I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! We celebrated by spending the weekend outside. All the pools on post opened this weekend, so Amie and I took the babies and Nicolas on opening day. We had a great time, and my little fish of course had a blast. We were having so much fun, that neither one of us thought to take any pictures.
Later that day we had family pictures made. I can't even put into words how amazing they've turned out! We have a few preview pictures, but I'll do an entire post when we get the whole shoot.
On Saturday we took a family trip to Callaway Gardens. The closest beach to us is Panama City Beach, FL and unfortunately it's a 3 hour drive. Luckily for us, Callaway Gardens is run by a genius who created a man-made lake complete with sand. It's our own little beach here in landlocked Columbus. It was the baby's first trip to the "beach" and she did great! She was exhausted since she refused to nap all day. When we got home it took awhile for her to crash, but when she finally did, she slept all the way til 5.30! Normally she wakes up at least once between 9 and 5.30, but she was was zonked from the beach.
Sunday we went to church, and the spent the rest of the day at the Herrera's. Joe and Israel became great friends when they worked together (Joe was XO and Israel was a drill sergeant and then 1SGT). They have received orders, so they're moving to New York this week. We're so sad to see them go, but we're really excited about taking a trip to New York to see them in a few months.
Monday was spent at the pool, and then home watching a Band of Brothers marathon. If you haven't watched this series, you should check it out. It's a great tribute to a Battalion in WWII.
I hope everyone had a fun and enjoyable weekend. I hope you all took a moment to remember the real reason we celebrate Memorial Day.
