Memorial Day 2016

We enjoyed our three day weekend last weekend and definitely remembered what the holiday is all about. So very thankful for the men and women who sacrificed their lives and served for our freedom! 

Mallory wore her red, white and blue. This was the best picture I could get :)

Mid-morning, Brian, Mallory, Mom, Dad and I headed to Ham Orchards. Brian, Mallory and I had never been before so we were looking forward to going!

Since it's been raining in Texas for the past 2 months (or so it seems), we weren't sure if the rain would hold off for us to go but it did! However, since it had rained so much before, there was a lot of mud where you picked the blackberries but that didn't stop us! We got our bucket, put on our rain boots and headed out for some blackberry pickin'.

I apologize for the incredibly white legs but I switched back to my flip-flops as soon as we were done

Mallory had the best time picking all the blackberries.

Showing off all she got

We had their great BBQ for lunch and had to get some strawberry ice cream for desert. It was good!

We had a great time and are so glad we got to go with Nana and Papa!

Monday afternoon, our favorite Estes' came over and we grilled burgers and hung out.

A little bball was played

And Caleb was kind enough to climb up and get the ball out of the gutter :)

The burgers were good but the company was even better!

What a fun day with our families!
