Memorial Weekend 2011

Whew, I know, third post in one day?!  What??!!  Who am I??

I know, it’s a little overwhelming, but I had so much to show you on each post!  This is how I roll I guess…in spurts!  Haha!  But now on to Memorial Day weekend pictures…Sun


We had a great long weekend at our cabin, and while the river is still up a few feet from the flooding, we had a wonderful and RELAXING time.  The weather was hot and humid, just the way you like it at the river, and the kids rarely came inside.  Seriously, from 730am til after dark they only came inside to grab food and the occasional bathroom break.  A GREAT time was had by all!

And this is what our kids do at the cabin, like I said, they never come inside!  This weekend, they built a new fort, since the flood washed away the one from last year.  It’s amazing really, our kids could be on Survivor for sure!  Impressive, kids!

Success!  We had to almost literally DRAG them inside later that night!:IMG_2664


I love how much our kids love to play outside.  I love how they don’t depend on cell phones, video games, and television to have a good time.  Yes, they like these things but they certainly have just as much fun spending the day outside and playing!  And can I just say that I also love how much the 15-year olds still “play” outside?!  Hailey wasn’t there for these pictures, but she and Tyler enjoy playing outside just as much as the younger ones…that’s awesome.  Reminds me of when they were little, and how a part of them still is. Smile 

I cherish these moments so much.  Many memories made.

Ok, so I THINK I’m caught up on posts for now!  But before I go, I wanted to share with you my new favorite shirt, with a GREAT MESSAGE:

I'm glad you're all caught up now. I've been checking daily. I wish I could be here next week for the Race. Hopefully it will be a little cooler on Saturday. Love you and hope to see you!
