We had such a fantastic time last weekend. Brandon’s sis, Aunt Courtney, came all the way from Arizona for a super fun visit.
Every year my hubby and his die hard friends and a few family members congregate to hold their annual fantasy football draft. I believe it is safe to say that said day is hubby’s absolute favorite day of the entire year! (and it has grown on me too…I love to throw a fun party and visit with friends)
Our kiddos impatiently waited all morning for Aunt Courtney to arrive and once she did the race to capture her attention was on! Auntie C usually reads our blog and I know she NEVER imagined the volume level was as high as it is in real life when she looks at our pictures. (think total sensory overload!) We filled Friday night with family fun. A lot of yummy Texas BBQ, swimming, mermaid flipping in the pool and sweet Cullen going under”neaf”. After an impromptu gymnastics show that the kiddos put on at 9pm the littles were tucked safely in bed and we had a little adult time. Not much though because this momma had to retire early in anticipation of the party prep the next morning.
The spread…and the drafting chart
My brothers Uncle Dave and Uncle Tim and Grampy are also a part of this fun family and friends day! (mimi was out of town)
I try to avoid the actual draft time because the intensity level is just a little too much for me, but I did manage to capture a few pics. I’ll let them speak for themselves. (and the speedo is a reflection of his team name…and he is just THAT funny as a person too)
The passing of the trophy and the speech
My bestie came since our kiddos are also best buds. I absolutely love seeing the joy on Ellie’s face when she has Emma around to play with. And Cullen just loves Chase!! UGH…we miss them and are praying that they end up moving this way SOON!!

Our sweet Bock-e kept the kiddos out of the adult fun and entertained them all day.
Sunday, was the good-bye day. The worst part about visiting is saying good-bye, but we know we will see Auntie C again in about 298 days. Cullen was sure he saw Aunt Courtney’s “hair”plane while we swam later that afternoon.
Dear Aunt Courtney,
B and I are so thankful that you chose to spend a few days of your visit here with us and our loud “littles”. Your ability to make them each feel special and give them your undivided attention is a true gift that you have. We miss you dearly and we are already eagerly anticipating your next visit. We love you!!!!!
