Memorial Day 2018

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!! We certainly did! We had a great weekend and a great week of vacation in Florida last week.

We got back into town early Saturday afternoon and started gearing up for our big Memorial Day party. The kids spent the afternoon playing outside with their friends that they hadn't seen all week since we were in Florida, and Jake and I got the house/pool ready for the party on Monday.

Sunday morning, we went to church and then went to Jake's Aunt and Uncle's Farm house for a Memorial Day get-together there. It was hot, but fun to see everyone and spend time together.

Then Monday, we hosted a backyard pool party for all of our neighbors and a few families from Jackson's school. It was so much fun! We had it catered by a dad from Jackson's school. He made pulled pork sandwiches, macaroni and cheese and baked beans. Everyone brought an appetizer or dessert and it was all SO very yummy!! The party started at noon and we wrapped it up at around 8:00 so it was definitely a hit! The kids had a blast spending the entire day in the pool! Needless to say, they were all very tired and ready for bed by the end.

It was a great weekend and a great Memorial Day party! I hope to share a few posts from our vacation in the next few days, so stay tuned.
