Happy Memorial Day

Today we honor all those that serve.  We are so thankful for their service!

In addition to remembering those that gave all, we celebrated what feels like the start of the summer.  And our weekend was saved just in time.  Thankfully Jackson's fever was short lived and Darren and Matthew were able to return to the house on Sunday night, allowing us to continue on with our Monday plans.  After some basic chores around the house this morning, we ate lunch at one of our favorite restaurants (Freebirds), then quiet time (where the kids actually napped!), and later we went over to a friend's house to swim and have dinner with 3 other families.  It was great fun and a great ending to the long weekend!

Happiness is...being in the pool!
We love Matthew's squinty grin.

Thanks to Grandma Jan, swim lessons, and a swim vest,
Jackson is much more confident in the water.
Last year he wouldn't even get in, and this year,
we struggle to get him out!
Alyssa loves being able to swim. 
It is going to be a fun summer!
