Baby D's dedication BBQ.

I'm back from a weekend getaway to Fort Launderdale and boy do I need to detox. I don't know why I have to be so extra and believe that calories don't count on the weekends or on vacations. They certainly do as I'm carrying more pounds than I did before we left. It took me less than 4 days to pack them on and will take me 4 weeks to get them off. Funny how that works.

Any who, moving along for the purpose of this post ... A few Sundays ago, Sean and I traveled to Connecticut (my sister moved from Queens earlier this year!) to see my nephew get dedicated at their church. It was truly a beautiful dedication.

Bonus points was their pastor allowing my niece to share a couple of her jokes to the congregation. "Why did the banana go to the hospital?" Pause. "Because it wasn't peeling well". "Why is six afraid of seven?" Pause. "Because seven, eight (ate) nine". At one point during his dedication, Rhys thought it would be a good idea to pull Noa's hair, she said (quite loudly) "owww Rhys that hurt!" and had us all in fits of laughter. It was ridiculously cute.

After the dedication we went to my sister’s home for a BBQ in celebration of my nephew's dedication. It was such a good time! We missed my dad (he's in Ghana) and my little sister Maryanna as she was ill that day so I can't wait for the next gathering.


I just want to eat him up.

They have been the best of friends since they were in diapers.
So awesome to see how much they love each other.
Also can't believe how quickly they are growing. Time slow down, please!

Sean made a joke when he took the picture below. As you can tell my sisters get him ;)

Your nephew is sooooooooo adorable. I can totally eat him up and all that hair.

Your niece is so grown, like seriously.

I just love the matching smiles on you and your sisters faces in that last picture.

These are my favorite kind of posts (and the vacation ones too) :).
