Memorial Day Weekend!

The official start to summer, Memorial Day Weekend, has come and was a beautiful weekend, and we had a chance to do a whole bunch of fun things!!

We started the weekend by setting up Jacks new tent in the yard...I picked it up VERY cheap last year at the end of the season, and Jack has been so excited to try it out!  We set it up right near his playscape under the huge tree for some shade!  We didn't get a chance to sleep out in it this weekend, but Jack loved going inside to read and play games with Sydney!


Saturday night we went to a BBQ at 'Namies' and 'Bumpas' house!!  We ended up eating inside, because as soon as we lit up the grill it started didn't last more than 15 minutes, but it was enough to have us move everything inside!  After dinner, the kids got a chance to do some sparklers that Daddy brought, and also bubbles that Auntie Amy brought!!  It was so much fun!

This picture is of the kids...check out the boys, they thought they'd look pretty cool with their hands in their pocket!  :)


Sunday, Daddy had to work, so Jack and I decided to head down to Ledyard for a parade!!  We got there nice and early, and got a great spot...nice and shady, right where the parade was starting!  Jack loved the parade this year...especially the marching band!!  He told me that he wants to play the drums and the horn in a parade when he gets older!

When we got home, we set our blanket up outside in the yard for a picnic lunch, then Jack fell asleep for a nice nap.  It was so nice in the shade!  Even Sasha enjoyed laying outside with us...she loves her little buddy Jack!


On Monday, we headed out to another parade in Jewett was a small one, but Jack and his cousins enjoyed it!

After the parade, we headed down to Auntie Scoots house for another BBQ!  Here we are outside on the deck enjoying some BBQ chicken, kielbasa, hotdogs and hamburgers!!

Uncle Rhett and Auntie Kris gave Jack this awesome t-shirt from Uncle Rhetts racing team!!  Jack proudly showed it off in front of Uncle Rhetts Barracuda!

Well, the weekend is over, and we are now back to our regular routine.  What fun can we come up with this week????  Check back soon!


  1. Oh wow, is that your backyard?? I'm green with jealousy...our backyard is as large as our livingroom (which isn't very large)
    Lovely weekend you guys have had!

  2. Yes, that's our yard! I love it here...our next door neighbor is my sister/brother-in-law and they have over 100 acres of land too!

  3. That's really great! The things one can do with such a yard... *sigh*
