Now that my brother has three boys and lives in Cedar Falls and we have two and live in West Des Moines, family weekends at my parents house have turned into family reunions...and I am sure my parents are thankful for Sunday evening to come. I'm sure they love having their two children and spouses and their FIVE grandsons all under one roof but it does get a bit hectic. 5 boys all under the age of 6? Crazy.
My mom's family has their family reunion on the same weekend in July and we always try to make it back. It was great for Liam to see his cousins as its been 2 months since we were all together. He loves to play with Mitchell and Matthew.
Liam seemed to be having a good time at the reunion...
It's nice for Crystal (my brother's wife) and I to talk about our new babies, our big boys and breastfeeding. And of course, there's always "baby fight". We face Sean and Mason near each other...and at first they hold hands and smile and coo at each other...but boys being boys, "baby fight" always seems to break out.
Its always good to be around family. Being apart does seem to make the heart grow fonder...you have to be apart in order to miss someone and enjoy time spent together...as shown by baby kisses.
