Wishing You a Happy Birthday {and Easter pics!}

Happy Tuesday, I'm back with a card for the CASE this Sketch and Runway Inspired combined challenge.  I love playing along with both of these challenges...so cool that they are hosting a combo challenge.

I'll have more Easter pictures to share tomorrow too...today I'm popping in to share pictures from my brunch at my mum's house.  It was beautiful and we all enjoyed being outside after we had a fabulous brunch.

Here's my whole gang...thanks to my sister-in-law Cindy for snapping this picture.  You can see how fast everyone is growing.  One quick picture and we were all smiling and had our eyes open.  It looks like Ryan is taller than Pat in this one, but he's not...must be the angle of the photo.

Here's the whole family on my mum's back deck. Thankful for my mum's neighbor who popped over to take this.  Super thankful that Pat's parents were at brunch too and in the picture.  Very thankful that everyone is healthy after Pat's dad's quadruple bypass this past September.

And here's a few pictures showing how much everyone enjoyed the absolutely perfect day.

    I love your photos. I think it won't be long before you are the shortest in your family. Those boys are growing fast! ;-)

  3. Oh wow, what a fabulous weekend you've had full of family! Love the card - that dp is edgy and trendy and a perfect contrast to the more traditional flowers and perfectly captures the feeling of the inspiration photo!
