Congrats Jenna and Matt (Shaw)!

Matt’s cousin, Jenna got married today in Maryland. They thoughtfully included the kiddos in the invitation, however after much thought and discussion we decided that it was just too much to either drive down the night before and stay in a hotel with the kids or get up super early in the morning and drive down with them before the wedding and then to expect them to sit through the wedding and reception. So, Matt drove down with his sister this morning while I stayed home with the kids. I was sad to have to miss it, but had to be realistic about how much we can expect from a 3 year old, 2 year old, and 1 year old. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness Jenna and Matt!
 
While Matt was away today, the kids and I went to a picnic/birthday party. The kids had a great time playing in the trampoline, in the sprinklers, and even in the dreaded sand – it took two shampooings to get that green and purple sand out of their hair but they sure did have fun!
