Memorial Day Weekend Wrap-Up

The holiday weekend is over...but it's a party at our house...cause EVERYONE is done with school! Even Andy had his last day on Friday...so summer is HERE! We had a busy full weekend...

Friday: It was Seth's first t-ball game of the season. it was a beautiful evening for a game. He did great..and even got to play 1st base! Grant...he just hung out in his stroller, eating goldfish and drinking water

Saturday: We were back at the ball diamond Saturday morning for game #2. Fortunately, it wasn't too hot yet and Seth had another great game.

After grabbing a quick lunch, we headed down to Portland. We spent some time in remembrance and took flowers to our sweetie Kate (as well as Pampa and Andy's grandparents). I can't believe this is the 3rd year of putting flowers on Kate's tombstone. It's always a hard day. We stuck around for dinner and then Grant, Andy & I came home. Seth stayed with Grandma & Ted.

Sunday: I taught the kindergarten Sunday School class and then we spent the afternoon cleaning. My parents took Grant so Andy and I got a date night! WOO HOO! And...we even had gift certificates for dinner & ice cream which made it even better. I so appreciate dinner without the kids now...I really got to enjoy it!

Monday: I went to Decatur to pick up Seth and then did some cooking. Andy worked hard in the yard and hopefully rabbit proofed our garden. We had a few friends over for a cookout...which turned into a cook-in due to the gobs of rain we got. Although the kids were a little crazy and Grant broke out in a fever, it was still a fun night.

So... a little bit of everything this weekend! Overall a great weekend...except that we got some bad news this morning...Andy's cousin's 21 year old son was killed in a 4 wheeling accident. Prayers for Spencer's family are appreciated... May their lives be filled with peace, especially this week as they celebrate his too short life!
