my moms school, ate the takeout of our choice, and played in the gym. Adyson was thrilled because there was a stage there, and she put on a small concert. The kids loved having so much space to just be free and run around. After a while we played an impromptu game of baseball, which started to get more competitive by the second. We even got good old Grandpa to get out there.

And here's the whole crew. We missed those of you who didn't come!

The rest of the weekend was spent playing in Grandma's pool-and slip-n-slide. Some of the kids were pretty good at it....


And some couldn't quite figure it out. (Are you surprised that my girls weren't quite coordinated enough?) We love em'.

And of course, more Popsicles. Lucky kids.

Oh and Adyson was thrilled to have one more person to practice her "hair doing" skills on. Thanks for being such a good sport Jody!

I wonder if conquering the slip and slide is a developmental thing?! Hallie looks just like Adyson when she tries to slide. I love Sienna cheesin' it with the popsicle! Family weekend's are the best! Your girls are beautiful.

I missed you @ church today. I wanted to talk "blog." I'm glad you had such a fun weekend. I'm also glad that blogging has made you picture happy. There is one rule in life: "You can never have too many pictures."

How fun. Thats how it is when I take the family to dinner crazy!. We get lots of looks too. Tell Adyson that I pay little girls to fix my hair. I love it when kids play with my hair it's so relaxing.
