not only was it my dad's 50th birthday, it was also my grandparents 50th anniversary! they got married in the afternoon and shortly after my dad was born! they were 16 and 17 then. i think it's amazing that they are 66 and 67 and have been married for 50 YEARS! :) i love them so very much. my grandma and i email and text at least once a week, pretty awesome if you ask me! :)
the only pic i have from yesterday. my dad with his two grand babies....
dominic was being shy and cullen was just about to turn his head.
pretty good pic for having two small children ;)
cullen wore his "grandpa's little helper" shirt for bumpa's bday.
bumpa is what dominic calls my dad, it was how he said grandpa when he started talking and it has stuck, that's what i think culley will call him too :)
also, i think it's funny how cullen looks to be about the same size as dom and he is 4.
anywho....we all hung out and enjoyed our delicious lunch. after lunch we were all in food coma's ;) rob (my brother) and gina left to go check out a little wedding chapel, as they have been talking about wanting to get married after being engaged for over 5 years. i sat at the table and chatted with my mom while culley slept in my her arms, my sis fell asleep, b and my sis's bf were watching football and really getting into it ;), my dad and dominic were outside playing. cullen slept for about an hour and we decided to leave when he woke up. billy loaded him in the car and as he was doing so my brother and gina pulled up. i asked them what they found out about their wedding plans and my brother threw his hand up and said "we just got married"! wait a second, you did what?!? then they told us the short story ;) it was all of 3 minutes. papers signed and it's official! we congratulated them and went on our way.
they have been engaged for over 5 years and baby number 2 is due in march! they are having a boy, holden! dominic is 4 now! i know we all say it and think it too often, time goes SOOOO quick! i'm so glad cullen has cousins to grow up with. i'm still close to some of my cousins and i grew up with them, we always spent a lot of time together.
my family along with gina's family will all be going out to celebrate next weekend! i'm happy for them and i know they are happy to finally feel like they are a complete family. they bought their first house together a few months ago and baby holden will be here before they know it and dominic will be going off to kindergarten next year. wow....
p.s. if you haven't already checked out shop cullen's closet be sure to! i will be adding a bunch more clothes today! if you ordered something it is being shipped today :)
