Family Time

This past weekend the boyfriend and I flew up north to spend some time with his brother and family. Brother was supposed to have surgery to remove his tumor on Friday, but it didn't happen. And we found out Thursday night, after all his pre op stuff had been completed. Its a frustrating story. And it could have made for a bad weekend, but the family managed to make it fun. I played poker (I think I'm getting good), ate TONS of food, learned how to play Yahtzee, threw a little beer pong in, and spent a day taking some more fun pics

It was a good day - minus the tick removal party we had once we got home. But even that seemed to turn out funny. I wish his brother and girlfriend lived closer, I love spending time with them.


  1. Looks like you had a wonderful time! Great pics!


  2. So glad you were able to make the most of the weekend! Hope his surgery will be able to proceed soon. I know that he probably wants that sucker gone ASAP.

    PS..I <3 your wellies!

  3. i'm here from ashley king's blog.

    sorry to hear about your brother and the tumor - how scary :(

    that sounds like an awesome time - yahtzee is such a fun game - learned as a kid and still like playing it at family parties and get-togethers.

  4. Glad you had a great weekend together! Did you change up your blog? I like it!

  5. I so sorry to hear about your boyfriend's brother - what kind of tumor? My brother-in-law has an inoperable one (Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma) so they're treating it w/chemo/radiation/stem cell transplant. Tell him our well wishes are being sent to him as well as prayers. I have one of those "fun" tick removal parties myself - I now have a phobia thanks to them! Glad you had a great time.
