Declan and PopPop resting

Aunt Susan Holm drove up from Virginia Beach to see Declan and Dana for the weekend. We stayed at Mom Mom and Pop Pop Mannion's Saturday night and on Sunday morning we all went to Chanticleer. It is an old estate that they do beautiful landscaping and is a good mile and a half walk around. There are adirondack chairs scattered throughout the park... all painted different colors and with different designs. Declan prefers the little bridges and the ponds that have turtles, Koi, and catfish.

Dana's Baptism

Dana Leigh was baptised January 25th at The Lutheran Church of the Holy Communion in Philadelphia, PA. Grammy and Grampy Isakson flew out to meet Dana and play with Declan for a week, and so we also had her baptism at this time. Dana's godparents are Missi Mannion and Tim Murphy, Jr. It was nice to have so many celebrate at the church with us! After the service, we had a party at Aunt Jill and Uncle Greg's house. This is the party house for most Mannion family events. With a few friends and a whole lot of family, MMs tally was 86 people!

Grammy and Grampy's Visit

Grammie and Grampie Isakson flew in for a week! We had such a wonderful time showing them Philadelphia! We walked around the neighborhood, went to the Mint, Dave drove my dad into REALLY BAD areas (of course didn't tell me until they were safe again!), visited with Dave's side of the family, and saw some great Lightsaber(or as Declan would say Sightraider) fights! It was so nice to have my family visit. I am so happy they were here to meet Dana, and celebrate her Baptism with us! We were so sad to see them leave and can't wait for Grammie and Grampie to come back!
