Memorial Day Weekend 2015. promised! I have more than the usual number of photos, and a few of my favorites are thanks to Katie who spent much of the weekend like this

Lydia shared her weekend story yesterday, as part of Carole's Ten on Tuesday. My weekend was pretty much the same as hers, except it started Wednesday evening,
the view from our deck on Wednesday evening
had no canoe-ing, no ping-pong, no pool, no zilch (?yep, really!), but a lot more walks with Holly, and the special treat of a daughter who flew in from Madison Friday evening and arrived - with Marc! - just as we were finishing dinner (it was late, but meals on these weekends tend to run that way).

Here are a few of my favorite photos. I love the story they tell. This was a wonderful weekend full of family, friends, laughter and fun!
me, my dad and my brother, Steve (aka "Lydia's husband")
loved being with Steve on his 50th birthday!
8 new iPhone lock photo
Katie, my dad and me
my mom & dad, toasting PJ (below - Steve & Lydia's older son) 
PJ is the most gifted musician in our family...he sang Turn the Page as a birthday gift to his dad
me and Sara...just hanging...

Late Saturday afternoon we took a lot of family photos...none of the whole crew, but each sibling with their family.
this is mine - me, Holly, Sara, Charlie, Marc, Katie & Rob 
highly cropped - but still such great smiles on both of them!
my dad loves to be behind the camera... sadly, I didn't take any when he was photographing my sister's family
Things slowed down a bit on Sunday... not sure why, except maybe we were tired and full from Saturday? in any event, I took a few photos, but this is the only one I saved.
life is good...this was the second book I read while I was there
Monday things really got more lake photos! But still some very happy memories. And the drive home (even with the two hour detour to get Sara to the airport) was the perfect excuse to start another book. I spent a lot of the time I wasn't knitting reading, and planning my reading (more later on that.)

I really enjoyed catching up on everyone else's weekend yesterday. It looks like summer is off to a fine start!

Wishing summer was really here; we have cold rain and 53F. But I am so cheered by these delightful photos - the one of you and your Dad and Katie, followed by the one of your Mum and Dad are especially lovely. And happy belated birthday to your brother too :). And nice to see Marc - we hear about him but don't often see him.

The smiles on everyone are contagious. I especially love the photo of your mom and dad toasting PJ. It must have been wonderful to have your whole family together.

Your family may be the happiest and most photogenic I've seen! I bet it's a reflection of all the fun and joy of everyone being together.
