the weekend

The weekend was busy.
Very busy.
My baby brother graduated from high school.
I can’t believe he is all grown up.
He is ten years younger than me.
I was his second mama…
at least I thought I was when we were growing up.
Congratulations Owen!
We hung out with my family all day Saturday after Owen’s graduation.
And then we left on a little road trip.
This time to see Joel’s side of the family.
Joel’s grandparents are celebrating their 60th anniversary.
And everyone was there on Sunday to help them celebrate.
Joel’s family is huge.
I love that.
Look at all those people that are the result of Joel’s grandparents.
So cool.
We got back late last night and we were exhausted.
I was hoping to sleep in and recover today,
but Levi had his 4 month appointment this morning.
So, off we went again.
Nothing like waking up early for shots after a crazy weekend.
Sorry Levi.
Everyone kept saying how huge Levi was this weekend.
And he is.
He weighed 19 pounds 6 ounces today.
That’s my BIG boy.
Hope you have a great week!
  • Stef - Wow!! He IS a big boy! Kara is 19 months old and she’s finally hitting the 25 pound mark. But, I know she’s always been kind of small.

    Congrats to your brother! What a handsome guy 🙂 Looks like a fun weekend!ReplyCancel

  • Mindee@ourfrontdoor - I love big babies! There’s just so much more to squeeze.

    Your brother is a cutie. If my daughter were a couple of years older I’d be asking if he’d like a blind date. 😉ReplyCancel

  • The Schilling's from Cimarron - HEllo….. thank you sooo much for the baby announcement….. he is adorable! and what a chunkyyyyyy monkey……. how fun is that…..

  • Lanea - Where did you put all that family when you went to Chambers?! I grew up just 15 miles West of Chambers, but now live in Wichita, so I know there are no motels close! :)Ben & I are the same age so I know Dale & Ruthie. (My aunt & uncle are Don & Gala.) I’ve been keeping up with your blog ever since I heard about Cora – I have to say – you are a blessing to me. I prayed for you while you were struggling with Cora’s diagnosis & losing her and I have continued to pray for you when the Lord brought you & your family to my mind. Thank you for being so open & sharing your story.ReplyCancel

  • Andrea - What a sweet boy you have there!ReplyCancel
