My clan was there at the ready to eat BBQ, play on the playground, toss around the frisbee and play bocce ball.
And amaze my co-workers...
That was the first half of the day. There was no nap for the Little Ones and after almost 5 hours of running around outside (for all of us) and 2 hours of basketball practice (for Emi), we met up with my parents and sister and her family for her son's 21st b-day celebration. I can't believe I have a nephew that is now 21! And that he has cousins who are only 3, 4 and almost 10!
We crashed the party at O'Connell's for about 5 minutes.
Then we went to Fuzzy's for drinks and snacketizers.
So this is my BABY sister who has the kid (Merit Scholar at OU, I might add)....and I, her older and wiser (ahem) sister who has the little Pre-Kers and 5th grader. Guess I am a late bloomer on this motherhood thing.
On the way over to Joe's Taverna (which turned out to be a bust on those of us under 21), Aubri modeled a rustic and stunning trough filled with beautiful flowers and foliage....in a color that speaks to me.
|Hello, Turquoise! This trough of lovelies is on my list!|
We actually ran into Joe himself and we reminisced about the Old Days when I was a young whipper snapper and used to frequent his establishment... That was a long time ago, folks. And I think there is still photographical evidence of it hanging up in there. (I know there is at Brothers.)
I can't believe these 2 people (whom I love very much) are old enought to have a 21 yr old kid (and an 18 year old too!).
