Weekend in Review ~ Bulldog Tourney in Pheonix

 It was an absolutely beautiful weekend and yet we spent a good deal of it inside watching Seth play basketball. I love to watch my son with all my heart, but NOT on a gorgeous June day. We all made the most of it and even grabbed a team dinner in between games. Having lots of fun with some interesting new families.

 On Monday Seth's class went on a fieldtrip on the river. These are some of the pics that Seth's teacher and another mom sent to me. He said he had a great time and it was the perfect day on the river. Fun fun.
Both kids have been so fortunate this year. Their teachers are the absolute best and we couldn't be prouder of them.

 Friday night we went on our annual Clayton Crawl. This year we hit DiPrinzio's, Channelside, Coyote Moon on the River and Wood Boat. Such a fun Friday night.

 Erica was in utter heaven that Coyote Moon had karaoke. Pete even broke out in song. I will continue to carry on the tradition of videographer and not get on stage. Ha.

 On Saturday we held a garage sale at our house. The kids sold lemonade and chips like they have done since they were itty bitty. We were very successful getting rid of some bulky items and even our old mower sold. Happy Day.
 On Sunday we took Leah and her friend Aliza to Whittaker Falls for a little hike.

 It was such a fun little water fall hike.
On the way home we stopped in to visit with my grandparents. They loved our little surprise visit.

Memorial Day Weekend

 We hosted the 2nd annual Memorial Day bonfire at our house last weekend. We have been so lucky to meet so many wonderful families through sports and school that the numbers grew this year to 60+ people at the party. It was a BLAST. The kids were amazing and so was the food. Next year I think we will rent a port-a-potty for the party though. It would make life much easier with that many people.

 Boys out numbered the girls by a ton and this is only a few of the boys.
 Girl power
 The chaperones
 Double fisting
 Grill masters
 Flames were pretty high this year

 We burned 20+ trees, a wicker bench, a rocking chair and 4 pallets

 Saved the door for next time.
 Saturday night we had an unexpected date night at Waterside in Henderson. Perfect night to sit by the lake with the hubs.

 Sunday Leah made her maiden voyage in Gram's pool and loved every minute.
 Island Girl is home, uncovered, cleaned and almost ready to hit the lake. No dock slip this year so we will be trailering it. New adventures await.
 On Monday we went to Southwicks for the day to sit by the lake. The kids had such a blast and we are all sun kissed from our day off.

Happy Memorial Day. It was the perfect weekend and a MUCH needed extra day off.

Mellow Weekend

 This past weekend was pretty mellow thank goodness. Leah had Liv spend the night Friday night and Seth was with Nico until super late.
 On Saturday we traveled to Syracuse for Molly's bridal shower. Leah was bored out of her mind, but she was also a really good sport about the whole day. After the shower we literally vegged at home because I caught some sort of allergy cold and I needed to rest.

Sunday we bought some veggies for a mini garden and finished up projects on the yard before our Memorial Day bonfire this weekend. It was a wonderful weekend.
