Memorial Day Memories

Memorial Day weekend has always been one of my favorite times of the year. My  love may have started young when we would spend three solid days at the pool followed by evening cookouts. Or maybe it was as I got older and I began to head south to Charleston for the weekend with my bestie, Kelley, and her parents. Maybe my true love of it came when I became a teacher and it meant one last day off before the true craziness of the end of the year began?! Or, perhaps it was when I truly recognized the sacrifices that were made for me to enjoy those days in the sun and the start of a long, hot summer of rest and rejuvenation. Who knows where my love began, but that's where my heart is now.

This weekend was like most of the past filled with time spent at the pool and gorging ourselves on lots of yummy food and a few too many "pool beers". What is is about drinks at the pool that just seem to go down quicker?! ;-) It was a little different this year as we adjusted our days to a little princess we know, but it was different in the best way possible.

We kicked off the weekend with a quick visit to the pool just the three of us. . .


Grandma, Grandpa, and Uncle John came up on Saturday! 

Pop Pop, Gigi, Auntie Abby, and Mark joined us on Sunday!



I think it's safe to say our little Yankee Doodle had a fabulous first Memorial Day weekend!
