Family Fun in Ohio

 The last weekend of June was sooo much fun! Joe took some much needed time off from work, and we traveled to Ohio to spend some time with family. Joe's sister, Carol, and her husband, Paul, made sure we had a relaxing and very enjoyable weekend! It was a treat to also see Joe's dad and sister, Jackie, as they were visiting, too. We spent the majority of the weekend enjoying their pool ~ of which I am quite envious!
Andrew was quite the swimmer ~ he was putting his face in the water, even swimming on his back! I love that Lauren was able to convince him to swim to her. It was so exciting!
Lauren and Jonathan practically live in the water all summer long ~ they love it!

My favorite part of the weekend was meeting sweet Olivia Ann ~ Carol and Paul's first granddaughter. She is such a sweet baby ~ Jimmy and Katie are so blessed!
She is just sooo beautiful! I love, love, love the bow!
We all took turns holding her, and she never woke up ~ she just snuggled right up next to us, with her tiny arm close to her face. My heart just melted watching Joe love on her.
Lauren enjoyed the sweet baby cuddles.

One morning we took a ride over to Blacklick Woods Park and Nature Center. We all loved watching the animals ~ the deer, a woodpecker, and an albino squirrel were among our favorites. We also took a walk on the nature trail.

Andrew's favorite part of the weekend was playing with all the animals ~ they have two dogs and two cats ~ he absolutely loved them ~ especially Po Bear.
And... a weekend with Aunt Carol would not be complete unless we played a few games! She taught us how to play "Nutsy", and it is now one of our favorite card games! 
I just love this photo ~ three generations of Zavaglias ~ such a blessing!
Carol and Paul ~ thank you soooo much for such a wonderful weekend! Meghan ~ we sure did miss seeing you, but we are so happy you enjoyed theater camp!
