Busy Weekend

This weekend was pretty busy. We had a fun kid's birthday party for my cousin's little boy. He turned 6. He and Zachariah get along great when they actually get together. My cousin is in the military and currently serving overseas. But he will be home soon, so his wife and son are moving back to New York. We'll miss having them nearby. It's been great to see so much of them, but I'm glad their family will be reunited. And just in time for the arrival of their long-awaited second child's birth too.

Anyway, at the birthday party we actually had all the great-grandchildren together. That's never happened. First of all because Easton is a brand-new addition. And secondly because two of the kids are in the process of being adopted into my other cousin's family, so they've only had them for less than a year. It was fun to see all the kiddos together though and get a neat picture with my grandmother...their great-grandmother. The picture was posted this weekend if you're interested.

It was such a long weekend, that my child (he-who-never-naps) fell asleep on the couch Monday morning. He was pouting about something, then slept in this position for well over an hour. It's so unusual for him to fall asleep anywhere but in bed. And to sleep through all the normal activity going on around him, complete with baby cries. That was one worn out kid.

I'm glad we're well into this week with other things to keep us going. What's keeping you going this week?
