Memorial Day Weekend Recap

We had a wonderful 4 day weekend.  Chris was off from Friday through Monday, and it was nice to have him home.  Friday, he came to Noah's music class (Wompy's) with us.   Our pool officially opened on Saturday, but it really wasn't warm enough to go.  Saturday evening, we went out to dinner with our friends Becky, Chris, and Owen.  We went to Guerriero's (one of our favorite Italian restaurants who also catered Noah's 1st Birthday Party) for dinner and then stopped Strawberry Fields for frozen yogurt.  I always laugh when we go out with other couples who have kids... we had dinner reservations at 5 pm and were home by 6:45 (we don't mess around)!

On Sunday, Chris' brother Justin came over with Louie and we went out to breakfast.  We went back to the place where we went for Mother's Day.  They specifically cater towards dogs, so we knew we had to take them before we moved!  

^^^ too busy coloring to look at the camera ;)

After Noah's nap, we headed over to Chris' parents' house for a Memorial Day BBQ.  Chris' Great Uncle Bobby, Aunt Judy, and cousin David were there as well as some family friends.   The weather was gorgeous and I'm so glad we got to spend the entire day outside!

^^^ Noah was all about giving out hugs again!

^^^ And he taught us a new way to open a gift!  Thanks Uncle Bobby & Aunt Judy for the flashlight and books!

^^^Noah loved throwing the ball over the deck to Daddy!
^^^ We brought over some yummy watermelon and a fruit tart for dessert.  I think everyone brought a dessert! 

Noah LOVES watermelon!  He ate 3/4 of that container!  But he did make sure to share the last little bit with Daddy :)

The watermelon wasn't enough though, because then he had an ice cream bar and some of my cake!  Needless to say, Noah had a great afternoon!

Monday was another warm and sunny day.  We headed down to the pool at 10 when it opened and spent the morning swimming.  Noah loved playing with these soft balls we got him in Florida as well as swimming around on our backs.  I was so happy that he left his hat on the whole time too!

We came back up for lunch and a two and a half hour nap (!!!), and then went to my parents' house for dinner.  My brother Luke just moved home, so it was nice to see him again.   We played with bubbles, had some ribs and chicken fried rice, and some yummy ice cream bars for dessert.

It was a perfect weekend and I'm so glad we got some really nice weather so we can spend the majority of the time outside.  I have a feeling this will be a really good summer!


  1. Sounds a lot like my weekend!! Ribs, watermelon, and water =) Ahhhh good stuff, good stuff. I think we were a little low on the ice cream though. I think we should have upped our game in that department. Good thing there is all summer to work on it!

  2. Sounds like Noah had a great weekend! Who wouldn't with all those sweets! Lucky boy :) Mason is totally into sharing lately too and likes to give away most of his food rather than eat it. Who can say no though when they are being so sweet?
    Side note, where did you get Noah's pool hat? I've been looking for one!
