Memorial Day 2009

In true TM fashion, I failed to take pictures of our holiday get together with family and friends. I'm holding out for my new camera. Thank goodness for friends who do take pictures! And thank goodness for friends who make yummy snacks!

Suzanne, Joey and Jaxon came over for the afternoon along with my parents and sister and Jen and Casey. We fired up the smoker, got the pool ready for the little boys and had a fun time outside! We had yummy burgers, ribs and hot dogs, and lots of sides and snacks. My stomach is still recovering! It was such a beautiful fun day!

The boys were using the slide as a surfboard and it filled with water and was super heavy. It took teamwork to get it back in the pool to surf on again. Oh and they might have made it 'pee' and got a big kick out of that.

There was just a tiny amount of grass in the pool after the boys were done. It was a great day! Suzanne, thanks for the pics and the cucumber sandwiches.

Zoo Trip

We haven't been to the zoo in forever. Let me rephrase that...I haven't been to the zoo in forever. Zann took Ethan a few weeks ago while I went to garage sales with Suzanne. Yesterday, we met our good friends there and had a great time. Thanks to Leslie I have pictures!

Ethan loved seeing his friends, Luke and Carson. We hadn't seen them since Luke's birthday in January. We even made some new friends which is always fun. There will be more fun zoo days in the weeks ahead!

Road Trip

Just a little non-picture update...
Last Wednesday, Ethan and I loaded up and headed to Ada for a little road trip with my mom and sister. We woke up bright and early on Thursday and headed out to see my mom's parents in Louisiana (about an 8 hour trip). We had a nice visit there and headed to Katy, TX (another 4 hour trip) to see my grandma (dad's mom), aunt and 2 of our cousins. Then, yesterday we headed back to Ada (add about 7 hours to the total travel time) and then this morning I made the short trip back to E-town (total time in the car = around 23 hours). I am so glad to be home. It was nice to see my family though. We had been planning on going to Louisiana for a while now and then my cousin's wedding shower was yesterday so we rolled both trips into one. Ethan was a great traveler and I did okay too! We just had to make a few more potty breaks than usual. Now Ethan is snug as a bug in a rug in his own bed (he slept with me the entire trip and that was not fun) for his nap. I'm going to relax a little with my feet up. Hopefully before long I'll download pics and post those. Hope everyone has a happy Monday.
