What We Did On Our Weekend Vacation

Ok. So it really wasn't a vacation. However, it was 3 days of no strict agendas and plenty of family time.

We got started on our new garden. Well, Dr. Dad got started on our new garden. It used to be a patch near our Barn. After some observation last year, we decided it's too shady there, so we are trying a raised bed garden in a sunnier spot.

Observe. Shade.

Observe. Sun!

Then it was off to our favorite local Zoo (thanks again Nonna and Papa for our membership!) where we met up with a sweet cousin and her family.

The Zoo is really going to the birds.

More yard work on Sunday and then a trip to the pool! If the hot weather we had this weekend is any indicator of the summer...we will be spending a lot of time here.

Monday we attended the annual Memorial Day Parade (in the city Dr. Dad is from). We were supposed to go to a park afterwards and have a picnic, but the Weather Channel really came through again with an unexpected storm right in the middle of the day. We moved the festivities to Grandma and Grandpa's house, which was just fine with the kids.

Waiting for it to start raining candy.

We really enjoyed ourselves this whole weekend. Sometimes a weekend like that makes it even harder to get back into the weekly grind.

Baby Girl has 6 more days of school and then we will be doing her dance recital and the summer will be off and running.

I am so glad we took these days to stop and smell the roses!
