We had a wonderful Memorial weekend. We are really sad that it is already over and that Robert has to go back to work tomorrow. We tried to pack as much fun as humanly possible into the weekend, and i think we did! We took a lot of pictures this weekend so hopefully you enjoy the play by play of our weekend, it was a great one.
On Friday night we headed to the Hot Air Balloon Invitational that our city was hosting this year. It was really neat to see all the hot air balloons so up close. Jake was in balloon heaven, he loved it and waved to every one of them as they took off into the air.
On Saturday night we went to see the balloons again but we got a little closer this time. We camped out for a bit right in front of where they were blowing them up. It was neat, they are so big.
Jake was in awe, and again waved at each of them as they took off.
The Wonder Bread Balloon
Every morning they had a early morning flight and we were awakened to Cody throwing open our bedroom door and yelling "The balloons are right outside, come see, come see!!"
We got a new pool for the boys and maybe us too;) We can't keep Cody out of it, he loves it and asked me today if he could sleep in it....i said no. I think it's a bit intimidating to Jake so he doesn't get in unless we are with him which is just fine by me.
He's got it rough doesn't he!
Ahh, that feels good on a hot afternoon.
We also did a fair amount of just relaxing in our new Adirondack chairs, we got wood ones and the boys got cute plastic ones.
We grilled all weekend, no ovens allowed! I love the warm weather and grilling as much as possible. We even made pizza on the grill, if you have never tried it you should, they were yummy!!
And of course we roasted marshmallows and made smores, we love our smores!!
Jake even roasted his first marshmallow, well more like charred it, he's such a goofball.
It was a perfect weekend, they only thing that would make it better is one more day!!
