Memorial Weekend

We had a wonderful three day weekend! We spent a lot of time with my family and enjoyed every ounce of sunny weather that was given to us. This next week is going to be one of the busiest weeks ever! There is so much to do before we fly out next Monday. I need to finally change my last name with DMV, clean house, pack boxes, pack suitcases and watch little ones. Anyway, here is a recap of our awesome weekend.

I hope you all took some time to truly acknowledge what Memorial Day is all about. This is a photo of my Grandpa when he was in the Navy. My Grandpa passed away a few years ago, but I think of him daily... and spent extra time thinking of him this weekend. He was the greatest man I have ever known. 

Saturday Grace and Chris invited us over for a bbq. It was great to spend time with them and Erica. We had chicken, baked beans (from scratch... thanks Grace), fruit, corn and some yummy dessert. I also made Paleo almond butter cups and they turned out amazing! I will have to share my recipe the next time I whip up a batch. 

How cute is Grace's dog Maverick... he's wild but so cute. 
Sunday we slept in and enjoyed some lazy time at home before I headed out to take some photos of Grace and Chris. I swear we are cursed. Every time we are supposed to take pictures the weather turns crappy. We did the best we could and I got quite a few shots I'm pleased with (I'm not sharing until their Save the Dates get mailed out. I just wish we wouldn't have had to battle dark skies, wind and rain.

Today was spent taking photos of Amelia, visiting with my Grandma and doing some clothes shopping for Mark (he needed stuff before our trip). It was a great day. I'm just now going through the photos I took of Amelia, but I'm so happy with how they turned out. 

the sun was so harsh it was blinding us
We of course had to have some funny pictures thrown in with the totally adorable ones. This cracks me up. 

This is Amelia's fake smile... she gets it from her Auntie Erica, but she wanted a picture to show her Grandma Tami her new shoes. She fell in love with these pink Sperry's and just had to have them for our trip.

I hope you all enjoyed time with family and friends this weekend.
