My cousin Ellen, and her fiance Matt, finally tied the knot last Friday. It was a very small private ceremony for the parents, siblings and grandparents only. However, they had a celebration party over drinks and hors d'oeuvres on Saturday, which we attended. We wish the new couple all the best!! :)
We had a great time seeing my mom's side of the family. My grandparents (Clock and Nana) are also out here visiting, to be a part of Ellen's wedding and to meet Callum, so Callum and I have made a couple trips over to my parent's house last week to spend time with them. And, because all my family was in town this weekend, we got together for a nice dinner at Buca di Beppo on Sunday night. It was great to spend time with the family, but I think the extra attention was wearing on Logan, as he couldn't sit still for very long. Thankfully, we had a room to ourselves, but it was clear as we were approaching his bedtime that he wouldn't have enough energy to go out and see fireworks (which I was REALLY wanting to do this year since I know he would have loved it). What a bummer. :(
So instead, we bid our farewells and headed home to watch fireworks on the TV for a bit before bedtime. It definitely isn't the same as sitting smack under the real thing, but he liked it alright. I think what he liked more was the fact that we let him stay up later than usual because of it. ;-)
Since yesterday was a holiday, we had an extra day to hang out and enjoy the beautiful weather. We connected with the Jodoins for lunch and then went back to their place to let the boys play all day long. They (and we) had a great time together, as always. Thanks guys!
