Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Although it is a little chilly today we have enjoyed much time outside! And I'm LOVING it! But let me start with Saturday, I left for the night and met my mom in a town half way between our houses. I had three things on my agenda to do since I was kidless. Try on the new Victoria Secret's Bio 7 way bra, get a new swimsuit and relax in the hot tub! I got to do all three. I didn't buy that bra because I didn't like it, shocking I know. Their bras are weird sometimes and this just happened to be one of them. We jammed in to our visit shopping, eating, talking, dancing and hot tubing. We had many laughter attacks, she is not only my mom but she is one of my best friends! I am also happy to report that I found a new swimsuit! I got home Sunday around 3:30, so we had a good part of the afternoon to spend together. We went a golf place that had playground. J took the two older to hit balls at the driving range and I took the little two to play. It was nice to be outside. I will say that when I came home from my get away I was pleasantly surprised by the new ceiling fan in our bedroom and another project that I had been asking J to do. Our ceiling fan went out last fall and we didn't need it because of the winter but I am glad now that it is warming up to have a new working one! I think I might have to leave more often if I get to come home to improvements to the house. *hink*

Moving on to today. Memorial Day...J drove a squad car in the parade so the three oldest got to ride in the back and wave to all the people. It was so cute to hear all the people they knew during the parade. Maybe next year Peanut will get to go too?! We'll see. I enjoyed being with just her and watching her dance to all the bands that passed us. She is such, little miss personality, I tell you. As soon as the last float passed us the kids were back from making the route. We sat at the beginning of the parade which was the police department, just incase Peanut needed to use the potty. We got home around 10:30 and packed up some gloves, baseball, bat and 3 kites and walked/rode bikes to the big grass field at the end of our street. The kids did great flying kites and Peanut got to hold the kite for the first time today. I think flying kites is one of my favorite things to do with the kids. The joy of their face when they get it up is like no other. I packed up the kites and J played ball with the older ones and Peanut and I walked home to get lunch ready. After the little kid's naps we went to our friends house for dinner and some swimming. It was a great weekend. I know I say this all the time but I am truly blessed. I love my life and my family.
