7/31 - All about my parent’s place and more…

After two long days of driving, we are always happy to pull up to my parent’s house. I was even happier since I was feeling crappy. Joe and I both were sick. Justin was getting over a cough. Joey was the only one who never got sick. Lucky him!!

2011-07-31_16-51-23_111My niece, Maeve, and I. This was my first time meeting her!! My brother Greg told me Maeve already had what we had so it was ok to hold her. I didn’t want to get her sick!!

2011-07-31_16-51-35_31She’s so adorable. I couldn’t take a good photo with my phone.
