Father's Day Weekend

Matt had to work this past weekend, so the girls and I spent the daynight at the Beach House with grandma Chris and Papa. We went up on Sat. morning and came back on Sun. afternoon. It was a lot of fun. We even went to the African Safari Wildlife Park and fed the animals! Jill loved it, but Lexi still wasn't too sure about all those big animals with their heads in our car. All in all it was a great weekend and the weather was perfect. We were even home before daddy got home from work on Sunday to wish him a Happy Father's Day. Enjoy the pictures!

Zachary Benjamin Gadfield

Matt and I took Lexi and Jill to Columbus for a quick overnight trip Sunday and met uncle Benny at COSI for a few hours. It was a lot of fun and I think Lexi really enjoyed it. There were still some things that were over her head, but we concentrated on the younger-kid attractions. After COSI, we went to visit baby Zach (and Ben & Julie of course). Lexi had been talking about holding him all week and she finally got her wish. He is just adorable - and black hair! The new family seems to be adjusting well. We can't wait to see them again soon. After visiting for a couple hours, we made it to the hotel. Lexi was more than ready to swim, so we all 4 put on our suits and hit the pool. It was really nice to just relax and both girls love the water. We are so excited for the summer and many more swim days! Enjoy the pictures.

Memorial Day Weekend

What a blur! Memorial Day weekend came and went very quickly this year. We had a lot planned and managed to squeeze it all in. It all started with the girls and I going to Haviland for the weekend. We ventured into Fort Wayne for some last minute purchases and Lexi and Jill even got to ride the 2-story carousel (Jill for the 1st time)! Then, Maely's Bridal shower was on Sat. We had a great turn-out with about 60-70 people. She got some great gifts and there was a lot of good food. After that was Maely's Bachelorette party on Sat. night. We had a blast! Then, to end the holiday weekend, Teresa, Earl, Cody, Granny and Bob came over to mom and dad's house for dinner. The kids went swimming and once again we had some great food. It was really nice to see everyone. I think it had been at least a year since we had seen Teresa and Earl! That's too long! Hopefully it won't be another whole year before we see them again.

As we were driving home on Monday afternoon, I got a phone call from Matt's mom saying that his sister Julie was at the hospital in labor! YAY! Baby Zachary Benjamin Gadfield was born on Memorial Day May 31st. Lexi is so excited and we are going down to meet the new little guy on Sunday. I am sure I will have more pictures by then. Enjoy!
