Memorial Day Weekend

What a beautiful weekend it was.  We headed up north to Hubbard to get out of the city and spend some time with my family.  On Sunday, we had a big BBQ with a lot of our family.  Mike’s daughter Jodi and her whole family also came up, along with Maggie and her boys.  They were minus Jason as he is currently in Germany doing some training before he heads to Kosovo on a peace-keeping mission as a helicopter pilot.  It was great getting to see the kids, Kenneth, Abbie, Connor, and Will.  We had a great time watching the kids play on the slip & slide and shoot their water guns.  The adults had fun playing ladder golf and drinking adult beverages 🙂  It was just a great day.  That evening us four along with Mom and Mike went out to the farm to check out the damage from the corn crib fire and to roast hot dogs and smores over a well contained fire.  On Monday we stopped by the pool to see Dad and Brenda.  Brenda is managing the pool again this summer, so they were working on getting it ready to open.  We then headed back home for some much needed rest from our getaway.  None of us slept well on Sunday night since all of my boys were up frequently.  Jaxson was up twice vomiting from coughing so hard.  So everytime he coughed real hard, Brad ran in to make sure that he wasn’t vomiting all over the place.  Holden didn’t sleep well either because he too has a cold, is teething (he popped his first tooth thru last week), and wasn’t in his own bed.  Brad ended up staying home from work on Tuesday because he didn’t feel well with his terrible cold/congestion/lack of sleep.  Everyone is now on the rebound and gearing up for another nice weekend.
