Lil Max is READY to GO!
Grumps and his youngest sister, Dottie.
Ladies working in the kitchen. Everyone was concentrating really hard; you could hear a pin drop!
Grumps is always a favorite with the kiddos.
All the excitement wore Sam out. Ok, not really. The kid falls asleep everywhere... :)
Cutie cousin Eddie..
Lil Max in the bouncy house
All 8 of the Friedrichs' (from L to R): Boogie (Ines), Patty, Ellen, L.G. (aka Grumps), Chuck, Maryanne (Min), Bill and Dottie.
Lil Max LOVES blowing bubbles
Such a beautiful place to relax.
Cousins and second cousins. Too many to name (but I CAN..and that counts for something!)
Our sweet family!
Grumps and lil Max contemplating life...or marshmallows
Yeah. Definitely marshmallows...
The weekend was also special because we surprised my parents (Granna and Grumps) with a celebration for their 40th wedding anniversary (which was June 13th).
At first they were wondering what was up with a hot air balloon on their anniversary cake...
And then they realized that Max and I got them two tickets for their own hot air ballon ride as a present. I think they liked it...we'll see after they go on their adventure. Granna asked if she was allowed to wear a parachute... :)
Lil max was just hamming it up so he could have some cake. He REALLY likes cake...
...and he also REALLY likes balloons....
It was a wonderful weekend, and we are so happy we got to share it with so many wonderful family members!!
