Memorial Day 2013

We had such a fun filled long holiday weekend and I'm now to finally to our Memorial Day. It started out great for me because Brian got up with Mallory and they went for a morning ride and to get breakfast, meaning...I got to sleep in! It was so nice!

After breakfast, we got ready to head out to see Pop and Mimi!

I love this dress that was handed down by our friend, Karlyn. 

Pop and Mimi have a nice backyard so Mallory had room to run around which means she was a happy camper!

Mallory kept saying "Mimi" the whole way down which is new because she hadn't been saying Pop and Mimi much before. It's fun to see things start coming together for her. And a B/Caleb Memorial Day picture for you.

Pop and Mimi's neighbors had a golf cart and Mallory loved sitting in it and pretending she was driving. She probably would have stayed in it all day if we let her but then this happened....(squirm alert)

Yes, a snake. Yikes! Rob started Pop's riding lawnmower to move it and when he did, a snake that was under it at the time, moved to the garden where Rob and Pop killed it. Yes, I think Brian, Caleb and Cade were all hiding in the house. Just kidding, that was me and Mallory. Moving on...

Mallory sat with Mrs. Ward (Mimi's mom) for a while and they both loved it! And I love capturing photos of Pop and Mallory together.

And guess who Mallory wanted to sit by? Her cousin Cade, of course!

Auntie was there too but I didn't get a picture - sorry Auntie! We had hot dogs and burgers hot off Pop's grill. All the food was yummy including Mimi's banana pudding! 

We had a wonderful Memorial Day! We are grateful for all the men and women who have sacrificed so much that we can have the freedom we do!
