Dinger Shindig (June 2010)

I know this is a lot of pictures, but Marie took at least 150 and this is what I have whittled it down too! Well, after a nice spa week at girls camp I came home to 6 visitors! Auntie Marie, Auntie Michelle, Briana and Lance + Grandma and Grandpa Dinger who graciously watched the amazing duo during camp. Although technically Auntie Michelle, Lance and Briana are Choltkos, I will still call this the "Dinger Shindig". We had one of these fabulous shindigs when Tori was just a little younger than Brooke and then when Tori turned 1. Anyway, you probably don't really care, but I am sure glad the whole famdamily came to visit. 10 people in a 3 bedroom house was a little crazy (especially since we only have one working shower!), but we had a BLAST! As you can see above, we hung out a lot. We sat around and talked and played with the munchkins who both had colds (Brooke with twin ear infections). It was great to see the Choltkos...we don't get to see them all that much, but it was sure fun to catch up. Briana is in college and Lance is in High School! When I met them they were , well, 6 years younger! Ha ha ha!

A shindig must always include an amazing Barbecue or some kind of celebration, and we had both! Jason got a BBQ for Father's day from his parents. So we enjoyed hamburgers and hot dogs for Father's Day dinner. We also celebrated Gwennis' (that would be Gwen and Dennis) birthday. They turned the big 67! Their birthdays are just a few days apart. Anyway, it was a great excuse to have cake! Be proud of me...I finally posted again! Love you all and I am glad that we were able to have some fun together even though we all live far apart. The next shindig will be in OHIO!!! That's right!

I finally got around to reading your posts. Sorry that it took so long, but always remember that I am not a blog stalker and will always make *heartfelt* comments. ;) The following are my thoughts from this post.

1. The picture of Tori with the sunglasses in her hair is adorable! She looks somewhat like a little Diva there. I need that picture.
2. How on earth did you fit 10 people plus one cat in your house. You are insane.
3. When are you going to Ohio?
4. Jason better BBQ some hot dogs for me when I am there.
5. love you
6. See you next month! boo-ya

I forgot one:

7. Nice try trying to trick me into thinking that Cami is a cute and cuddly cat with that picture of her sleeping in Tori's Elmo chair. We all know that cat is evil. :)
