We spent the day before Memorial Day with Meo and Omi. We were lucky enough to spend the actual holiday with Auntie Laura! Sadly I dropped the ball on pictures while she was over. We spent the day the traditional way- Pat grilled up some burgers for us and we pigged out. 🙂 Then we played with the kiddos. While they napped Laura and I got some much needed girl time in. I so appreciate Laura’s friendship!

|And to think this kid used to hesitate at slides!|
While we were there we enjoyed one of my favorite parts of summer- picnics. I love to cook, but I also like having a reason to just put together some sandwiches and make it easy.
|I love my boys in their Captain America shirts!|
We are really seeing the girls’ different personalities comes out as they get bigger. Ben always loved being outside. Sammy appears to be following suit. I looked down at her and she was just smiling away outside.
|Loving the park!|
|She caught me looking at her.|
|She perked up when she saw me looking at her!|
The playground is a handicap accessible one, and we were the only ones there. Perfect chance to bring Sammy and Ali onto the equipment for the first time!
|Girls first time playing on the equipment! Kinda 😉|
Ben discovered sand on this trip. Sigh, I am not a fan of sand. Honestly, I think it just glorified dirt. I know kids love it, and I won’t stop Ben (or Pat) from playing in it. But I am not looking forward to future sand clean up in the house. Oh well, you can’t stop a little kid from wanting to dig in the sand.
