Memorial Day Weekend

Even though I came down with a little spring/summer cold this weekend was still super fun and a great kick off to summer ! We did a lot of swimming, playing, eating, and relaxing. All which happen to be some of my favorite things. 

My girls love water and playing in the small and big pools. To the point where Avery gets super mad if we tell her it is time to get out. Tantrum city. Luckily on Sunday the sun was shining and it was warm enough for her to play as much as she wanted. 

We also had a cookout/dog birthday party on Saturday. The pups turned 7 this May and we wanted to recognize that with a party with them as the guests of honor. Puppy cake and games where on the agenda. 

The girls got to have a slumber party with Aunt Sarah and Uncle Mike this weekend too. Not sure they will be welcome back anytime soon since they woke up at 4 am ha. But it was nice to have a date night. 

They were asleep again right after we picked them up and took a car nap for a good 2 hours. Hopefully Aunt Sarah got a nap too. 

Monday we headed out to a local lake and boated and swam. Well the girls swam which meant Daddy had to swim. The water was freezing and it was overcast all day. But they still had a blast. 

Avery skipped her nap so she was out on the drive home. Lily fell asleep not long after and made a smooth transition straight to bed and slept until this morning. Score!  

These are the kind of days I love the most. 

And a BIG thank you to the men and women past and present who make weekends like this possible. Their sacrifice makes me feel safe and sound in this great nation!
