There were so many great photos from this weekend that I had to post several. The rehearsal dinner was at Denis Seafood. The wedding was at Brenner's Steakhouse. It was beautiful and there were many teary eyes during the event. The weather couldn't have been more beautiful. And it was obvious that everyone had a great time. Jack really enjoyed meeting Kathleen's parents and was caught several times spending time with Kathleen's mom. Kaylyn had a blast playing with Kendall. Kendall's dad, Jared, and his brother Jeff, kept the two girls entertained all evening. Brian's toast was so emotional that he even had the servers holding back tears. The food was excellent and we got to eat Crave cupcakes after dinner. What a great night! Congratulations to Scott and Kathleen as they embark on their new life together. Last night's wedding was a great way to kick it off!

We let the kids have their first run of the season through the sprinklers today. Kaylyn wore her brand-new bathing suit (which already seems small). Jack wore the swimming trunks that wouldn't fit him last year. They had great fun running and screaming and getting soaked. Now we're about to grill burgers again for a nice dinner outside. I love this time of year.

Brian and I feel very good about our hard work on the front and back yards the past couple of weeks. The front looks alive again and the rose bushes are growing back in nicely. We got a nice, new, BRIGHT garden flag with a ladybug (Kaylyn's favorite) on it. We re-vamped the backyard and now with a new flower bed, bird feeder, and swing, we actually like spending time out there. We had a backyard dinner picnic on Monday. The kids loved it. I love spring!

Well, this is the first day in weeks that I have truly felt at peace. Jack has recovered quickly from his heart cath procedure last Thursday and is back to his normal self. I took my kids to church for Easter Mass with me and my family today. One thing they were missing was their daddy, who had to work. They also miss their grandpa who is in the Philippines. Today reminded me of how blessed we are. I spent the day watching my children have fun with my family. We are so lucky to have so many loved ones who surround us in our everyday lives. And I was reminded in the last few days of how many loved ones we have that are far away. I hope everyone had a blessed Easter holiday. I think we have much to be thankful for. Happy Easter everyone!
Here are some pictures from the Easter festivities at my Tito Dading and Tita Mai's house.
