This weekends festivities were a little bitter sweet for us. We got to spend lots of time with family but we lost a very dear family member - Grandpa Matrale - I know you are happy to finally go meet the love of your life and that you greatly missed her. The rest of us here will all miss you tons and we will always smile talking about you and all your great stories!
Saturday we hung out with the Matrale clan swimming, bbq-ing and remembering Grandpa. AJ & Dylan loved playing with their cousins - It was hard to get AJ out of the pool that she was in ALL DAY LONG. Dylan had his first cupcake and of course he loved it!!
Sunday we went to my moms to BBQ with my family. Again, a little bitter sweet because Uncle Don was in the hospital. We again ate some yummy food (Alex was the awesome grill master) and AJ and Dylan were thrilled to have their cousin Julia to play with all day! I want to end with a great big THANK YOU to all the men and women in this great country that give up so much so we can all have so much!
