Memorial Day Weekend

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

First of all a HUGE thanks to the men and women who lost their lives fighting for our freedom, and also to the brave people currently in the armed forces. 'Thanks' just doesn't seem like enough for such a big sacrifice. 

We had an amazing weekend, kicked off Friday night with dinner out as a family at Brann's, and a trip to the greenhouse to buy flowers for our window boxes.

Saturday was a beautiful morning, I took Jovie for a walk while the boys mowed the lawn and planted the flowers. They also picked up our camper, the boys were so excited to see it, we just had to eat lunch in it :)

Later in the afternoon we headed to the cottage. It was Jovie's first time there. She cried and cried when we got there, so scared of new surroundings, but I think she'll learn to love it there like the rest of us!

The boys (especially Grayden) just loved playing on the paddle boat!

Sunday we went to church and then headed out to the cottage again. 

looking so cute in their red, white and blue

First pontoon ride of the season...

The water was a chilly but that didn't seem to stop the kids!

Taking a little break from being outside to watch some "Little Einstein's" 

Monday morning we headed to Zeeland to watch the parade at Grayden's friend Geneva's house. We all really enjoyed it!

Then it was off to the cottage again (so nice being so close and being able to go back and forth all weekend!)

Grayden went fishing right away and caught two fish, all by himself! His smile was just priceless!

Bathing Beauty! 

(Jovie just wasn't herself all weekend, I took her to the doctor on Tuesday and she has an ear infection, poor thing!)

I hope you all had a fun weekend too!
