So, today my niece Alaine was married. It was a very special day
for the family. Tyler was able to come up with Mel, and we all
got to be here, except Melissa. Poor Melissa, lives so far away.
After the sealing, we went to the luncheon where we had Cafe'
Rio. YUM, with a capitol Y. Tonight it will just be desserts at
the reception, but that sounds like a perfect ending to a wonderful
day. Julie is a bridesmaid, along with Shannon, Ashley
and Julieann, Alaines half-sister.
Congrats Alaine and Justin

Julie graduated!! She is very happy to be done with high school.
She walked in with Ali and sat next to him and also right on the
end of the row, so we got good pictures of her. At least Melissa
did. I'll add those to the post when I get them from her. She is
the first child to have all her siblings at her graduation. That
was fun for me! She also had her Grandma Stallings there.
We had gone to Lucille's barbecue beforehand. Got some
cute cousin good-bye's there also.

Now it's on to college!

We had to hit the beach at least once!

One day while Melissa and Michelle were visiting, we thought
it would be fun to go meet Tyler for lunch at the new Cafe'
Rio in Costa Mesa. Since we were so close to Newport
Beach, we decided to go pay a visit. It's always fun to be
at the beach.

Stella was looking forward to holding Macy

Stella is going to be such a good Mommy
I had all my children here for a week! I LOVED it. I love
when I can have them all together, the cousins can play
together and get to know each other better. The
added bonus to them all being here right now, was
they got to all go to Julie's high school graduation.
What a treat. I'll post pictures from that later.

Memorial Day fun

Holly's birthday

Today is my oldest child's birthday. For those who don't know
I had a daughter before my son Tyler, who was born prematurely
and lived for 3 days. I'm happy to know that I will have her for
eternity. And I get to raise her during the millenium. Happy
thoughts. So....Happy birthday Holly.
