Phew! What a three day weekend! It was a busy one, a good one, and one that actually felt like summer. Ryan takes the cake for hardest working husband, he put in hours installing our new patio. He even sacrificed attending my sister’s high school graduation ceremony to get a full day in on Saturday ;). I also put in several hours (and took a picture to document it for the record) over the weekend and past week, but did attend my baby sister’s said graduation with Henry. I seriously can’t believe she’s in college now! It seems like just yesterday she was cutest little chunk of a toddler (I mean that in the best way possible. She had serious rolls and was seriously cute). I may have slightly teared up at the first sight of her entering the auditorium in her cap and gown. Henry did amazing during the looooong ceremony, btw, color me impressed. After some photos ops we had a lovely lunch at Jordan’s boyfriend’s house. Then it was back home to work on the patio with Ryan. Henry loved playing in the makeshift sandbox for hours. Sunday was even more patio work, with a break for the pool (!) and our first delicious dinner on the (mostly done) patio. Monday was more – you guessed it – patio work! Though not as much because the tile saw broke in the middle of cutting a paver But we did get more pool time and another grilled dinner.
Henry also had lots of firsts this weekend – first ice cream cone all to himself (he devoured it), first “big boy” walking of Beck (no stroller/wagon and he held the leash the whole way), first ride down the new slides at the (finally) re-opened park, first jumps on the neighbor’s trampoline, first flip flops (so cute! i die)…and first blood-drawing injury – a bad knee scrape at the pool (no tears – probably because of the excitement to get into the water).
Love me the start of summer!
How was your Memorial Day weekend?
