Whirlwind weekend...

Can you believe summer is so close to being over? It really feels like it has flown by. I know for me I am ready for the kids to go back to school. The past couple weeks have been a bit rough with the fighting going on. I guess they have had a wee bit too much together time. :)

This past weekend was a very busy one down by my parents house. We had our annual Pontow kids birthday party with all of my family. Originally this has been scheduled for June but the Mt. Prospect tornado hit and my folks were without power for many days... It was a great night on Friday with all of the cousins playing together. I don't think we could have asked for more perfect weather that night. And we all got to enjoy yummy catering from my all time favorite place, Portillo's! Take a look at the photo album to the right of all of the great pics from the party.

The party time was not over after Friday night. We then celebrated my cousin Mike and his beautifully pregnant wife, Stef's, baby shower. We are all so very excited for them. They are going to be AMAZING parents and that little baby is going to be so loved! Ally has told her godfather lots of names that she thinks would work for the baby. And every time Ally sees Stef she rubs her belly and kisses it. So, sweet to see her like that. 

We ended the weekend by having a cousin outing to see Cars 2. The kids had a blast and yes we took up an entire row at the movie theatre. Next movie we will all see together is the Muppet Movie in November. My Aunt Eileen really got us kids hooked on the Muppets when we were kids, so we look forward to all going to see this one and even Aunt Eileen will go with. :)
