Memorial Weekend

What a fun weekend we had. It has been a long time since we have really not had anything planned & we were able to relax a little.

Here are some little snipits of what we did...

FRIDAY NIGHT

My parents got back in from Seattle & they came over for a cookout complete with homemade ice-cream. After they left Chris set up the tent so the kids (& Chris) could "camp out." They had so much fun.

SATURDAY

I got up & ran 4 miles
Went to Target & got some "running clothes". I felt like I was running in flannel pj's it was so hot.
Came home for naps...for EVERYONE
Went to Lowe's to get some mulch & got POURED on.
Made food for Sunday - homemade potato salad & Strawberry swirl cake

SUNDAY

Went to church
Had a cookout at my parents house...steak, chicken, burgers & all the fixin's
Home
Had my brother Michael & sister-in-law Lindsay with baby Jackson & our friends James & Crystal over to watch the basketball
game.
Kids slept in the tent again...which means I did not sleep Sunday night.

MONDAY

I ended up going to sleep around 3:15 (I can't sleep when Chris is not here) & then Kaityn got up at 5:33!!!!!!!!!
Other kids got up at 6
I went for a run
Breakfast
Took kids to a movie
Ate dinner again at my parents b/c I took a nap...remember 2 1/2 hrs. of sleep. I have not been that tired in a long time.

****All during these days there was lots of laughing, playing, jumping on the trampoline, eating. We had a GREAT time just being together with family. It is now Tuesday & WOW do I have alot of laundry to do. Hoping the rain will stay away. The kids today are up, happy & playing. We are so blessed.
