Memorial Day Weekend

Our weather for the holiday weekend was far from summer like.  Thursday - Saturday the weather was ideal so we crammed in anything we could during those three days.  We had a big group of family over for dinner Thursday to kick off the weekend with Mexican night - Tatum was not lacking for attention at all.

Friday my mom and I went to the mall to check out the sales and gather a few more summer items for ourselves.  My stepdad came to meet us for lunch which was a treat too!

Derek and I had a low key night and took advantage of the nice weather on our deck since we knew it was probably our only shot for the rest of the weekend - we had some appetizers then put Tatum to bed and grilled salmon sliders with crab cakes for dinner.

Saturday morning we were up early trying to get some outdoor stuff in before it rained - luckily the rain pushed back until dinner time so we got everything in - first up was a family walk.

I always love getting our new flowers for the season.  We're doing some landscaping out front this year so we skipped that but got a bunch of flowers for our deck and some vegetables to grow - we're still working on getting everything set up.

We packed up sandwiches for lunch and set off for a solid afternoon for the pool - which Tatum loves! Our pool has a splash pad at the entry and Tatum was crawling all over and never once cried to get out.

We had a wedding that night so my parents came over to babysit and we headed out to celebrate with friends and enjoy a night out!

Sunday was rainy and gross and we did a whole lot of nothing - our BBQ at the Country Club got moved inside but we still went and had a good time with friends.

Monday again was gross and the weather had us so lazy - we did a lot of playing inside, a nap and not much else.

We scrapped our plans to grill that night but it did dry up enough for us to sit on the deck for a cocktail before throwing together an easy dinner and watching the Bachelorette.
