Birthday Wishes!

April 26th is always extra special in the Laurienzo house. We get to celebrate two birthday's! This year we took Vinny to the Depot Waterpark in downtown Minneapolis for his 4th birthday celebration. Although it was snowing outside, you wouldn't know it. It was hot and balmy and full of fun inside!

A future fireman always plays it safe when using fire and candles!

Um, bring on the cake people!

The Depot Waterpark has to have a Train!

Notice Grandma's shirt. How appropriate!

Calli Maskel.....Vinny's friend.

Someone needs a rest!

After a big day at the waterpark, this happy foursome went out for a quiet
adult birthday celebration at Benihana! Mmm Mmm. Good. Overall, it was a great birthday for Vinny and Carolyn!

JoAnne's Baby Shower

We all crossed our fingers that Jo Anne would not go into labor until after her baby shower, and thankfully, we met that goal! We had a beautiful baby shower filled with food, family and friends! A big thank you to Marie and Nancee for all of their hard work and contributions. My job was easy with those two around! Not to mention all the other Vertin sisters and my mother.......... Jo and Bob should be good to go with all their new baby gifts..... Congratulations to Jo Anne and Bob! May you have a beautiful, healthy baby girl!
