Memorial Day Weekend

We had such a wonderful, long weekend! The way my work schedule is laid out, I was able to have five days in a row off. I really enjoyed my extended break from work to spend with my family.

Our Memorial Day weekend began early Friday afternoon. Jeff was able to leave the office a little early so we decided to head to one of our community parks and enjoy the outdoors.

We walked around the beautiful lake.

Fed the baby ducks and geese.

And created a few new Summer memories as a family.

On Saturday, we hung around the house. Jeff mulched the yard while I straightened up the house and did 85 loads of laundry. It was so nice to hang around the house and get a few things done. I loved not having any plans. It was nice to have the day for just the 3 of us!

Jillian practicing her tummy time while Mommy worked around the house.

All of Jeff's hard work, the yard looked amazing!

On Sunday, family and friends came over our house for a BBQ. The thunder storms delayed our lunch, but didn't dampened our spirits. It was great for everyone to get together on such a blessed Memorial Day. Later that evening we had a blast at the block party in our cul-de-sac.

What block party is not complete without a bounce house? I wish Jillian would have been old enough to enjoy it! Maybe in a few years.

We had such a fun and exciting weekend! I was so thankful to have Tuesday off too just to unwind and catch my breath! I hope everyone had a great weekend!!! Enjoy your shortened work week!
