Coming off of a holiday weekend is always just a little bit tougher, if you ask me. But hey, here we are, so we might as well make the most if it, right?
So did you all have a fabulous holiday weekend? We didn’t do all that much in terms of being festive (I was reminded of this as we were out to dinner and noticed all of the kids around wearing cute little red, white, and blue outfits…which we were not…oops), but we did have some fun! And because it’s a little bit later as I’m getting to typing this, I’m going to keep things simple with one sentence per picture.
He loved the diving board enough to bounce on, but isn’t quite ready to jump off of it yet…which is fiiiiine by me.
Not exactly the way I planned to start off my Friday morning…thank goodness Jay was in a car just behind me AND for the nice state trooper who stopped by to help us change the tire.
We got to check out the house on Friday and they’re going to start painting this week…eeeek!
Made Kristen’s sangria and it was absolutely as good as she says.
Fresh bagels with peanut butter and bananas is never a bad way to start off a day.
Little poppers fireworks (I’m sure they have a formal name…which I’m not sure of) are apparently a riot to toddlers.
We always order a meal for Lucas that we’ll like too, since it’s a 50/50 shot on whether or not he’ll ever eat it…we ate about half of it.
We had a craving for Dinosaur BBQ and it tasted awesome, but man it just did not settle well. Blech.
Running around on the playground is a great way to blow off steam after we made him sit out at dinner with us.
I’m still waiting for the family selfie (is that an oxymoron?) where Lucas actually decides to smile.
I love Lucas’s face in this picture, but I’m jealous of how tan Jay looks in it too.
Does swinging on swings ever get old? I don’t think it does.
Mannnn, I have missed this lady…Sarah and I have a long overdue dinner date on the agenda hopefully soon!
Strawberry beer sounds super interesting/iffy, but it tastes quite delicious.
I conveniently forgot my bathing suit at home so dad had to go in the lake with Lucas.
The boys in Saratoga Lake! Oh, and I think Lucas forgot how to use his neck with that life vest on.
First ride on the jet ski and he loved it!
One of my favorite things about holiday weekends? BBQ food, of course!
I wouldn’t be surprised if I’m one of the only posts you read today that actually doesn’t have a picture of fireworks, but to be honest, they’re just not my thing. We had a HUGE display of them a couple of houses down, so we watched out of the corner of our eye while we “festively” watched a couple episodes of House of Cards. Hey, what can I say? I choose HOC over fireworks! But even without the fireworks, it was a really nice weekend with lots of fun spent with family.
Hope you all had a great weekend, too!
