Babies bring us together...

 This is my newest great niece, Ravi...she is my oldest niece's 3 month old daughter. She lives in Seattle and this week I finally got to meet her...we all did...the whole family gathered at my sister's house on Sunday for a visit and a barbecue...
 Selin and Ravi got some bonding time...
 while the guys hung out...this is my older son, Joseph and his newest cousin, Jameson...
 Selin, my sister, Debbie and her daughter, Chelsey...Chelsey is the Mommy of Stella and Jameson...
 Here's my sister Cindy and the newly weds...Sarah and Bret...I showed you pictures of their wedding last September...
 This is my youngest sister...Laurie and her daughter Carly...Stephen and Anna had to work so they couldn't come up and I didn't take too many pictures...I got side tracked twirling Stella until I was dizzy and holding babies...sorry...we had a nice time...I just wish everyone lived closer...
Mid Summer now and I'm knee deep in projects...I have been working on this as I sit and watch a little TV...which hasn't been much these days...lousy picture though...I drew it on heavy muslin...it looks really yellow here...bad lighting I think...
Summer is moving by quickly...we stay busy around here between trips to see the boys in San Diego...last week we helped Stephen and Anna move to a new place...we felt old after that...I didn't know I could be sore in so many places all at once! This week I am going to the Long Beach Quilt Show...Thursday night, in fact, for the preview night...I like it then...not as many crowds and you get first choice at all the vendor's booths...I can't wait! I love to see all the vendors that come to these fairs from all over the country...there are so many beautiful quilts to drool over too...I hope I can get a lot of pictures...sometimes they don't allow pictures...the weather hasn't been too bad this week...we are outside every morning for a few hours...I garden...Don has been working on wood projects...he has also been helping a friend re-do a rental property...the have been remodeling just about every room...tomorrow they paint...he hates painting...but he likes his friend...so he will paint!
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

Aw Linda, you have such a beautiful family. Both of those babies, Ravi and Jameson, are adorable. I love it when the whole family can get together...it's just a really special time, for sure!

Have a great time at the quilt show. Hope you get to take some photos to share with us!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Beautiful babies, indeed! I'm just sorry (only for a minute, though!!) mine have grown up so quickly as I'd love a few minutes of baby cuddling again!
Have a great time at the quilt show!

The babies are precious and your family looks sweet! I'm like you...I wish my family members were closer to me, too! I'm afraid we are spread out from coast to coast!
Enjoy your time together!
