Memorial Day Weekend FUN!

We had a GREAT Memorial Day Weekend! Saturday morning marked the beginning of our outdoor fun by heading over to the Route 66 Park in Bethany. Gibson had a blast running around being chased by daddy, and both the boys of course loved swinging. It was a beautiful morning and we had a great time as a family.
After the park we went home and got ready for the day. We met our good friends from Midland, the Burns family and their friends the Dyer's at Chick-fil-a for lunch and then headed over to the Dyer's house for some outdoor fun. I of course left my camera in the car, but the kids enjoyed the afternoon in the sun, sliding down the slip-n-slide hill that the guys created in the back yard. It was a HOT day, and the kids were worn out, but they had SO much fun!!

On Sunday we went to Jimmy's Egg for breakfast where Gibson devoured his kids sized pancake breakfast that would fill most adults. We were so proud that he ate so well. After breakfast we had to let Gibson check out the "Choo-Choo Train" over at the dentists office next door to the restaurant. Gibson LOVED it!!

Then we were off to meet our friends at the ZOO! Gibson had a blast looking at the animals. I think he likes it more now that he knows the names of some of the different animals, some of his favorites being the Zebra's and Giraffe's.
Taking some time to sit down and relax in the shade before heading out to look at more animals.
After we had lunch at the ZOO we went to the Fins and Feathers show. They showed different tricks that the sea lions and birds could do. Other than a mild breakdown from Gibson this was really fun.
That night we went back to Dyer's house for a cookout dinner. The kids had a blast playing in the backyard again, and after dinner we gave the boys a bath. That is Kolter in the tub with Gibson, he had a lot of fun pouring water on top of Gibson's head.
On Monday we went over to the Williams for another cookout and some pool time for the kiddos. They had a BLAST yet again!! These boys LOVE being outside that's for sure.
Emma, Gibson and Chad in the pool... I am sure Gibson was telling Chad no at this point... He says "Da No!"
I love this tongue thing... looks like he is really concentrating or something.
Chad has recently started doing this shy/embarrassed thing where he covers his face from whoever is looking at him. It is too funny to watch him do this.
We finally got them out of the pool!
Then it was time for POPSICLES!! Gibson LOVED his red, white and blue Popsicle.
After dinner the pools dried off and Chad fell asleep while Gibson showed off his skills to Daddy on the iPhone.
Needless to say it was a long, busy, fun-filled, HOT weekend... and we wouldn't have had it any other way. We cant wait for the Burns family to come up and visit again, and we have made new friends with the Dyer's family whom we hope to hang out with again very soon.
Hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend, and also said a special thanks to all those who have fought, and are continuing to fight for our freedom. Thank you to all the veterans and soldiers out there... we are ever so grateful for all that you do!
