Memorial Day in Pictures

Our Memorial Days have been the same every year. We always go to Nannie's (Grant's Grandma) house for a picnic. My Great Niece, Aubrey, has a birthday on the 27th, so for the past 3 years, we've gone to her birthday party on Memorial Day, as well.

Of course, I took many pictures to document the day. Me, take too many pictures? Noooooo.

We started out the day celebrating Aubrey's 3rd Birthday. Isn't she the sweetest?
Aubrey is 9 months older than Lexie. They are the only girls in a big group of young boy cousins.
Lexie enjoyed a piece of cake (make that icing) with my mom.
Happy 3rd Birthday, Aubs!!!
We had a great time with my family, at Aubrey's party. I really didn't want to leave. My niece Michelle, and Aubrey, live a few hours away now, so I don't get to see them as much. Lexie had some fun "girl" time with Aubrey, and Dylan ran around with his three cousins. He was there, despite the lack of pictures of him!

Lexie fell asleep on our way to Nannie's picnic. We pitched the Pack and Play in the backyard at Nannie's, and let her sleep. She woke up at 7 (EEEK!) and was in the best mood. She was just so adorable! Dylan spent the afternoon/evening wowing the crowd with his mad baseball skills, and playing other sports and games.

Lexie snuggling with Daddy after she woke up.
Lexie couldn't keep her hands (bad girl!) off Nannie's camaro. Yes, 84 1/2 year old Nannie drives a camaro. And is getting a brand spanking new one.
Uh-oh, did anyone see?

Grant's mom bought the kids some toys to play with. Dylan loved his toy snake!

Dylan and Lexie were absolutely filthy by the end of the day. Here's some proof:

Lexie hung all over her crush (Grant's friend, Jason) all evening, and Dylan befriended Nannie's teenage neighbor, so they were in good hands for the day. Which left me plenty of time to eat my second meal, and hit up the dessert table two...or three...or four times. But who's counting?

It was yet another great Memorial Day. And this time it didn't rain!

Happy Memorial Day!
