My in-laws live in MD, and we had a very important reason for travelling there last weekend - Phil's dad became a Deacon! The Ordination was on Saturday at the Cathedral, and it was very beautiful. I believe there were 12 permanent Deacons being ordained that day. After the Mass, all the grandkids started calling him "Deacon Gramps", although one of my nephews couldn't articulate it clearly and called him "Bacon Gramps" - ha!
We had a cookout on Sunday, complete with s'mores around the fire. My in-laws have a huge backyard and it was in the 80's, so we were outside almost the whole weekend! Our kids got to play with their cousins they hardly ever see, so they were in Heaven.
We had a nice time, the kids were soooooo good in the car on Fri and Mon, and we're headed back down in about 3 weeks while our house is being painted.
