The end of May my little brother Scott returned from his mission in Italy and in a week my other little brother Dave leaves for his mission to Mexico. To celebrate the homecoming of one brother and the farewell of another, my family got together in California. We had a great week. We celebrated my mom's 53rd birthday, played on the beach, met up with some friends from KY and the highlight of the trip was spending 2 long and glorious days at Disneyland. As always I took way too many pictures. Here's a sample and if you want to read more about the trip and see many many more pictures read the post bellow....

Disneyland is truly the happiest place on earth. I found myself tearing up watching my kids laugh and scream with excitement- it was pure joy!Mac and Gray were both super excited to see the characters but when we got up to them Mac hid and G ran away screaming "He's trying to eat me!"No amount of fear could keep them away from buzz! The buzz ride was their favorite too...

My mom turned 53 on the 5th. This is the first time in like 5 years that we were all there for her birthday. Weeks before her birthday we planned a little surprise. We came up with 53 memories and reasons why we love my mom. We wrote them on tags and connected them to a picture or object that represented the memory. On her birthday she woke up to the apartment decorated in "memories"
Sunday we went to the Hyde's. It was great seeing them and where they live. As we drove off the kids chased us down the street and we found ourselves missing them all over again:( I only wish we had more time to spend with them.

I can't believe it's already June!!! we had a great Memorial weekend... it started off with a drive-in movie. The night couldn't have been better- nice cool weather- no bugs and lots of running around and wrestling. Between the Grigg's 4 boys and our 2, it got a little crazy!
the minute Kung Fu Panda 2 started the boys were in the zone....
Monday we hit the pool and ended the weekend with a BBQ!
