It was the first official weekend of summer and I couldn't have asked for anything better. We were at the lake, time with family and friends, and lots of memories were made.
We headed out of town as soon as we could Friday afternoon. This little guy couldn't wait to get to the lake and they watched the boats go by until dark.
These two are a mess. They love to snack together. Pops sat down with the bag
and someone quickly took over.
Saturday morning it was time to head down to the pier. Just looking at this picture, I cannot believe this little guy will be three in a few months.
The water was still pretty chilly. He kept trying to stick his feet in and would say--it's cold, too cold.
We went for a boat long boat ride and enjoyed seeing all that has changed on the water since August.
The guys sported their matching "Rawlins Lakehouse" shirts. I feel so left out.
Memorial Day is not complete without our annual smores making. We let Fulton stay up for it this year and he found the bag of marshmallows and was content.
He loved it!!! This was my third marshmallow to roast. I got a little distracted with the other two and they fell off while I was talking.
Pops is showing him the proper technique.
Sunday morning we were up bright and early and ready to celebrate KK's birthday (even though it really wasn't until Monday).
Some friends came up and Fulton instantly fell in love with their daughter, Elsie. Isn't this precious? He would just listen to her and do whatever she said. I will keep reminding him of that when he gets married one day... just listen to your wife.
A little lunch date with his new buddy.
Cake time for mom!! Happy Birthday Mom!! Hope it was a special day for you. We spent the rest of the day on the water and ended with game night. I don't think my family has laughed that hard in a long time. We were literally in tears at one point playing Balderdash. We have so much fun together.
Monday was Mom's actual birthday, so we started the day with gifts.
We decided to go for a really long boat ride, stopped to see some friends, and then decided we needed to swim. The water was still chilly, but it really felt good because it was so hot that day.
Fulton loves some Kiki and Pete.
Monday afternoon we were worn out and it was time to head home. We had a great weekend and we are so thankful for the men and women who serve and have served our country to fight for our freedom. I know it's easy to take it for granted, but we are so blessed to live in the country we do. Happy Memorial Day!
