Family Weekend

A couple of weekends ago, I made a quick trip with my parents and one of my beautiful sisters to, wait for it, Las Vegas.  I know, I know, you're thinking "Vegas isn't a family trip."  But, when you have a big part of your family that LIVES in Vegas, then Vegas becomes a family destination.

We celebrated my dad's 69th birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!!) and my beautiful cousin Linda's 64th birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY LINDA!!!) and I can tell you that we had an absolutely WONDERFUL TIME.  Linda was so gracious to let us stay with her and her sweetie pie of a husband, Jimmie.  And to top it all off she hosted a huge family dinner on Sunday afternoon.  Don't I have a great family???

This is my beautiful mother, my beautiful sister, Renda, and my beautiful cousin, Linda.  Beauty obviously runs in our family.

Here is my dad, my sister Renda, and my mom!  The weather was absolutely GORGEOUS!  It was springtime in Vegas.  

If our family is involved, you know there's going to be food.  Lots and lots of delicious food.  The lady front and center is my beautiful cousin Loretta!  She came in for the weekend all the way from Alameda, California to be with us!  Thank you Loretta!!! 

This is my mom, and my Great Aunt Leda!  She's 88 years old.  My Aunt Leda, NOT MY MOM!  Sorry mom, just wanted to clarify that! 

More family and more food.  Told you we had a great time!!  And isn't Linda's house just GORGEOUS???!!

What a neat trip we had.  I am so thankful for the opportunity to get to go and I thank my parents, and my sister Renda, for including me on the trip.  I wouldn't have missed it for the world!!!  Families are such a blessing.  I know mine is a blessing to me!

  5. Looks like a great time! I'm looking forward to a kitchen redo and smiling as I look at this one.

  6. What a beautiful family! Sounds like you had a lot of fun. Glad you got to go. One of my favorite sights in Vegas is the fountains at the Bellagio. They are so beautiful at night. Happy Birthday to your dad and cousin!
