Here we go again, I'm posting some more pictures from our summer vacation. After a few days in Utah, we took our rental minivan to Las Vegas to visit my sister and her husband and kids, Aunt Valerie and Uncle Sean, and their two sons, Parker and Brendan. The last time the kids were here, Christopher was in a stroller!
We arrived the day after Lindsey's birthday, so Valerie continued the party and made her house very festive and birthday-like for our arrival.
Parker is six months younger than Lindsay. They're both juniors in high school.
They have a swimming pool in their back yard and beautiful palm trees and other lovely landscaping features.
I love these colorful and bright spheres.
The inviting, bold, bright colors were the theme for the Mexican dinner that Valerie whipped up.
Lindsey was excited for another family party for her birthday.
We had a ton of guacamole--it was really delicious!
Sean is such a great guy. He and Valerie are such a perfect match for each other. My sisters all have totally wonderful husbands, each of them is completely different from the others, but they all seem to match their wives to a T.
Here is Lindsey getting a non-cake from Aunt Valerie. I thought the Pop-Tart was hilarious and so cute. We were not the least bit hungry after dinner, so this was really cute.
Here's the gang all together, minus Kelly and me.
The kids at at the bar stools and the adults at at the kitchen table.
What a nice treat to have Mexican food, one of our favorites, for dinner. Thanks, Valerie and Sean! It was excellent!
Time for Lindsey to open presents!
She got a cute red wallet and a pretty black blouse. I think there was one other thing, but I can't remember what it was.
