300th Post & 4th Pics!

It is the 300th Post! When we first started this blog at the beginning of 2007, I thought that it would document bringing Mario home to us. It has become a little family scrapbook for me to put pictures. I am happy there are still a few of you out there reading. It is nice to know that our story and our family is interesting enough to keep you coming back! :-) Even though I don't blog often, I do like to come back and look at how much my own kids have grown!

Our 4th of July was spent with my brother, Jack and his wife Vicki at their house! They had a combined birthday party for their 3 kids, Zach, Josh and Riley who all have summer birthdays! It was a beautiful day, and we had so much fun! Here are a lot of photos of the day (since I ran out and got a new camera card right before the party! :-)

My parents with their grandkiddos! (I took 8 pictures, and this is the best one I got with everyone looking in my general direction.)

Mario did NOT want to go on the swings alone... he loves his Sissy!

Zach and Mo look so serious!

This is my favorite pic... if you see the little Guat legs running, and ALL 4 kids chasing him!
awwwwwww, some Sissy and Riley love
Never a nice pic of Alli... why the face? Teenagers!
I loved this one, sweet!
Riley is so strong! :-)
I love Pap Pap who gives me chippies!
mmmmmm Chippies
