Memorial Day Weekend 2017

Well, hello there friends! How is everyone? Today I am sharing our fun filled weekend. I will be back with a few life updates and excitement later this week. I hope everyone made the most of the holiday weekend and soaked up every minute of extra time with friends and family. Just so thankful for the individuals that gave their lives for out freedom and the individuals that continue to serve our country.

Our weekend was spent enjoying the beautiful North Carolina sunshine and spending time with family and friends. Saturday, Caroline enjoyed her first trip on the lake on my parent's boat. My dad, Caroline and I went out to Falls Lake for a few hours on Saturday afternoon.

Caroline loves the water and it was so neat to see her take in all the sights on the lake. She was happiest when we tied off on the shore and she could explore the water. The lifejacket was her least favorite part. The bulkiness of the life jacket caused her balance to be off and she had a hard time staying upright! Hopefully with a little practice she will get used to it!

On Sunday, we grabbed coffee and went to church as a family. Joe and I are happy to find a church home and are trying our best to make it a Sunday tradition. After church, Caroline took a mid day nap and I got everything packed up to head to the pool!  Caroline woke up around lunchtime and we headed to our friend's pool. We both had a blast cooling off in the water and catching up with friends. Caroline is such a little fish and loved handing out in her float while splashing in the water.

After a few hours, we cleaned up and headed back to our friend's house for a cookout. Everyone enjoyed bratwursts, broccoli salad, pasta salad and watermelon. Caroline spent time chasing their beagle around the kitchen. She is fascinated with dogs and loves doggy kisses. 

We were both quickly worn out after an afternoon in the sun and headed home around 5 for an early dinner and bedtime.

Monday was another great day on the water with my entire family. My parents picked us up around 11 to head out on the lake. We enjoyed exploring around the lake and then anchored off to enjoy some lunch. After a few hours, Caroline was worn out and was able to settle down for a quick nap. She is not one to give cuddles frequently so I savored every minute of her napping on me.

Thanks again to a day out in the sun, early dinner and bedtime was a must. After Caroline was asleep, Joe and I grilled out and enjoyed dinner on the porch.

I hope you all had a great weekend!!
