Family Affair

I can't believe I'm just now posting this, it is weeks overdue!  But you see, both times I've prepped this posting and just before I publish, something funny has happened in the blogosphere and the interwebs appear to lose the post!  So, here's to lucky #3 and my fingers are crossed for a successful posting this time around!

Back a few weeks ago, Dear Hubs and I boarded our Delta flight headed for Philly to spend a wonderful weekend with his parents and extended family.  We spent a stormy and cool Saturday with my dear MIL and FIL just catching up and running around town.  But, as luck was on our side, the skies cleared and we had an absolutely gorgeous spring day to enjoy on Sunday! 

To top off the Sunday weather, MIL and FIL were thoughtful enough to plan a little get together with our family and friends to celebrate the upcoming arrival of Baby B.  It was such a nice treat to see all of these wonderful people we love on our quick trip!  I know dear MIL worked tirelessly to get invitations to all the right people and organize the details of the day.  The get together was held at the Joseph Ambler Inn, an old country inn and B&B.  The inn was also the site of Dear Hub's brother's rehearsal dinner a few years back and didn't dissappoint for this event either!  The 52 room B&B is complete with the charm and historic feel of early Americana.

The afternoon was spent enjoying passed appetizers and drinks with good cheer!  Cousins, aunts, uncles and good friends all joined MIL and FIL in celebrating with us!  We had a lovely afternoon and were showered with generous gifts from these wonderful folks.  What a treat this was indeed!
