What a great Memorial Day!!

We had a busy and great weekend. Saturday, I bought some new cushions for our chairs on the back deck and a new umbrella. Ours broke during one of the many storms we've had the last few years. Then Saturday night we went out to eat pizza with our friends Gina, Bobby, Jack and Emma (Jake's best friend and future wife). Then on Sunday we cooked out hamburgers and hot dogs at our house, just the four of us. Jake really downed his hotdog and loved his corn on the cob. It was so nice sitting out on the deck on the new cushions.

Then today, Memorial Day my parents came over and we cooked out again. Barbeque pork ribs, salad, hashbrown casserole, and homemade strawberry ice cream. It was delicious. It was great to spend time with my mom. She and her two sisters have been very busy staying with my grandmother 2 to 3 nights a week taking care of her and my grandfather. We haven't seen her much lately. My grandmother continues to do better, but still needs someone to help her and my grandfather.

Ben had fun sitting out in the sun on the deck while Jake "cut the bushes" and played in the yard. Look for the video of Jake cutting the bushes soon (hopefully). It is much more fun to see it and hear it on video.

Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend. I know we did!

Mimi and Ben getting patriotic.

I love this pic. I just gave Ben a bath. If you look closely, his hair is wet and sticking straight up.

Getting sleepy on Papa's lap.

Those pics are soooo cute!
My fav is the last one, Ben looks so relaxed. Or as my Emma would say, "he's chill-axin'"
