Memorial Day Recap

As I mentioned yesterday, we had a wonderful holiday weekend. To be honest, I was a little worried that having a baby might make things more on the stressful than fun side. Hauling diapers, changes of clothes, bottles etc down to the beach sounded like it could get complicated for a long weekend. I actually had way more fun with a baby around than I can remember! He loves the beach. My parents said I would fall asleep by the time I got down to the beach as a baby, and Weeks is the same way. Most of the time he wanted to snooze with the peaceful ocean sound in the background. We set up a huge tent each day that he could stay under and also give us some shade. 


Thursday night we celebrated a very special anniversary, my parents! We went to a favorite restaurant and indulged in the s'mores for dessert. Roasting s'mores is the best, isn't it?



{Weeks is also in the corner behind me!}


I hope everyone had beautiful weather like we did, especially in spite of the recent tornadoes. I feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful place.


One of our beach days, I could spend every day like this I think...


Sunday, Stephen and my brother gave me a chance to get out with the girls and do lunch and shopping. Good men, right? When I got back to the beach that afternoon, they had bought American flag bandanas. Look at this sweet thing sporting a bandana. I swear I'm a good Mom.


I have a feeling Weeks will cherish this picture when he is older.


Monday, we took Weeks for his maiden voyage on the boat. Babies do not particularly like life jackets, FYI. Just like any kid I know. His is infant and has a huge piece behind his head to support it and it ends up pulling up around his neck and crowding his face. Poor thing did not enjoy it.

  


Of course, we wouldn't have been able to enjoy such a lovely weekend if it weren't for the men and women who serve and protect our country. Thank you to all of you, and especially thinking of you Grandpa! 

I've been working on our birth story...eek! I hope to finally have it ready this week.
Enjoy your Wednesday!
xo.

Ah, such a nice weekend! We are heading down to the beach the first week of July and while I wish I was going with a newborn instead of 36 weeks pregnant, I still cant wait. Love the bandana pic!
