Last weekend, Nicolas flew from Chicago to Vegas solo. He stayed with Frank and I for a couple nights, before staying with his grammy until his mom, dad and sister arrived. They would follow later in the week, since they were driving; Amy and Addy in her car, and Jeff behind the wheel of the moving truck. Yes, moving truck. My sister has moved her family back to Nevada. They are living with my mom until school begins. Nick continues to grow by leaps and bounds. He is 100% boy, but he also has the most kind and caring heart. Addison, barely 10 months, is walking and has two teeth. She adores her big brother more than words can convey. When she sees him, she squeals "Niiikkkkeee!" I promise it would melt anyone's heart.
Frank kept his tradition of putting on a fantastic firework display. He, along with Jeff and Mike, happily took Nick under their wing. Our family of pyros continues to grow. Blaine over saw the festivities, while my mom, Amy, Addy and I looked on. Well, until the dogs, and Addy had enough... Then, I remained. But I was far from alone.
