Hawaii ... post on Kona to come (someday!)
Meme (Brian's mom) visited
Kaneu turned SIX and we celebrated at Legoland
We continued the celebration at the Grove, a beautiful hotel about 30 min outside of London.
do you see that grin?
While Meme was still visiting the 'rents spent a very fun weekend away with the South Africans in Amsterdam. Good weather + Great beers + Great friends = Great fun!
this pictures CRACKS me up
Then we spent a few weeks in the US ... I actually flew by myself with the kids for the first time. Yikes. I was nervous though they did great but this momma was exhausted. We got to my mom's house where my nephew, Riley, was visiting from Fl. Grammy Sue was exhausted, too! The littles had so much fun playing together and though Riley and Ruby didn't get along so great (they are both strong willed kids) it was a great visit.
we celebrated kaneu's birthday (again!) with grammy sue
Meme and Grammy Sue tag teamed to watch the kids so that I could celebrate my 37th birthday in NYC. Brian met me there from London. He was so jet lagged and couldn't really "hang" if you know what I mean. Thankfully the troops also flew in to celebrate. It was the BEST time.
when we were checking-in to the hotel I told them it was my birthday ... and they upgraded us to a suite!
Brian's brother, Mark, got married and the kids were the absolute cutest flower girl and ring bearer in wedding history (IMO)
this is actually during the ceremony - ruby kept going back to pick up the flower petals. i have to admit that she stole the show!
We also got to spend time w/our BFFs and Godsons. Love those boys!!
Then ... the kids and I spent a week at the beach before we flew out. More fun with great friends!
not the best pic of me - learned shorty after this photo that i had dermatitis around my eyes, which explains the pinkness :(
Okay ... coming up - Sept!
