Thank You, Mr. Washington and Mr. Lincoln...

...for having your birthdays so close together that a Federal Holiday was created! We enjoyed our three day weekend in Gig Harbor with the whole family in one house. Below is some evidence. Mommy was quite sick with a hacking cough that I'm not yet over, so it was nice to have so many helping hands with the kiddos. Grandma made us some delicious cinnamon rolls and eggs to kick off Saturday. The day only got better for the ladies, because she (in the role of mom and not grandma) treated herself and her two daughters to mani-pedis. What fun! Thanks so much mom! Thanks also to the boys for playing with the kids back at home while we went out to get pampered. After our nails were finished we ran off to Costco to get the makings of a feast.

A little fort for the little miss.
Our Valentine dinner table.

Playing with Uncle Jake while dinner is being prepped.
There's grandma--thanks again for all the fun and treats this weekend : )

What a yummy, yummy Valentine dinner we had. Steak, rosemary potatoes, grilled peppers, grilled avocados and garlic bread. Oh my!

This delicious and darling Valentine cheesecake dessert was made by our very own Aunt Emily.

The Queen of Hearts herself.

And the whacko she married.

Pig tails flying as Uncle Bett takes her for an airplane ride.

The three uncles played a lot of "mario-cart" and gave Ezra a controller (that was never connected) to make him feel like he was part of the game.

Enjoying shoulder rides...

And a little kiss...

And a push.
Look at the guys. Their faces start out compliant and happy...and as the pictures go on they start to look a little more impatient and annoyed with the photographer : ) I hope you all enjoyed your own weekend!

Looks like a fun weekend - hope your cold is better. That cough can really wear a person out. Loved the kiss from Ezra to Caroline!

Glad you had a fun weekend there-while we were so busy here. Those shoulder ride pix are so cute!

Another fun visit - I needed an Ezra and Caroline Avy fix!
