Labor Day fun with my IFs!

This past Labor Day weekend we invited my IFs over for a BBQ dinner to meet our kids and to continue to get to know one another. It was warm, and I prepared a Flank steak marinated in Balsamic vinegar, honey, and pepper, a salad and roasted rainbow carrots and beets. My kids stood excitedly at the front window looking out for the guys and started jumping up and down when they saw them walking up the walkway. Hunter opened the front door and hid behind Daddy with a huge smile on his face. We all exchanged hugs and IF1 handed us a huge box of cupcakes they picked up from a bakery near their house in SF. IF2 had 2 bottles of wine and one of them was from a winery near their home.

We all stepped into the back yard and chatted while I waited for the vegetables to finish roasting in the oven, and for my Step Dad to finish with the steaks on the grill. It was a warm evening filled with smells of hot bbq, and laughter as my daughter suddenly realized she was the center of attention and began performing for our guests.

We ate our meal and talked about Wyoming, and city life. We talked about what it's like in Kindergarten and school today as opposed to when they were in school. We laughed and Hunter brought IF1 into his room to show him all of his beanie babies that IF1 gave him at our last night out. Hunter sleeps in them like a nest. We put Emma to sleep and she kissed everyone goodnight. It was so fun to see the guys with my kids. Hunter started playing "telephone" with IF1 using glow in the dark bracelets and we all thought it was super cute.

I am waiting now for my medical appointment in San Diego where I will go down for blood tests and exam to be cleared to begin contracts. I'm so excited!!!!!! Things are getting real. The egg donor is picked and we are ready to bake this adorable little cupcake! hehe.
