Memorial Day Weekend 2016

I hope you all had a nice Memorial Day weekend; we sure did!

This weekend, we spent a lot of time outside!

The big event of the weekend was the Memorial Day picnic / graduation party for Nick! The picnic was at Nick's mom's house which was absolutely perfect! They have so much room for Piper to run around there. She partied with us from 1 p.m. - 6 p.m and she was a really good girl!

This weekend (and all of last week) felt like a true vacation! I love it when life feels like vacation. It's been happening a lot, lately.

All it takes is an afternoon at the lake or even an evening outside in our backyard for it to feel like we're on vacation. The weather has been incredible lately!

Along with playing and relaxing outside, my husband and I have been getting some more yard work done, too. Having our yard work done makes it much more relaxing when we do get the chance to sit back and take it all in; which is as often as possible!

Piper loves to be outside so we're in our backyard a lot right now. No complaints here!

We have a lot of flowers in bloom right now and I'm loving it!

This weekend, we found the joy in outdoor bath time. Piper had so much fun, she sat in her blow-up duckie for a good 45 minutes. It think the outdoor bath time is going to be something we'll do often this summer!

We spent a good amount of time visiting with family this weekend. Piper loved all the attention and we loved sharing our joy with them. Piper makes us all so happy.

We woke up early yesterday to go to the Memorial Day parade on my mom's street. Piper loved watching the parade go by.

All in all, it was an amazing weekend!

My family and I ended this Memorial Day weekend with a peaceful night together, in our backyard. On Memorial Day, and every day, our hearts are full of thanks to those who have made and continue to make the sacrifice it takes to keep our country safe.
