My Day

Yesterday was one of the best days I have had in a long time. It didn't start off that way, but in the end it was great. Here is how it went...

So I was expecting total family drama at my Grandpa's funeral yesterday. Well it didn't happen. We arrived at the funeral site and everybody hugged and cried. It was nice to see some emotion out of these people. The funeral was lovely- very patriotic and honorable. They really do it up when you are a veteran. Then we headed back to my Uncle's house where I hung out with all 8 of my cousins. We are all so different now, but it was nice to catch up. Julia was also the best little girl yesterday so it made the day so much better.

After I left my Uncle's house, Jon stayed home with Julia and I went with my parents and my brother to the casino over by my house. This was a rare outing since my parents have been divorced for 6 years and never speak to each other. We had such a good time! My dad taught me the ways of blackjack and I turned $20 into $150! We also all ate dinner together which was nice. It was just nice to be a family again even if it was only for a few hours. I cried when I was driving home because it reminded me of the good times we used to have.

When I came home from the casino, Jon had told me that my SIL was having a c-section. So last night at 8:23 pm my niece was born. Isabella Archer Peterson!!! I was so happy! It just really capped off a wonderful day! When I get some pictures I will post them.

So that was my day. I hope you all had a good one too. Thanks for reading!
