Galt Family Weekend

To celebrate my mom's birthday, which was the end of September, and my 2nd brother's birthday, which is next weekend, two of my three brothers and I, along with my mom's sister and her husband, all went to my parents' house this past weekend. These visits are always too short, but we really had a great time.

On Saturday, mom and I did some shopping and cleaning. When everyone had arrived, we ordered Chinese food and ate it "family style" by passing all the boxes around the table. It was great! After, we had a fire in the fire pit I got my mom for Mother's day and then had cake and ice cream. The boys didn't go to bed until almost 11pm (WAYYYYYYY past bedtime), but it was a nice special occasion since they only see Aunt Carol & Uncle Jimmie once every 18 months or so.

Sunday, we all met for breakfast at Bob Evan's. It was a great weekend! Except for the chaotic four hour drive with the boys.

Sounds like a nice weekend! I just wish you'd stay longer so we could hang out!

I don't know how you do 4 hour drives with the kids (Maxwell specifically) b/c we tried the 2 hour trip to Columbus and it was pure H-E-double hockey stick! I thought I was going to shoot myself! REALLY! Do you think any of them slept? NO!!

Great pictures! I especially love that last one of Payton and your uncle. Way too cute! I'm so glad to hear you all had such a great time!
