Memorial Weekend & More

Memorial weekend was wonderful.  Lance went to Flippin's graduation Friday night, Saturday evening we had the Benton's over for dinner, Sunday we went to Lance's uncle and aunts cabin on the river, & Monday we just enjoyed the day.

Lance's Uncle Randy and Aunt Brenda invited us down to their cabin.  It's on the river so we were super excited to get down there.  It was Randy, Brenda, their two daughters & their kids, Forrest & Nina, my mother in law, Aunt Janice, and my crew.  So much fun!  We got to fish, catch crawdads, play in the water, eat fish, and lots of sweets!  We went down there around 4 PM and didn't get home till after 9 PM.  And we went the entire time so we all slept good that night.

 Nina got to hold B and she got him to sleep.  She's the baby whisperer!

Micaela helped with Bennett.  It's funny because Lance & I always worry that we are leaving B to others but we need to realize that everyone WANTS him.  And not that it matters, but Bennett is probably the easiest baby ever.  He never cried the five hours we were there. 

 It was so pretty down there and with the water low-it made the day perfect.

Landon loved the water.

 We looked for crawdads but it was only Lance & Rhett who would touch them.

 Such a fun day

After we played in the water, we headed up to the pavilion to eat.  Uncle Randy fried fish, french fries, hush puppies, and Aunt Brenda made cole slaw and beans.  It was so yummy!

After we ate, we all went back and played in the water some more.  Once we finally got them tired we went back for more food...ha!  We celebrated Jeryn's birthday a few days early.  His momma had cake and ice cream.

The cabin was wonderful and I'm so glad we went down there.  Thanks to Randy and his crew for inviting us down there.  Hopefully this will be a Memorial day tradition here on out.

So all weekend Lance had been hunting around for a truck.  He has drove his truck for at least 10 years so it was about time he got something new and that was more family friendly.  He looked at Mtn.Home, Harrison, Melbourne, and finally Ash Flat.  He went with my dad on Monday over to Melbourne but they didn't have anything he wanted.  So they decided to drive over to Ash Flat since they were so close and it is a good thing they did....because he found exactly what he wanted and a little more.

Now we both have white vehicles...aww!  It's crazy to say this but I haven't even been for a ride in it.  I have only sat in it but we'll have to change that...its been a busy week.

I'm so glad it's the weekend.  My parents and I are getting ready for a garage sale so my house is messy (or it is for me since I'm OCD).  For some reason I want to get rid of pretty much everything I own.  I'm definitely not a collector or a hoarder.  And I'm enjoying these two boys and thankful I get to be their momma.
