Memorial Day Fun

We had a very busy weekend last weekend.  Saturday we woke up and helped Eric's mom move out of a storage unit his dad had.  It was his 2nd car workspace, as half of their garage houses the Cobra that is now Eric's brother Greg's.  We inherited a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air.  It's beautiful!  We got it started Tuesday night without having to jump it and took the kids for a QUICK ride around the block.  It doesn't have seat belts, so we have to stay close to home!  I'll try to get a picture to include before this auto posts! 

We then spent the rest of Saturday with Eric's family.  His aunt, uncle, MeeMee, cousin and her little man came up from Corpus, so we visited, swam and went to dinner.  It was some good family time.  Of course, my camera found it's way to stay at home!  I have to get better at remembering it! 

Sunday morning we gto up and attended worship, taught our 3 year olds and went to our ABF (Outfitters).  We are so blessed to be a part of KBC, what an awesome group of believers we 'do life' with! 

We went back to Eric's mom's house and had lunch and visited a little while longer.  Once the kids showed it was (past) naptime, we headed to my parent's house.  We had dinner with Mom, Darrell, Bailey, Matt, Shawna and Sterling (her boyfriend), and Kristal, Tommy, Hailee and Glenda.  We swam and ate a yummy dinner made by my mom.  It was very relaxing!  We don't get to do that often enough, we only all wish Jack could have been home with us!!  He was definitely missed! 

Monday morning we woke up and tried to keep the kids out of the pool as we had some old friends coming over at 10.  They wouldn't let us, so we finally gave in and the swimming began again.  We blew up last year's little pool/slide thing, that had too many holes to count in it (thanks Eric and Mom for patching those!) and Micah enjoyed that, though the water was COLD! 

Silly Girl:

My friends Kendra and Trayce, and their kids and hubs came over to swim.  It was a lot of fun!!  Cara (though we put floaties on her because there were so many people in the pool) was much improved from last summer, when she could barely stay up in floaties!  This year she's all over the pool. 

Micah liked it, he really likes daddy pretending to throw him.  As soon as Eric would get him, Micah would say, "READY!!" and the countdown would begin!  Here are a few more pictures of our day.

Micah ate about half a watermelon by himself.  He was sucking the juice out of the rind, it was hilarious!! 

Sweet, sticky kisses for Yaya.

Cara and her silly pose again:

Posing, waiting for the sunscreen to dry!

And again with the silly hat! :)

We are so thankful to our military for giving us the freedom to live in this country!  All veterans, including Eric's dad, are prayed for and much appreciated, and we cannot forget to remember those who gave the ultimate price for our freedom!!
