Memorial Day Weekend 2015

We had a great Memorial Day weekend, it was busy, but we also had a lot of fun!  The weather was going to be iffy this weekend and we had so much stuff to get done around the house, we decided to stay home this year.  Friday night we went golfing with friends of ours, and then enjoyed a campfire.  Saturday was a working day.  Brad got the garden planted and worked on cleaning up the yard while I scrubbed all the wood on our porch.  6 hours worth of scrubbing.  Yowsa.


I can't even tell you how amazing it looks, and how sore my arms are!


I am so bummed that I didn't take any pictures at all.  Saturday evening we had a birthday party for my niece, and we picked up Alayna's bff Brynn and had her overnight.  The older two were gone at friends houses.  We got home around 7:30 and Brad and I were wiped out!  We decided to rent the movie Unbroken.  Wow.  It was very good, but very dark.  There were parts we skipped because the violence was a bit much.  Really makes you think of all the POW's, past and present and how horrible they are treated.
Sunday we finished up planting flowers and then decided to have some friends over for supper.  Brad smoked some salmon, steaks and a whole chicken.  I made homemade baked beans (they were so good!) and we had lots of yummy salsas and dips.
I framed this picture of my late grandpa Arlo and made a little Memorial Day tablescape in honor of him.  He was in the Navy for 4 years and I was able to get some information on his service through Ancestry.com.  Miss him so much!


Monday was a day of relaxation!  It was glorious!  That afternoon we took the girls to see Pitch Perfect 2, it was ok, the girls loved it.  After the movie we went to Park Diner for supper and gorged on burgers, fries and chocolate shakes.  Soooo yummy!  We were all exhausted and I went to bed at 8:30, haha!
