Pride Rock(s)

This weekend has brought so much pride into our life's and has made me realize yet again how blessed we are. It all started out on Friday when Moroni and I were blessed to be able to go see the Broadway show The Lion King. Which takes place on "Pride Rock."

"Here kitty, kitty."


The theatre. The show was amazing.

It was a fun night, and it did not end until early in the morning. Thank you to my Sis, Bro and his wife for watching our kids. They love their Aunts and Uncles.

The Pride continues Saturday morning as we go to Ellie's soccer game and she scored her second goal TWO WEEKS IN A ROW!! It was AWESOME! I missed last weeks because I was at my dear friend Amy's baby shower. Ellie scored her first goal just for me. So Saturday I asked her if she could score another one for me, so I could see it. It was the last minute of the game, she ran it down, and SCORED!! Pure PRIDE!

Go Ellie!

Saturday night comes and the Pride factor capped out as one of the greatest people in the world to me, the person I wanted to be when I grew up, one of my best friends, and Brother graduated from Marquette Law School. Doug has worked so hard. He has done all of this while having a small growing family , working and every day life stresses. It was such a proud moment to be able to see him earn something he worked so hard for and deserved!

Dougie! An amazing person and brother!! Go Lawyers.

Just the five of us! Me and my amazing siblings. Dave, Marilyn, Doug, Me, and Robert. I know...we are all so good looking:)!!

Little more casual. Yes, Doug and Robert are twins.

My whole growing up years this was my family. Now that I have a family of my own, I look back and I am so grateful for my parents, brothers and sister. Thank you Mom and Dad for raising five(if I do say so myself) great kids!

Doug is truly one of my best friends. I trust him with everything and I know how much I am cared for. He was the perfect older brother and I meant it when I said I wanted to be him when I grew up. Thank you for always being a great family member and a person that didn't judge others. I love that you are a great Dad, husband and to the other four of us...Brother. I love you Doug and I am so PROUD to be your sister!! comes another Lawyer world!!
