Memorial Day Weekend

What a fun weekend. I love it when Chris has a Monday off. It is so fun to have him home and the kids love it. It makes the week go by so quickly. We went to my brother and sister-in-laws apartment and had a cookout with them and some of our other good friends. It is fun when we get together because we just laugh our heads off. There were six adults and five kids ages 6 and under. The kids had fun playing outside on the deck of the apartment while the dads and uncle stood at the bottom and threw tennis balls at them. Believe it or not everyone had fun. It was nice for me because my sister-in-law, my friend and myself sat inside and talked...with no kids...does not happen very often.

We also had a garage sale this past weekend. I am so glad it is over, although a little extra money is nice to do some fun things with. The kids always dread a garage sale because that means that some of their stuff will be gotten rid of. This one was no exception. We told them that if they had happy hearts and would help then Monday we would go to Toys R' Us and get them a new toy. They did great.

They remembered and we went as we said we would. The boys got Nerf dart guns and Kaibryn got a "puppy tree house" thing. Well tonight (the kids had an early bath after playing in the sand and water) they played inside. They ran around the house (they...including Chris) shooting each other. As they were shooting each other Kaibryn asked if I would help her get something out of her room. She got a "princess" outfit and crown and put it on. She was the princess...Chris was protecting her...the boys were trying to capture her. It is so funny the differences between boys and girls. They had a great time. Chris is such a good dad. I think he might have had more fun than the kids.

Well, hope everyone has a great week. Talk to you soon.

Aren't holidays the best? We had a great day, too. So nice to just take a break from the daily work. Speaking of, I need to get to it!
Happy Wednesday, Friend!
