Memorial Day Weekend 2016

Before I begin, I want to take a moment and thank those who selflessly gave themselves for our country.

Our weekend was fantastic! How was yours? Here’s a look into mine!


Aaron was off so we had lots of fun hanging around the house. We played in the water, swung on the swing, and played around in the walker on the deck. It was a gorgeous night!

My mom’s family owns a cottage at Conneaut Lake, and they’ve been working hard on updating it over the last few years. I went up once last year but this was my first time this year. We headed up around 8:45 and got there around 10:30. It was already a scorcher, and with no air in the cottage, it was toasty everywhere! Jenn brought Madison up, too, which was so fun! I love seeing Madison with Annabelle! We hung out at the beach before we were interrupted with a storm, but then relaxed by the fire pit at the house. After dinner, we made our way over to Conneaut Lake Park. We headed home from the park and Annabelle crashed hard! Photo May 28, 1 51 27 PM

It was another warm start to the day, making it perfect to be outside all day long! After Annabelle’s afternoon nap, we had a Memorial Day Party to go to for our friends out in Lawrenceville, then my cousin Chris’ graduation party. Fun fact, there are 25 grandchildren on my dad’s side (not  including 20+ great grandchildren) and Chris was the last of the grandchildren to graduate high school! Everyone’s getting so old.

We had a blast with all the family and friends for the weekend! Today our boat is going in the water, though with all the rain and storms we can’t even go out in it Sad smile Hopefully next weekend!! We’re also hoping to do some grilling today!

What are you up to today?
