Well, it was about time for another mini-reunion with all of us Dascenzi girls since it's been (are you ready for this?) 2 YEARS since we've all been together at one time. Crazy, huh!
Anyway, Lauren and her family arrived about 2 weeks ago and the fun began. Michelle and her family came the following weekend for 4 days and by that time all of the kids were infected with some sort of cold/virus. Not only that, but every single kid got pink eye--plus Katelyn. Luckily we kept the trip low key. No Disneyland or anything this time--just laid back fun in the backyard and flexible schedules. Very low stress (except for the whole non-stop chaos and elevated noise levels throughout the house).
We went to visit my Papa (known as 'Poppy' to the kids) and played in his yard one day.
I wish this picture was better because Maggie kept smelling the flowers and sticking her nose right into the center of the flower, which left a lovely yellow pollen residue on her nose--and some moderate sneezing side effects.
Poor Joe was starting a cold that day and wasn't really up to par, but I still think this picture is cute.
Since blogger puts my pictures out of order this was actually supposed to go at the end of this post b/c this was taken the last day they were here and Tyson pretty much summed it up for all of us: TIRED.
Rex, Maggie & Charlie in the bath--this is what Maggie did when I said "Smile!"
Nice group shot, right? Since none of the kids looked that great in ANY of the pics we took, I just chose the best picture of Lauren and I.
This is how she poses for the camera now--with her finger under her chin. I swear I'm not training her to do this, but it certainly looks like she learned it from someone!
The Keller's: Travis, Lauren, Rex & Tyson (this was the best one I got--naturally neither of the kids are looking).

The Marrs family (once again, no kids looking at the camera)
This was Delaney's face when I said "Don't pick Poppy's flowers"
