Memorial Day Weekend 5/28/2012

Memorial Day Weekend was a great weekend for us. We had a lot of fun. On Sat. we went to a park in our neighborhood and let the kids play. Drew also taught them how to play frisbee. That was pretty comical.

My sweet Bailey.
Playing Frisbee.
Drew showing Weston.

On Sun. I coordinated what they wore to church. I thought it was so dang cute and tried to take a picture, but this is the best I got.

Memorial Day was really fun too. My sister had the idea to have a water day in the backyard, so we pulled out our slip n slide and she brought her water snake. The kids had a blast. We also bbq'd. There were steaks, burgers, bacon wrapped shrimp, hot dogs, potato salad and chips. It's nice to have a family member close by to celebrate a holiday with. And I love that my kids get to play with their cousins so much. It's something I always wanted when I was a kid, to spend time with my cousin's. So I am glad the kids all enjoy being around each other.

Cute cute Ben.
I love these pictures, 2 seconds before Christy's dog, Cannon, was drinking the water shooting from the snake, and immediately Ben followed suit.

Then the slip n slide came out...Parker taking a run for it.

Weston is the most uncoordinated kid I know. Love it.
Autumn's turn.

I love Parkers face in this pic. After this he retired from slip n slides. He slipped backwards and hit his head and he was done.
Ben wanted a turn.
Mark had the solution.

We enjoyed some otter pops.

Mark tried to get Parker to go down again and he didn't want any part of it.

So he played basketball.

Ben makes some adorable faces.

My beautiful Bailey slept through most of it but came out towards the end.
Mark and Christy.
These two little boys crack me, they can argue and pick on each other, and then the next second Parkers pulling up a chair and asking Weston to sit next to him so they can watch Autumn. Love it.
It was a great Memorial Day weekend. No pics of food, or anything. But we did enjoy some great food. I believe we also played Just Dance Kids and Christy sure knows how to move. :)

Autumns Graduation

Yes! I am so behind. It's ridiculous. I hate to jump to a Memorial Day post or Reunion post and skip everything in between- I do it all the time.

Autumn graduated from Preschool on May 16 (her birthday). I was incredibly emotional the whole time. It was the second time I had sat through a preschool graduation for her. But this was the final one for her, and I hated to see her leave this amazing program. I have loved this preschool, her teachers, the aides, the therapists, everything. I am sad to not have a kid attending there anymore.

Before leaving we dressed her in the shirt they asked us to have them wear.
 My mom holding Autumn and Westons hands as we walked in.
 Singing with her class. They sang 3 different songs.
 Jammin' to the ABC rock.
 They had just finished singing a song titled 'Adios mi amigos' and they sung it in English and Spanish and did sign the language to it. It totally made me more emotional. I kept hoping no one would look at me because then the tears would just flow!
 Autumn walked across the stage to get her diploma and goody bag.
 In the hallway checking out her stuff.
 Afterwards we went to Yogurt Jungle to celebrate. All of those pictures are on my phone. When we got home we took one more picture to capture the excitement of that night. I am so proud of Autumn and all that she accomplished in the last two years of preschool.
I can't believe in the Fall she'll be a Kindergartener. It's amazing to me and I am so excited for this new adventure for her.
