A Weekend with my Family

This past weekend my family gathered at my parents' house to celebrate my sister Lauren's birthday.  It was a quick trip for us, but it was so fun to be all together!  If there's one thing you need to know about my family, it's that we love to eat. Lauren chose an amazing menu for her birthday dinner Saturday night, and I think I gained a few pounds from all the food I consumed throughout the weekend.  On Sunday it started snowing!  It was really fun to see a little snow for the first time this winter, but it made for a long (and tense) drive home.  Here are some pictures from our weekend!

What did you do this past weekend?
