I am so thankful to live in the great USA where we are FREE!! And I am so thankful to all the men and women who have sacrificed EVERYTHING so we can continue to enjoy that freedom!
May we never take their sacrifice for granted!
We truly enjoyed every second of our extra long weekend! It was filled with delicious cookouts, fun at the pool, and loads of family time!
We are officially READY FOR SUMMER!!!!!
Corban has one more week of school left, and then we can really party!!!
Sunday evening, we met our sweet neighbors down in the cul-de-sac for a fun summer cookout! Everyone brought their own meat to grill and then also a dish to share.
The kids had a blast and really enjoyed hanging out with their friends!
These two totally crack me up! This is Sophie's sweet friend, Elise.
Both of these girls are so spunky and full of personality! On a street full of boys, these two can hold their own!!
Monday, we spent the day pool side! Shane and I had taken the big boys for a swim a few times earlier in the week, but Monday was the first time the babies were at the pool since last summer. We wondered how long it would take for them to get acclimated to the water again, but I'm happy to report that there was NO hesitation at all! They both jumped in and started swimming like little fish! AND, this is the first year, in a very long time, that Shane and I could sit on the edge of the pool and watch them play. Last year, the babies were just learning to walk, so we had to hover over them as they played. This year will be a little easier for me at the pool and I'm grateful;)
Monday evening, we headed over to my parents house for a cookout with my family!
Of course, Miss Sophie couldn't wait to get her hands on sweet Brooklyn.
Unfortunately, Brooklyn is getting a little too big for Sophie to hold on her lap now, so they have to sit side by side on the couch!
How cute are these two?
Sophie and Jake waiting patiently for their dinner!
My sweet Riley!
I love his sun-kissed cheeks!
And Corban with his "big-boy-grin"
What's a party without a little "corn-hole'!?!?
And of course the evening wasn't complete with out some more POOL-TIME!
GREAT jump Ri!!!
After such a FANTASTIC weekend, all I can say is...BRING ON SUMMER!!!!
