A Reunion Kind of Weekend.

by katelin on May 19, 2015

You guys. this past weekend marked our longest travel with Riley and although it was for a good reason I’d really like to never do it again. Babies man. They’re exhausting. In any case, our weekend went a little something like this.

Thursday: Started our day nice and early and made the trek to San Fransisco.¬†Riley was okay for the most part and we only stopped once. Eventually we made it to our friends’ house in San Fransisco and it was so good to see them and their daughter and get in some quality hang out time with the bebes.

The evening was spent eating pizza, drinking wine and catching up and pretending that we weren’t all exhausted. Because really, we were. Parenthood¬†for the win.

Friday: We continued on our journey north to Guerneville, California for Matt’s family’s 80th family reunion (the last one was in 2009, somehow we’ve been married long enough that I got to attend another reunion, crazytown). You guys, it’s so fun to have such a big family. I’m part of a huge family, Matt has a huge family, and whenever any of them get together it’s guaranteed to be a great time.

Saturday: A whole day of familyness! Huzzah. There were walks, time by the docks, I got to wear a sleeping baby, delicious food and even more time with family. I really can’t even sum it up into this post, but I’m just so grateful for the conversations I had, the stories I got to hear and the love that was all around.

I truly am lucky to have married into such a wonderful family.
UntitledThe evening activities involved a group photo, more stories, baby cuddles, a live band and good times all around. We probably pushed our luck keeping Riley up so late, but it was so fun and so worth it.

Sunday: By then Riley was over not being at home. The drive home was rather terrible in that the kiddo barely slept and screamed his head off for the last two hours of the ride. It was traumatizing for all involved.

Needless to say, by the time we got home and got Riley to bed, wine was poured and consumed (surprisingly not straight from the bottle).

All in all it was a great weekend and I can’t wait til Riley is a little bit older to enjoy the awesome big family he’s a part of.


And how was your weekend? Any adventuring? Wine drinking?


happy tuesday!
