Carrying on


It's been quite a week so far.

I think I've gotten to bed before 3am, zero times since I have arrived in Gulf Shores.

(That's 3am Central Time)

Last night I was finally asleep by about 4:30am.

At that early hour I could have just stayed awake to watch the sunrise!

Steve and I managed to get out photo taken together. 

That's Steve's Dad peeking over the top - what a goof ball :)

Here is a photo of most of the family.  I think this is the only time we've used this family room in this house, but that's because on the floor above, that's where the kitchen, dining room and another family room are located.  This room had a DVD player though and someone brought a DVD with family photos.  So this was indeed a group event.

The Palmisano Family reunion shirts were passed out.  I'm so excited, I got one, too :)

and later, Steve made Cosmos in the giant pretzel container and pretended to drink it all himself.  I never did ask the other person in the photo if I could post this picture, so I'm going to leave off his name and ask permission.  

Steve made Cosmos one night, margaritas the next and I'm not sure the next two nights.  I'm not a drinker anymore so I just took pictures of the evening :)  and had a good laugh with everyone.

I'm loving this week with my friend's family.  They're already planning next years reunion and I'm trying to figure out how to get myself adopted into the family, officially.  That way I'll never miss an invitation!

I have so much more to tell but I'm so tired.  I'll have to try to get some more posted tomorrow before I go over to their house.  

Hope your week is going as wonderfully as mine.

Looks like you are having a great time with Steve! You are so lucky! You have adopted family everywhere! lol Hope you're having a great day!

For sure! You are definitely having a great time. I guess I could get over rising at 5:30 AM if I went to bed at 3:00!

But then I'd have to nap all day long, so that wouldn't work too well.

Have a ball, with all these fun people!
