Labor Day Weekend

What a busy weekend/holiday for us! On Friday afternoon the Trautman families came to Baldwin for the weekend, some staying with us and some staying over at Vicky and Paul's. Did we take any pictures while they were here? Nope. Ugh! Troy's usually very camera-ready but we were very busy all weekend! We did see some videos that Paul took of the water balloon antics, though!

Friday night was appetizers next door. When it was time for Lucy to go to bed, she was assisted in her bathtime ritual by cousins Olivia and Kate, who just couldn't get enough of their little girl cousin. Saturday morning a few of us headed 'downtown' to the Hazelnut Tree for coffee. Everyone gathered next door for lunch and the great water balloon launchings (250 balloons!?). In the evening, Troy made a bonfire and we roasted marshmallows and laughed and talked about our 'dream' jobs.

Sunday we all headed to church to hear Paul's sermon on "weiner gravy", followed by a delicious brunch and then the Trautman families departed back to Lake Benton and Eden Prairie. We all napped.

Today (Labor Day) my dad's side of the family (the Duffy's) came over for a late luncheon and lots of paparazzi picture-taking of Lucy. Most hadn't seen her since she came home from the hospital and others were meeting her for the first time. She charmed everyone; it's amazing how much she's grown in the past few months. Here are a couple photos from today:
