The Adventure Starts Here: Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend

I was very excited to have a 3 day weekend, and at the same time that Chris was getting 5 days of Memorial Day weekend!  Chris golfed in a company golf tournament for charity in Bedminster on Thursday and he golfed with a friend on Friday as well.  He was outside enjoying the amazing weather while I was stuck inside the office working... feeling sorry for me???  Thankfully I got to enjoy the weather the rest of the weekend!

Friday night after I got home from work we went to Chili's for dinner and then to see the movie Bridesmaids.  It was hilarious... great way to start the weekend!  

Saturday morning we got up early and headed down to the pool right when it opened at 10.  It wasn't too sunny yet, but we were glad we got chairs when we did, cause it got packed fast.  

We spent a couple hours there and went up at 2:30 cause we had to get ready to head to Flushing that night.  Last minute Chris got us tickets to the Mets vs. Phillies game on Stubhub.  He was able to get great seats at a really great price and we were in the Champions Club.  We were able to pay for the buffet (only about $20 per person) which gave you all you can eat and sodas for the whole game!  I think we got our money's worth in Diet Coke alone!  But the buffet wasn't enough, we had to go to the Shake Shack!  I had never had Shake Shack so Chris said I had to try their milkshake and burger... wow was it amazing!  I will definitely be going there again!  The game started off great and the Mets were doing well, but the Phillies came back in the end and won :(  

Sunday it was back to the pool.  I was a little worried at first cause it was very cloudy and breezy in the morning, but it got super hot and sunny by the afternoon.  Another great day at the pool!  Sunday evening we headed over to my parents' house for a Sunday Dinner.  My mom was excited because this is the first Sunday in a while that she was home and not driving up to Rhode Island.  When Chris and I got married she hoped to have Sunday dinners with us (just like she had with her parents), but when she started babysitting Kaitlyn and Matthew every Monday, that went out the window.  Now she'll be watching them on Tuesdays, so we can start that tradition :)

On Memorial Day we went to the pool in the morning and early afternoon.  It was so hot out that we had our fill of the pool by 3 oclock and just spent the rest of the day getting ready for the week.   We loved having a few days off, but not looking forward to going back to work :(
