We had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! This was our first MDW in a few years that we weren’t rushing home to Florida to see my Dad. While that was a super sad realization for me when I was digging through my archives, it was nice to have 3 days to spend at home as a family together.
Everyone was exhausted from the week so we had a super low key night of cocktails and tacos.
Matt made pancakes for breakfast and Caroline and I got to work making a strawberry poke cake! That afternoon we went Uptown and walked through Speed Street, ate lunch then spontaneously let the kids cool off by running through the Waterfalls at Romare Bearden Park. On the way back to the car we grabbed ice cream cones from an ice cream truck on Speed Street.
Saturday evening we grilled steaks for Steak Night and after the kids were in bed Matt and I sat on our side porch with a bottle of wine and a ginormous container of cookies.

Sunday morning we went to church and then out to lunch at Sundries. Later that evening we had a family BBQ!

We ran to Home Depot and grabbed some plants for the backyard and spent the entire day playing in the sun. Matt surprised the kids with a new alligator pool which kept them busy for hours upon hours. It was a great weekend and we are so thankful for those who have given their lives to serve our country!

Loving all the Summer fun and your delicious table and flowers x
That picture of Thomas eating watermelon says Summer!
My FIL has stage 4 cancer and we’ve spent the year rushing down to Charlotte to be with him as much as possible. We are just a few weeks shy of being without him, and your sad realization about being home and not traveling hit home. Hugs to your family!
On a happier note, where did Matt get that kids pool?
I am SO sorry about your FIL. Cancer is seriously the worst. Praying for you these next few weeks.
Thank you very much!
