Memorial Day Memories

What a beautiful Memorial Day weekend it was! Perfect for lots of outdoor fun. Grandpa & Grandma came for Caedmon's soccer game on Saturday. Thankfully they got there in time to watch most of Caedmon's game...they had a flat tire on the way down. After the game, we helped them find a new tire then grilled out for lunch at our house. Grandpa Jerry helped my hubby put up a new clothesline which I am SUPER excited about. The cheap one we bought a few years ago just didn't do the job and with the injury it incurred from my husband running into with the tractor...it was time to replace the thing. Caedmon has been asking to roast hotdogs and marshmallows for awhile, so that is what we did that evening...one of our favorite summer family acitivities. On Sunday, we grabbed a bucket of KFC and had a picnic at Lawton Park with my parents after church.We walked over to Headwaters Park and the kids found the famous fountain. We forgot their bathing suits...oh well.
Needless to say, they were soaked by the time we dragged them away. So much fun!
And on Monday, more water fun while mommy and daddy worked outside moving a dog kennel and trimming crabapple trees.

What a fun weekend you had! We also did the hot dog roast outside! Isn't headwaters fountain so much fun! We took the kids last summer and plan on returning this summer! And best of all it is free :)

How fun!!! That's a great idea to take the kids downtown and let them play at the park and the fountain - we'll have to take Kylie this summer :-)
What fun to have property that you can have a fire and roast hotdogs on!!!

So was Mom driving when they had the flat tire? ( :

Glad y'all are getting some summer weather! You're giving me some ideas. There's a fountain like that in a nearby town...

Mom was not driving, but did have flashbacks to that long road in Weberville! Sorry we couldn't stay for hot dogs and marshmallows--Caedmon's invitation still touches my heart. I love the fountain photos with the pure delight on the children's faces.
