our memorial day weekend.

First of all, while it's super fun to lay around all day basking in the sun and spending time with family, I did take some time to remember those who gave it all fighting for my freedom and giving me the right to lay around all day basking in the sun. I'm hugely proud of my very military family and thankful to all who have served and continue to serve. So a huge thank you to our military and to the families of those who served but never came home. Their sacrifice is everything.

Now, some pictures huh?

Saturday my grandparents and aunt came up to spend the weekend with us. BG was super excited to have new people to play with. I was super excited to have new people to pawn her off on entertain her for a bit.

We headed into town that afternoon to look around Buy Buy Baby (pink puffy heart) and eat at Mimi's Cafe. So good. Aside from the fact that little Miss was on a big time nap strike, she was on her best behavior and charmed everyone at the place. No idea where she got that social butterfly gene from...

Sunday morning we took my grandmother and aunt to the church here in town we've been visiting. After church, we picked up my granddad and hit up lunch at another local place here in town. The food was amazing. I seriously can't wait to go back.

We stopped on the way home at Target to get BG a pool for the back porch. Best ten dollars ever spent. She loves it. Of course we also picked up this big purple ball which she loved until she missed face planting into it and hit the floor.

That was fun.

We spent the rest of the afternoon watching the kid splash around in her new pool. I took about three million pictures because there is nothing cuter than a chubby, little baby in an adorable suit and a water logged diaper. If you think there is, well, you might want to scroll down quickly. ;)

Sunday was also my aunt's birthday so we of course had to get a big 'ol ice cream cake for the occasion. Man. I love me some ice cream cake.

Before they headed out of town Monday morning, we met up for a quick breakfast to see them off.

We spent the rest of the day napping, sunning, and eating. For some reason Mr. P sent me to the store for ribs where I wandered up and down the meat counter for an hour sending him texts with pictures of different cuts of meat. I still didn't end up with what he wanted, but it was delish so whatever.

This little diva is as big a fan of being outside as her Mama is. I can pretty much predict what we'll be doing the rest of the summer.

Sigh.. I am SO glad it's summertime!

Eme has the same ball (but in turquoise), and the same pool on our deck. Now, question, does she get any splinters from crawling on the deck? I've picked a bunch of tiny ones off of Eme in the last few weeks. Its sooo annoying. I wish I had a trek-deck.

Our Baby "D" said...

I LOVE her chubby cheeks! You can just tell she is such a happy baby girl! :)

By the way, you're totally looking skinny(er)!

The hat & glasses? I die.

She makes summer look so good! She's just the cutest little thing. Enjoy!

Jen Watts said...

Oh goodness.. Those little cheeks!! Love her! I also love her little dress with the palmetto! I must find for Carsyn before our Charleston trip!

Kristin said...

Awwwwwww, look at her workin' the sunnies. Soooooo sweet!

OMG those pool pictures are precious and so funny! I loved the one where she is standing with her chest all puffed out at the end! My boy does that same pose sometimes and it always makes me laugh! I also loved her little church dress! Precious!

Lauren said...

Those pool pictures are beyond adorable!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

I thought of your wonderful family on Monday-I am so thankful for their service! I also had to comment because you look hot in the family pic! Keep it up. Ang BG really is one of the cutest babies ever, I love her chubby cheeks and sassy facial expressions.

Ok, that second to last picture of BG in the pool? She's totally doing the Little Mermaid pose, I love it! Too cute.

A.B. said...

you look ah-mazing! And so does BG and I think she's looking more and more like you!

In addition to being generally adorable, that girl of yours is also impeccably attired. I'm debating between which I love more - the pink hat & swimsuit getup or the Palmetto appropriate dress. Love.

Also, I know this wasn't your point in posting about that kiddie pool, but thanks - I went to the (usually excellent) Buy Buy Baby the other day to buy one for Master P, and the only ones they had were apparently choke hazards for kids under 3 (?). As usual, Target is the answer.
