Labor Day Weekend

We had a wonderful weekend.  Saturday we went to Big T's brother's house and had a great time.  We made some German potato salad that morning and left it in our fridge!! ugh!  We also left the pictures we were going to give out.  I have no idea where our brains were. 

Big T's brother and nephew came along with their families.  It's always nice to spend a pretty Saturday afternoon outside talking and laughing.  The food was great and the company was even better.  Two other friends also came by who we were very happy to see.  They are such a sweet couple and we enjoy talking with them. 

We stuck around after everyone left and was outside talking to Big T's brother about his stint in the service.  He retired a CW04 (I think that's right - please correct me guys if I'm wrong!) from the marines.  Anyway, he met a ton of very interesting people and was given a pair of cufflinks from President Ronald Reagan.  What's amazing about this is that he gave these to L!!  Big T and I were both awe struck that he did this and we are so thankful for it.  J & J had decided that since they have 2 sons and 2 grandsons that their godson should get the cufflinks.  Wow!  Thank you!!

On Sunday we had planned to go to the lake but the weather was a little bit unsettled so we hung out at home and cleaned up a bit.  Monday we went to a nearby state park and cooked some hamburgers and hotdogs.  It is a very nice park that has a swimming area too.  L brought his best friend with him and they enjoyed diving off the diving board.  Little T enjoyed wading and watching everyone.

WOW! These are some awesome photos and layouts. Love the one of L and T sleeping beside each other and how great that he received those cufflinks that were a gift to his uncle from Ronald Reagan. Your family is so wonderful and I hope I get to see you guys again soon. Little T is getting so big and she looks like she is doing great!!!

Hugs,
Jonni
