Lola's birthday

Lola, my mom, turned, well.....that's not really important is it?! What is important is that given her recent health scare this past christmas and scary diagnosis of GBS, she is here and only getting stronger by the minute.  She has truly made incredible progress in her recovery and though she still has a long journey ahead of her, she faces it with amazing strength and positivity.  I couldn't have asked for a better mom than her and I hope to celebrate many more birthdays together.  We got together for a casual bbq at my sisters new house and just had fun with the kids, cousins, aunts and uncles. My sister also revealed that she is having a baby boy in November and we couldn't be more thrilled. Although, if you asked Owen, my sisters first son, if he wants a baby brother, he politely will tell you, "no tanks"!
