I love my family.
I come from a large Italian family 8 Aunts & Uncles, 32 Cousins & 13 Second Cousins. Very Big!
Immediate family I have two brothers & sister-in-laws along with a adorable nephew & niece.
It is a lot of fun when we all get together but more personal when it is just me and my immediate family.
Two weeks ago my mother invited my brother, Adam & his wife, Renee’ along with my husband, Adam & I over for a BBQ, the day was beautiful!
We ate chicken & steak for dinner outside on the deck, we talked and laughed our hearts out over ice cream brownie sundaes. Adam & I brought Samson to play with my moms three chihuahua’s, Chikita, Poncho & Amigo. I knew mothers day was the weeks after so I wanted to get some fun shots of her dog (AKA her real children).
Poncho – his ears don’t stand up….i played with them too much when he was little!! OOPS!
Samson was jealous….so here are a few of him as well!! JUMP!!!!
After dinner we played our 1984 version of Trivia Adventure, a family tradition…..good times.

my brother Adam & Renee’
We had such a good time…..
Poncho in his usual spot…so cute
the next weekend was mothers day & my mom had her annual picnic which involves most of the family, LOTS of food & Whiffle Ball!!!
My mom loved her present also! :]
There was a rainbow…..it made me happy.
The beauty in the world around us amazes me all the time. It’s the little things like a rainbow at the end of a down poor that makes me realize how blessed I truly am to have such a large loving & supportive family.
