Our Memorial Day Weekend was so, so great you guys. As I’m sitting here and looking through pictures and thinking back to how amazing it was my heart is pretty darn full at how special and fun our weekend was. We got to spend a lot of time together just as our family of three and also with Wild Man’s family. Also, life was a little extra special because for whatever reason I didn’t feel nearly as sick as I have been this weekend!
Wild Man’s brother and his family camped up the canyon and we popped up there to visit and have dinner quite often. It was a lot of fun and H was obsessed with running around with his cousins and throwing rocks and sticks into the creek. We got dirty and stinky and if you ask me, thats the sign of a good time up in the mountains! We also spent a day with Wild Man’s brother and family at our local Reservoir which was awesome. Again, H loved hanging out with his cousins. I thought the water was beyond freezing cold and it was kind of unbearable (maybe I’m just a baby) but H didn’t seem to mind it at all and would wade knee deep with no hesitation. He was also a big fan of playing in the dirt/sand. I am loving this phase of life and watching him be more independent, curious and explore so much. He’s the best.
On Memorial Day the three of us swam at my parents pool just by ourselves for hours and hours. It was so much fun and our day was so special and bonding. We were out at the pool pretty much all day and every second was great. H loves floating by himself (with the assistance of his lifejacket, of course) and going down the slide and just hanging out with his parents.
It was a fun weekend of play, but I also wanted to express my gratitude for the people who have made it so I can have this special time with my family. I am so thankful for the brave people past and present who have fought for my freedoms – some even giving their lives for the betterment of our country. What a great life they have so selflessly created for all of us!
Hope you all had a happy Memorial Day!
