Memorial weekend 2013

Our Memorial Day weekend was filled with lots of traditional activities. Saturday Jadyn walked in our town's annual Grubstakes Day parade representing her dance studio. She had a blast!


After the parade, we headed over to the community fair to get Jake signed up for soccer this fall (Jadyn has chosen not to play). The rest of the day was spent doing a lot of running around - Jadyn attended a birthday party, Jake went to the Millers and spent the night and we went to Home Depot and purchased some new palms for the front patio (I finally killed the two we had for the past 3 years).

Sunday we went to a BBQ at Cruz and Tara's. I didn't take any pictures but it was a lot of fun - very relaxing for the adults, lots of good conversation and good food. The kids ran around the whole time and played with the other kids at the party. They were wiped out by the end of the day.

Monday Joe still had to go into work but the kids and I headed down to the Palm Springs Air Museum for their annual flower drop. This is our second consecutive year attending. It's a great way to honor all of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedom.

And so worth the wait!:

Hope everyone else had a nice Memorial Day weekend too! Although a lot of friends are already out of school for the summer, we still have 13 more days and they are filled with end of year activities both during and after school. Oh, and we mustn't forget that a certain little girl is having a birthday this week too!

So neat! I love that they drop carnations! I don't think Nathan will be in soccer this fall either, we are going to try cross country or karate.

So fun! My kids (especially Elijah) would have loved that entire day. You just reminded me there is a really neat Air Force Museum in GA where we are moving, he's going to flip!
