Memorial Day Weekend

We enjoyed a 3 day weekend with lots of family time. Saturday after breakfast we hung out around the house for a bit and then headed to the park with a picnic lunch. We thought Lainey would love the splash pad but she didn't even want to go in. So the girls played on the playground for a while, then we ate our lunches and headed back home.

That evening I went to see a sweet girl's high school graduation. I was her small group leader 6th-8th grade and she has also been our babysitter for the past couple of years. We are very proud of the young lady she has grown to be and are so sad she will be moving away in the fall! I should have taken a pic at the graduation. Oops.

Sunday we went to church and then mostly hung out at home. Later that evening I went to another graduation of a sweet girl I also had in my small group years ago. It was a special time to celebrate all that she has accomplished.

Monday we went with our friends to their neighborhood pool. It was overcast and the water was a little chilly but Cambry was loving it. Again, we were shocked that Lainey did not want to get in. She loved sitting on the edge and playing with some toys in the water but if I picked her up over the water she went all "high knees" on me. Maybe it was too cold for her. Hopefully she will enjoy the pool when it gets warmer. Although it's not like we will be going a ton. 3 kids + pool is definitely not something I can handle solo. But anyway, there are always weekends. Colton didn't get in the water either but we didn't really attempt to put him in because of the temp. He did rock his super cute swimsuit loaned out from his buddy, Luke, though.

Thankful for all those brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. Happy Memorial Day!
