Memorial Day Weekend

I love Memorial Day weekend!  It's the "official" start to summer, and usually packed with birthday parties and picnics and fun with friends!

The weather didn't really cooperate on Memorial Day, but we had a great weekend!

On Saturday, Lexie and I did some shopping, then our friends came over, and we had tacos and root beer floats.  Dylan ended up spending the night at their house and Grant and I had a relaxing evening after the girls fell asleep. 

On Sunday, we celebrated my great-niece Aubrey's 7th Birthday with a Fiesta!  I absolutely adore Aubrey.  She is the sweetest little girl.  She spends an hour at our house every day after school, and I'm going to be watching her all summer.  Lexie is thrilled!

We had a great time with my crazy family!  Lexie had a sleepover at Aubrey's house, and after our kids were in bed, Grant and I started watching Season 4 of Arrested Development.

The weather on Memorial Day was cool and rainy, so our pool party/picnic was moved indoors.  Grant had a lot of work to catch up on, so he went into the office for a few hours.  As soon as he got home, we drove to our friends' house for the picnic. 

Dylan ran off with the group of boys, so he was barely seen all day.  Lexie took a 3 hour nap thanks to her exhausting birthday party/sleepover the day before.  Lily had a great time running around with her toddler buddies, and, well, eating.  The men disappeared into another room, and us moms sat around the living room and talked.
