weekend rhapsody IV

recap: monday afternoon

my in-laws hosted a fabulous patio party on monday for the fam. dan was in his element; outdoors with burgers on the grill and siblings left & right. it was a happy memorial day. dan's family kept saying, will this be on the blog? and i said of course! this party was very blogworthy. everyone deserves their spot in the sun, especially a few of my favorite faces.

after saturday night's rain, their garden was greener than ever. so refreshing; this backyard is nature at it's loveliest. (i absolutely love this picture of dan & shanna.)

i wouldn't put it past shanna to scoop sorbet into individual shells, she's very martha stewart like that... but when you can find these darlings at your local costco, why go to all that work?! look how divine these are. and so delicious too. seriously sweet with fun flavors. mmmm. mmm. am dreaming of them still.

cute mary and olivia. benji boy was happy to stay up from his nap to hang with cousins. he had so many good arms to lounge in.

this is where the family slideshow ends. phew.
we'll now return to regular scheduled programming. hooray.
thanks for enjoying the weekend wrap-up with me.

You'll have to teach Benji to read using your blogs. That way he'll see what a fabulous childhood he had!
