The last weekend of February we traveled to South Carolina to help surprise my Aunt Faye for her 70th birthday. My cousin, Stacy, arranged everything and did a fantastic job! As you can tell from her face we succeeded in surprising and pleasing Aunt Faye! :)
Nearly 30 Coyle and LaBar family members traveled from half a dozen states coast to coast to help Aunt Faye celebrate. She's one special lady! Aunt Faye and her daughters, Amber and Stacy
Now we'll back track a bit, I just thought those special birthday pics should start this post :)
Others waited anxiously as well and wondered if Uncle Martin would be able to successfully get Aunt Faye to the restaraunt...
As you saw above, he obviously was successful and we all enjoyed visiting with Aunt Faye during lunch
Kennedy thought she should be able to have the entire cake not just a slice of it for dessert. I keep forgetting how literal little kids are. When you say "Guess what? You may choose anything you want!" You should be prepared for them to do exactly that... lol :) Grammy and Amber convinced Kennedy she didn't really need/want the entire cake. :)
After lunch we headed back to Aunt Faye and Uncle Martin's home to visit for the afternoon/evening
Aunt Faye enjoyed(?) some wild pushes on her swing from her great grand nieces
Then Riley took over and got everyone organized and under control :)
Ari and Reagan - Reagan cracked us up because as soon as she learned Ari was a couple of months older than her she sized her up right away and pointed out that she, Reagan, was taller anyway - what a nut! :)
Aunt Faye and her sister-in-law, Jannette (splg?)
Aunt Faye reading a new book to Reagan and Riley before we left to head for bed
The next morning we enjoyed attending Uncle Martin's Sunday school class with everyone. Kennedy especially enjoyed putting a couple stickers on her face during church...
After church we went out to eat and Kennedy decided Grammy needed a sticker on her nose...
Riley and Reagan enjoyed each other's company just a little bit
Yummy ice cream!!!
Riley checking out Jackson and his paci - So sweet!!! :)
Poor Reagan fell before we left and bumped her nose. At the time we were a little afraid it might be broken but it all turned out fine.
