Memorial Day Weekend

Drew and I had a fun, semi-relaxing weekend. I say semi-relaxing because quite frankly, my idea of relaxing looks more like laying semi-comatose on the couch watching tv and having absolutely NOTHING on the agenda. We split the weekend up to accommodate both my need for rest and Drew needs for doing stuff.

Saturday Brayden was finally able to meet his Aunt Mare! Drew and I enjoyed getting to visit with Mare and Reid all afternoon. All 4 of us were able to stuff ourselves silly with Guido's pizza-- the best in town! Funny side note: Drew packed a bottle for when we went out to eat, that way we weren't rushed through eating and having a fussy baby. Well, I popped the lid off to feed Brayden, and the bottle was full, but there was NO NIPPLE. Kind of vital! Poor Brayden had to watch us eat Guidos while he sucked on a lame paci-- thanks Dad! Saturday night we had an impromptu dinner party at our house with some of our neighborhood friends. Drew had smoked a brisket all afternoon, so our friends brought over most of dinner and Drew had everyone sample his newfound artwork of smoking meat! A good time was had by all!

Sunday we went to church, and then Drew graciously watched Brayden while I went to the movies with our friends Jason and Susan. We went and saw "Angels and Demons"... SO good. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it. We capped off Sunday with dinner with Jason and Susan followed by a quick game of 12 dot dominoes. Drew won.

Monday was family day, and unfortunately it was raining. Drew and I had wanted to take Brayden on the walking trail but we decided that chancing it with scattered down pours and a 6 week old was a bit too much of a gamble! We instead went to TJ Maxx, Best Buy & Sams-- the stores of choice for families if I do say so myself-- and ate lunch at TGI Fridays. They are having a great special right now where any of their salads and sandwichs are just $5! So we each got a salad (that we could have easily split!) and split a chicken sandwich-- for $15!!! If you're looking for a cheap date, go to Fridays! Then we drove down to the National Cemetery and paid our respects to the men and women who have given their lives for our country. They put flags out on every grave site; I really wish it hadn't been raining AND that I had brought my SLR camera, because it would've been cool to get some artsy shots in. Monday evening we relaxed in the back yard as a family and enjoyed the cool weather the rain had brought in. I SO wish that every weekend was a 3 day weekend...
