After that, I hosted a small family cookout since my cousins from DC were in town for the Beyonce concert and the SOX game tonight. It was nice to get together last minute (legit - planned it yesterday) and all catch up. It also didn't hurt that it was a beautiful day. Unfortunately, Callie - who is Conor and Caden's age - got sick this morning so she couldn't make it. And Conor napped the whole time. So Caden basically held it down for the 2 year olds. :)
Here are a few fun shots from the day! Well, here is me and Con before the party - I felt like he needed to be represented here on the blog!
These are the dishes I made last night - a pasta salad, a few regular summer salads with spring mix, goat cheese, strawberries/blueberries, and almonds. I also cut up some cantaloupe to have as an alternative to Mikey's birthday cake. We had a couple diabetics in the group. :)
While I was at yoga this morning, Jim set up the yard. He put some water in the pool and the water table, so it warmed up by the time people arrived. Hey look - there's Con again!
Then the cousins started arriving - here is Pat, Jessie, Jimbo, and Caden.
Mikey and John Patrick!
Jen, Chrissy, and I.
My mom and her girls.
Sibling shot! Jess, Jen, and John. Jess is a radio personality on 101.7 The Bull from 10-3 everyday! Check her out on her radio station (I listen in on the iheartradio app everyday at work!). "Workin with Jessica". :)
