Memorial Day Weekend Part 1

Memorial Day Weekend Part 1

We packed a LOT into Memorial Day weekend, so I have split it into two parts.

Saturday morning started off bright and early with a 5k with some coworkers. Becca and I had matching shirts made. Since we knew we weren’t going to be the fastest- they say “I run like a 90’s slow jam”

We got lots of compliments on them! (PS. My friend who made them has them for sale here).

We also met up with our coworkers Daysi and Ashlyn. So fun to do this together (though Daysi and Ashlyn were faster than us!)

After the run and a quick shower, we went to brunch together. Remi was SO funny this day. She was adamant that she wanted a dish pictured on our table- it was pancakes with fruit and bacon. She didn’t care about the pancakes, but she wanted fruit and bacon and “sour cream” (which was whipped cream).  She and daddy also enjoyed coloring together.

And she wore her cape to breakfast, because she’s super Remi.

We stopped by the park at the dump (yes, our city dump has a fun park right outside!) and played on the equipment for a few minutes.

The park is (of course) trash and recycling themed, so you can drive a trash truck and slide down a trash can. ha!

She always LOVES the swings.

After the park, we went to a hair appointment where I chopped off my hair! 🙂 I love the new, easier to style, short do!

We spent the evening at my mom’s.  The pool water was a bit cold, but the view and the sunshine were awesome.

Sunday morning, Remi got into my makeup while I showered and she gave herself a 5 o’clock shadow. ha!

And we all matched in our red, white and blue and sunglasses. We had our friend Gabby take a picture in the nursery. Love it!

Part 2 coming tomorrow!


Playing Catch Up

Playing Catch Up

We had a busy couple of weeks, but here are the highlights of some fun inbetween.

One afternoon Remi asked to go to the park after school, so we agreed to a fun night. We stopped first for an early dinner (so we could play until it was time to go home), and Remi surprised us! She asked the server for chopsticks and USED THEM.

She amazes us every day.

Caitlyn came to visit after her graduation, and Steel Magnolias happened to be showing in the theaters for the 30th anniversary.  We LOVED seeing it on the big screen!

My work team had a fun team building day where we went to Lake Fort Smith and hiked about 6 miles on the Shepherd Springs Loop.  It was hot and mosquito-y, but it was a fun day with my coworkers.

We finally found some sunglasses that Remi likes to wear. Yes, they are little boys. No, I don’t care.

She was SO HAPPY to match daddy in her sunglasses and ride on the lawn mower with him.

Caitlyn’s Graduation

Caitlyn’s Graduation

My sweet cousin Caitlyn was born when I was 13, so it’s sort of hard to believe she’s ready to graduate! I can’t be old enough for her to be 18, right?!

We are SO proud of her and so excited she’s coming near us for college. We LOVE KK and are excited to spend more time with her.

We went to Hot Springs to celebrate her graduation. Her church hosted a lovely lunch for families, and it was a good time to all be together.

Saturday evening, they had a party at a family friend’s home. It was pouring rain, and silly Remi HAD to use her own umbrella walking in. #soindependent

Sunday morning, my mom went to their church for the service, but I wanted to let Remi take the morning slow.  We got breakfast and went to the pool. She LOVED her Paw Patrol swim suit and swimming with us!

IMG_0205

After a good nap, we got ready and grabbed lunch and took it to Uncle Neil. Remi LOVES pushing him in his big chair. She also loves the library there.

IMG_0207

She was GREAT during graduation (thanks to my phone and some headphones). It was great to see Caitlyn get her diploma and cheer on her class.

We snapped a few pics after the ceremony and then headed to a big dinner with extended family.

We got home late, but it was a wonderful time with family and celebrating Cait.
