Memorial Day Party

This past weekend, the man and I were able to travel to my parent’s home to spend two days with family and friends. I guess our family likes to party because that’s exactly what we did! We were invited to my friend’s b’day party as she celebrated the 23 years God has given her! What a blast! We were soaking up the sunshine and the cool lake breeze the entire afternoon while taking turns ridingย the wave runner! I sure didn’t want to miss out on a ride and with my life jacket buckled up over my preggo belly, I hung on tight and did some laughing and screaming as we jetted down the lake and hit some good waves! (Abbie’s momma may be a bit of a dare devil sometimes; so, I’m thinking this little girl may have an adventurous streak herself!)

Memorial Day came with great anticipation! My brothers and their families, along with friends, and many relatives graced my parent’s home with their presence. Just to be able to relax and soak up some more sun was more than fantastic for me and I enjoyed seeing the little kiddos and the “big kiddos” ๐Ÿ˜‰ swimming in the pool, playing games, and eating lots of fun food!

Many special memories were made and nothing beats good ol’ hearty laughs with people you love so much!
