Our wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!!

This weekend was one of the best we have had in a long time!
Full of friends, fun, crawfish and pooltime!
It was a nice reminder that despite the heat in Texas, I really love summertime!

We started off Saturday celebrating my best friend, Melissa's Birthday!
All of our boys (which are pretty darn cute if I must say!!)
waiting to leave for Dodie and Skotts!! It took all of 5 minutes for all the kids to head straight for the pool!
Me and my main squeeze!
Landon and Austin
Partners in crime for another self portrait!
I made fruit kabobs that were so yummy!
The had 65 lbs of crawfish! CRAZY! This was round one!
Coach Skott taught Landon how to peel his own crawfish (after many times of Landon asking him to peel them for him! lol)
Look mom...I did it!
All our Louisiana family would be so proud!
Now thats just gross!!!
It was a great day...Landon spent 6 hours in the pool and we were both exhausted by the end of the day!
On Sunday we headed over to Landons friends house! They went to Montessori together for 4 years! These boys are something else..they will all be going to summer camp together, I wonder if I should warn someone! haha
Day 2 in the pool!

Taking a break from their 7 hour pooltime!
They had a blast jumping in the pool!Check out the faces! :)We had the best bbq and pina coladas!! Snack time!
On Memorial Day we headed to the Purvis house! They wanted to go swimming AGAIN! I'm hoping we wont be needing the life jacket much longer though! With all this swimming, he should be a pro in no time! lol

Korbin and West Vivian and the fruit kabobs! They were such a hit earlier that I decided to make more!
I think this last picture is proof that we were exhausted by Monday night!

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial weekend too!
