It has been a couple of weeks since my last post and, of course, we’ve had some great fun in the interim! 2 weekends ago, the Conway side of the family got together for a reunion. We only have these every 5 years or so and only every 10 years on dry land. The Conway’s tend to prefer someone picking up after them, making meals, entertaining the children, etc. so a cruise is normally the vacation of choice. This time, however, we all packed ourselves off to Shaver for a fun filled weekend. Everyone, except Lane and Curtis, was in attendance. I think that gave us a count of about 65 or so. There was tons of food, drink and conversation. We had a fantastic time!
This past weekend we headed back up the hill (a bit farther) to Huntington for the 4th of July weekend. As always, it was a trip packed with family, friends and fun. The Gardner/Lamberts were up for their annual camping extravaganza and we had a ball seeing Aunt Jeanie, Lisa, Tim, Taylor, Josh, Katie, Jason and little Mr. Noah!
We also got to see the Patricio clan and their adorable little ones! I am always in awe of Ashley and how well she pulls everything together. Here I was, not a stitch of makeup, in desperate need of a pedicure and having neglected to shave my legs. Ashley, on the other hand, was perfectly adorable! Oh well, I’ll blame it on pregnancy and a hectic work schedule. This trip, Chris decided to take up fishing and though we didn’t have a single bite the entire time, it was so much fun to relax on the beach and watch Haley with her Barbie fishing rod and my mom spear innocent night crawlers onto her rod!

Haley had several outfit changes during the few short hours we were fishing. She seemed to enjoy getting very muddy and then falling into the lake! We ended up walking her home in my shirt!
What a fun celebration weekend!
