Lotsa Fun-ah!

We had lotsa, lotsa, LOTSA fun this weekend. Not sure if "lotsa" is a word, but I'm going to use it anyway. Such a wonderful weekend...

Friday was Slice of Shoreview an outdoor artfair/festival that brought back childhood memories. We went with our cousins. I have only one picture from the eve...

My handsome husband!!

After the Slice ... our cousins headed in for the night and we went to a going away party for Bre and Dana. They are now in the Bahamas and then will head to Alabama..
 Bre with Peyton... cutie pie! (not her baby :))

Saturday was a FULL day! We spent the day with Shell, Paul, Zoe, Bay... my parents... Jonna and Kyle... It started by lunch and then the como zoo!

Yummy! Lunch with the crew :)

 Zoe, Bay and Mom by the Flamingo exhibit!

 Hangin' out with Jonna and Kyle at the Fantastic Sams

Kyle's Parents own 3 Fantastic Sams. It was a grand re-opening of one... The girls got haircuts!

Bay getting her hair cut! Super cute!

Saturday Eve was amazing... More of the story to come later :) :)

Sunday was WONDERFUL! We met up with Grandma and went to my 2nd cousin, Kenzie's Graduation Party...

 Kenzie is going to St. Thomas in the fall! We are SO excited for her!

Sunday night was a BIG night for the Thurston/Page Clan! Timmy, my bro-in-law was baptized. Mark (father-in-law and youth pastor) had the privileged of baptizing him! Such a sweet moment :)


And... little Liv was dedicated! Dedication is so unique - it is declaring that as parents, family, church body we will pray for Liv and be an example to her by our faith! We are so excited for Olivia, our sweet niece. She will already be ONE next week!!!



We LOVE our family. It is so fun that we can have such close relationships! We miss our family from Seattle... so it is perfect they are here this summer for a visit! Onto another full week...

Lord, I dedicate this week to you. Have YOUR way!!

So many blessings in one weekend! Congrats to your brother in law for getting baptized and for Liz's dedication! I always love being apart of dedications at church. You can just feel the love radiating off of the families and it's so nice to be able to say prayers for a new life.

I'm so glad you had a good weekend :)

I vote that "lotsa" is a word!! I use it all the time! :) :)

And how sweet that your father-in-law got to baptize his son! I remember when I got baptized and my Dad got baptized the same day, that still makes that day extra special for me!! :)
