This past weekend CK, the kiddo and I spent our time there as we attended my Thea Joanna and Uncle David's 50th wedding anniversary at the Barn at Monticello.
(Side story: the last time I was at the Barn, I accidentally spoiled my cousins surprise 16th birthday party because it was 2008 and I didn't think she would be reading Twitter, whoops.)
So many of my Thea Joanna and Uncle David's friends and family joined in the celebration - even sissy flew in from NYC. We had great food, MANY laughs and a wonderful, walk down memory lane photo movie (courtesy of Grog) that had us laughing and crying. We watched it again and again laughing at the fashion statements, awkward stages and hippies that they once were.

Saturday CK and I met with Father Nick to get everything ready with the diocese for our wedding at St. Haralambos. If this wedding wasn't real before, it sure is now!
During the evening the family came over to Stepho's new townhouse for a foodie worthy taco and game night. A home isn't quite a home until there's a game night, right?
|Gather round the kitchen, it's dinner time + "MAGIC" + Story time magic with John + Heads-up on the iPhone, natch.|
Great weekend, great times and THE BEST family. I'm so lucky to have all these people in my life.
Happy Thursday, kids.
