MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

Our Memorial Day weekend was a mostly relaxing one, and we have officially kicked off the summer!

Saturday brought a birthday party that had been rescheduled that my girls were dying to attend.  My friend ever so kindly made everything egg-free so that Violet could partake which almost made me cry.

Saturday night took us out to our friend's house with some friends/family.  We always love getting time with W & V's biological half siblings.

On a whim, John decided to camp out with the girls on Saturday night.  He set up the tent in the greenbelt behind our house, and we traipsed out there to get them all ready to sleep.

But, something about walking into the woods in pitch black turned the girls off sleeping out there,😂 and the tent got moved to our back porch.

They had a great time and keep asking to go camping again!  On Sunday, we had plans to hang with people at a pond, but after lunch and naps, the weather got rainy, and plans changed.  Everyone ended up at our house - here's the cookie cake line.

Monday brought more canceled pool plans, but the girls compensated by playing in the rain, and the twins got a nice long nap.

However, when Violet got up from her nap, we realized that she had gotten green marker all over herself.  Apparently a rock that had been colored green had been left in her room.  Parenthood is one delightful surprise after another.

I am so thankful for the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our country, and I don't take that for granted.  It's always good to spend some time reflecting on that on Memorial Day.  Now, we are getting our summer kicked off and hoping to get to the pool sooner rather than later!
