New Nephew and family fun

This past weekend, we got to spend some time with Grammy, Grandpa and Aunt Emy. They had plans to come and visit for Mitzie's baby shower, but in a crazy change of plans, they ended up being here to meet sweet baby Dylan. He was born about a week ago at 26 weeks, weighing in at 1 lb 8 ozs. Such a cute tiny little fighter! On Friday we did a girls trip over and worked on his 'beads of courage'. He earns beads for procedures he has done, milestones he meets, milestones his parents meet and his time in the hospital. A really cool keepsake to see all this little man is going through early in his life.

While we were at the hospital, the boys stayed home with all the kids. They swam, played games, watched movies, built forts and this.....

 Fun and trouble when Grandpa's in charge. These cute cousins had SO much fun with each other. The girls love spending time with their Uncles and Aunts and love having Grammy and Grandpa around, they never wanted to go home. That night, we got a babysitter and all the adults when out for a yummy Thai dinner. So tasty and so fun to relax and joke and just spend time with each other. 

Saturday we did a big family dinner at our house. It was Emy's birthday and I love to cook, so it was nice to have everyone here. Lots of playing games, lots of laughs, lots of yummy food and of course some yummy dessert. SO much fun. I love being with my family now that we are all adults. Watching our kids run around and play, laugh about memories from when we were growing up. It was a really great weekend, excited for the next time we can all be together and even more excited to watch sweet baby Dylan grow. Can't believe how much we all love that tiny boy already, he is such a little miracle and so amazing!
