Memorial Day Weekend

Oh how I love long weekends! Why can't we have these every weekend? Three days is just perfect. There is enough time to have fun and even manage to get a little house work done :-)

Friday night we kicked off our weekend by heading over to the Ellison's to test out the bounce house for Braelyn's birthday party. The kids had a blast jumping and sliding. They worked up an appetite quick, so we headed over to Sonic for dinner and some ice cream (Payten's favorite).

Saturday we enjoyed the afternoon with friends at Braelyn's 1st Birthday party. After the party, Payten, Dana, and I headed down to my parents for a "girls" weekend. There was a circus in town so we went to check it out. Payten had a blast with her Mema & Poppy, oh yeah and with Boots and Dora too. :-) She loved all the animals, even Jeffery the giraffe.

After the circus, we had some yummy pizza at a new pizza place in town. It was soo good! Why can't we have a good pizzeria like this by us? It kind of is a good thing that way we don't pack on the pounds!

Sunday we roasted in the HOT Florida sun at the beach. The Gulf of Mexico was soo warm, so that is where we spent most of our day. Doesn't get any better then that!

So glad we got to spend the weekend with great family and friends! Looking forward to another weekend like that soon! Now on to our busy week.... Happy Tuesday!
