A few days after returning from NYC Fred's brother Bob, his wife Megan & their two adorable little boys Robert & Mason came home for a visit. They live near St. Louis so dont make it home very often. This was actually only our second time meeting Robert & our 1st time meeting baby Mason.

We all went camping together for the weekend & had a ton of fun. We had a awesome campsite right on the pond. Great for fishing, but not as great for sleeping w/ the bull frogs! Bob, Megan & Robert (baby Mason stayed w/ grandma) rented a cabin that was right next to our site which was great.

Ethan showed Robert how he can fish. & Aunt Megan caught her 1st fish! She was very excited!
Saturday we all went to the beach, which was about a mile down the road from the raod from the campground, for the families annual gathering. Family came from all over, Bob & Megan from St. Louis, The Knox family from Pennsylvania, Aunt Gigi from Florida, Uncle Sam from NYC, and the reat of us didnt have to travel more than 45 min.
All of the Servello family. Grandpa with his wife, children, grandchildren, & great grandchildren!
All of the Weissers.
And just our family!
Collin LOVES the water!
We celebrated both Bob & Robert's birthdays. Since Robert is a HUGE Cookie Monster fan, I attempted to make him a cookie monster cake. We ended up having to cut the party short, because the park attendents worned us of a sevear thunderstorm heading our way. We all packed up quick & we went back to the campground. Fred's Uncle Sam joined us camping for the night. Everyone took naps & relaxed during the storm, which didnt end up being all that bad. We enjoyed a nice dinner & campfire together.
This trip ended our vacation. We had a great week between NYC & camping.
I can't even believe our lil boy is already 4 years old! Seems like just yesterday that he was born! We've been through so many ups & downs since I was pregnant with him. But every moment with him here has been wonderful! He is such an amazing lil boy! I have always said "he may be small but he has a personality larger than life!'' & if you've ever met him you would agree! He enters a room & everyone knows it! And if it wasn't for him we wouldn't have so many new wonderful friends in our lives!
Here are some special pics I wanted to share.
