Family Weekend

Our favourite people to hang out with are our family members.  This past weekend, we got to spend time with almost everyone in our immediate families.  On Friday night we met up with Christopher's sister Vicki, and her husband Will at The Artful Dodger.  We ate incredible pizza, and watched stand-up comedy, which was part of a new event called Homegrown Comedy (featuring Saskatchewan talent).

 
On Saturday we had my sister Leah over for a little visit, before heading with her to the Cathedral Village Arts Festival.  We ate some snacks, and she insisted on taking a silly picture of us:


Aside: my sister got a second cat (brother of her first cat), and I'm pretty much obsessed.  Finn slept on me the entire time I visited him recently.


He's cross-eyed.  I don't think he could get any cuter.

After the Cathedral Village Arts Festival we went to Christopher's parent's house for a visit.  We sat out in the backyard, before enjoying a lovely lamb dinner.


And just when we thought Saturday couldn't be any more fun, we went to see three awesome bands, including some of our pals, at The Artesian

We had an awesome time.  When the music was done, we walked home so Christopher could make me snacks.

On Sunday we did a bit of yard work:


We then spent the afternoon at Christopher's brother Steve, and his wife Mel's home.  We visited with them in the backyard of their new place.

In the evening we went out with my dad, my brother and his girlfriend, my sister, and my nephew to celebrate my dad's 73rd birthday.  We ate at Silver's, but I wasn't feeling well, so I took my meal home.



The only person we didn't get to see was my mom, but we'll be seeing her in two weeks when we go on a little road trip.

How was your weekend?
Did you spend time with any family members?

Sounds like an awesome weekend full of good friends, family and food. Aka: Perfection!

Most of our family lives far away so the only person we see on a regular basis is my mom. A bunch of family is coming down for Eric's graduation in a couple of weekends though and I'm looking forward to spending time with them!

That sounds like an awesome weekend. You are lucky that you live close to so many family members! I have a brother close by but the rest of my immediate family is scattered in other parts of the country. Last weekend I got to see 2 of my 4 siblings and 4 nephews and a niece so that was great!
