memorial day weekend

I know many people have big plans like the river or the beach for Memorial Day, but I couldn't have been happier that we were home and didn't have any plans.  We have been working on painting our deck for what seems like the last month.  Jason replaced some boards and I have been painting whenever I had some free minutes.  I finally finished on Tuesday and it was ready to put furniture on it by Friday.  We have a pretty big deck and no shade, so we bought a gazebo and I LOVE it.  Jason put it together on Saturday and I just love how it all came together.  My parents got new patio furniture so they gave us their old wicker set and now we have lots of seating all over the deck!
Macy likes the new sofa the best.

Our friends came over with their new baby, Sutton on Saturday night.  We got some clothes out for them and Bryce and Emmy had a ball playing dress up with her.  She didn't mind the hat, mittens, socks and slippers one bit.  She is such a sweetie! 

Today after church we went to a friend's 7th birthday party to watch our local baseball team play.  Two helicopters landed on the field before the game and the mascots for the baseball team and VCU got out for the game!

Emmy needed a closer look.

The game was during Emmy's nap time, but she loved being out with all the big kids.

I didn't get a picture of the birthday boy, but I did get the cousins.

Poor Bryce got hit by a foul ball (because Jason wasn't there to catch it and I was a horrible judge as to where the ball was).  The ball bounced down the row some after hitting him and his seat and a little boy brought it to him.  Dave even got Nutzy to sign it for him.  I  think I cried more than Bryce, but he made it.  There wasn't a mark on his arm, so the ball may have actually just hit his sit and scared him, but he was super upset and I was so mad at myself for not protecting him like I should have.

Take a moment this weekend to remember those who have and are serving our country for the freedoms we enjoy each day.  I think of my Poppy everyday, but today especially as I remember his service to our country.

What a weekend! Your new patio loos awesome! (can't wait to try it out ;)

I am glad Bryce was okay, and his smile seems to prove that he weathered the foul ball just fine! It was nice of the other kid to give it to him to keep!

Glad you guys had a great weekend!
