Our Super Fun Memorial Day Weekend

I'm linking up with Melissa at Bless This Voignier Nest for Weekend Rewind

We had a great Memorial Day Weekend!

♥ Friday night was low key. Jackson and I spent the evening at home. We had been invited to go to dinner with some friends for one of our friend's birthday, but Jackson had a bit of a runny nose and I knew they would be out late, so Jake went and I stayed home with Jackson. I was tired and was perfectly happy to stay home with the baby. :-)

I was able to get some cute pictures of Jackson that night. He pulled up to standing while in his crib and he was pretty proud of himself. Ha.




♥ Then Saturday I had my DSLR camera class at 9:15 in the morning. It was a great class. I feel like I learned a lot and love practicing what I learned.

Then later that day, I took my mom for a pedicure for her Mother's Day present. It was nice and relaxing!

The rest of the evening we just hung out at home. I cleaned the basement and did some things around the house.

♥ Then Sunday we went to church and then went to my parent's house for lunch. After lunch we went home to get our swimming gear because we had planned to go to a splash pad with my sister and her family. On our way home, Jackson fell asleep and it was so cute how he had his hands holding onto the handle of his car-seat, I just had to snap a picture when we got home.

After getting our swimming stuff, we headed to the park. Unfortunately, there was a birthday party, so the splash pad was very crowded. We decided to go to another one that was not to far away, but it wasn't quite what we had in mind. After driving around searching for something fun to do with the kids, we ended up going over to our Pastor and his wife's house to swim in their pool. It was a little chilly when you first got in, but we got used to the water pretty quickly. It was Jackson and Mason's first time swimming. They loved the water!

Later that evening we went to dinner at Chili's with my cousin Travis and his girlfriend Nadine.

♥ Monday, we spent the morning and afternoon at home. Then later that afternoon we went to my Aunt and Uncle's house for BBQ and a little more swimming.

Then that evening my cousin wanted to go fishing, so we all tagged along. We had a fun time watching him catch a fish and playing on the playground with the kids.

By the time we got home last night, we were exhausted!! Now we're back to work today. Boo! 

Hope you all had a great holiday weekend!

Hello!!! I just found you on Stephanie's blog.

I have a 7.5 month baby and a DSLR junkie too. :)

Consider me a new follower. Looking forward to seeing Jackson grow up. (Although, I'm super impressed he's crawling - - Tay is older than him by a week or two and she's not even up on all fours yet!)
